How long does a tooth extraction take?

The process for one tooth takes around 30 minutes to complete. It can take more or less time, depending on the extraction reason and the tooth’s location. If you’re having multiple teeth removed, it usually takes around 10 minutes for each additional tooth, depending on the reason and location.

What does the recovery from a tooth extraction look like?

You can expect some pain, swelling, and bleeding after the extraction. A blood clot will form in the extraction site, and you’ll need to ensure it doesn’t become dislodged during the healing process. While you’ll probably feel better after a day or two, it often takes 2-3 weeks for full recovery.

When should you remove a tooth?

Your dentist will help determine if you need an extraction for unseen reasons like impaction. If you’re experiencing extreme discomfort or pain from an infected, broken, or otherwise compromised tooth, then extraction may be necessary to preserve the health of the surrounding bone and tissues. You may also require a tooth extraction if you’ve experienced significant bone loss from gum disease. If you have a specific circumstance that has you questioning if a tooth extraction is right for you, call Jonesboro Dental Care to schedule an exam!
