Does Tooth Extraction Hurt?
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a pill prescribed by your dentist and taken prior to your treatment. You will remain conscious throughout your treatment, but this medication will ease your anxiety and keep you comfortable. You will need a responsible adult to drive you to and from your appointment.
Nitrous oxide is often referred to as laughing gas. During your treatment, you will breathe in the nitrous oxide, which works to keep you relaxed. One benefit of nitrous oxide is that it acts fast and will wear off quickly, allowing you to drive yourself home after treatment
What to Expect During Your Tooth Extraction
Our welcoming and compassionate staff will do everything they can to make you feel comfortable during treatment.
Have questions about the tooth extraction process?
Keep Your Mouth Clean
Avoid the extraction site when brushing your teeth. To keep the area clean, you may gently swirl mouth wash or salt water.
Eat Soft Foods
Eat soft foods for a few days post-extraction, such as yogurt, scrambled eggs, and oatmeal. Avoid crunchy or spicy foods as you heal.
Drinking from a straw or making sucking motions can cause a dry socket. This painful condition occurs when the blood clot is prematurely dislodged. Avoid drinking from a straw for at least 48 hours.
Some swelling and discomfort are typical, and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and ice. Your dentist may prescribe pain medications or antibiotics. Take them as instructed.
Don’t I Need an Oral Surgeon for a Tooth Extraction?
No. Our dentists at Bonner Family Dentistry in Dumas, TX, have the skill, experience, and training to handle tooth extractions. An added benefit to visiting our dentistry practice is that we provide a wide range of restorative treatments to replace your tooth after extraction, such as dental bridges and implant-supported crowns. If you require specialized dental work such as a bone graft or complex extraction, your dentist can refer you to one of our trusted oral surgeons in the area.

My daughter was taken excellent care of when she needed teeth pulled. She wasn’t even aware they had already pulled her teeth. They explained everything to her before they ever begun. I am so impressed with Dr. Moore and the staff.View on Google
