Tooth Removal & Extractions
What should you expect when you are scheduled for a tooth extraction?
The Dentist will numb the area to alleviate any discomfort. After the extraction, we will issue you with an “After Oral Surgery Care” form giving you information and instructions to follow. This form will also tell you what medications to take if you are experiencing pain.
If you are a smoker, it is best not to smoke for 24 hours as smoking can effect the healing process.
If, after a few days, the pain and discomfort has not improved, please call us. Otherwise we will call you in a few days to make sure everything is healing well.We all want to keep our teeth for life. But the following circumstances force us to remove our teeth:
- Dental trauma – injury to the teeth and its associated periodontal ligament, gums and the alveolar bone; as well as the nearby soft tissues including the lips and tongue.
- Irreparable tooth disease – excessive damage to the tooth due to tooth decay or periodontal disease that renders the tooth dead. Dentists will attempt to save the tooth through crown restoration or a root canal procedure. Extraction will only be done if the tooth is beyond saving.
- Dental crowding – refers to inconsistency between tooth size and jaw size. This results in a misalignment of the row due to large teeth, small jaws or both. Because of this, the patient can always request for tooth extraction.

My children (ages 5 and 7) and I always enjoy going to Simply Dental. Dr. Gupta is skilled and professional and has given us some great tips on oral hygiene. The office is clean and attractive, and my kids love that they get to watch Netflix while they're getting their teeth cleaned! We highly recommend this practice for children or adults.

Very friendly dental clinic that is easily accessible. Been coming for regular check ups for 2 years and each time the appointment has been quick and efficient. You never have to wait long and any questions are quickly answered. The equipment seems to be updated quite often which definitely helps get the same clean feeling with a reduced cleaning time.

Dr. Sakshi Gupta and the team at Simply Dental very professional and friendly. I go for checkups twice a year and find Sakshi gives a personal service and always makes me feel as comfortable as possible. The clinic is conveniently located and I have never been kept waiting when I have an appointment.

Great Dentist and believe me as someone who hates going Sakshi and the team are awesome. She is chatty and technically great. Even puts on Netflix for my 5 yr old to watch. Can't rate her more highly.
