Tooth Extraction

While tooth extraction is typically a last resort in dentistry, there are times when it is the best option to maintain a healthy smile.

Our dentists, Charles and Patrick Casey, perform tooth extractions as needed to protect your oral health.

Relief, Improved Health, and More

Pain Relief

A tooth that requires extraction is usually severely damaged and decayed, causing extreme pain. Removal eliminates the source of the pain, allowing patients to relax and heal.

Improved Oral Health

A tooth extraction can prevent infection or decay from spreading to surrounding teeth and gums. Wisdom teeth are notorious for trapping bacteria and creating oral health problems.

Preparation for Orthodontics

Crowded or impacted teeth cause damage to surrounding teeth over time. Extraction creates room for surrounding teeth to gradually shift into place during orthodontic treatment.

Exceptional Treatment Before, During, and After Tooth Removal

Our state-of-the-art practice in Montreal is proud to offer most dental procedures under one roof. There’s no need to worry about finding an outside doctor after tooth extraction. We offer dental implants and bridges to fill the gap once your extraction is over and healing is complete. Our father and son team work together to provide the highest quality of care possible and treat our patients like family.

Best dentist I've ever been to easy. I'm an extremely rough patient who is petrified of needles and has panic attacks. Dr. Casey AND HIS STAFF (can't stress this enough, many reviews speak of Dr. Casey but his staff is equally unbelievable and exceptional) have never judged me and have always been nothing but understanding. If you want the highest level of care possible, this is the place to go.

Reasons Why You Might Need a Tooth Extracted

In the case of mild or moderate tooth decay, we may be able to restore your oral health with a dental crown or tooth-colored-filling. However, there are several instances when your condition may be too advanced to treat with a restoration successfully. You may require this procedure if you have any the following dental issues:

  • A tooth severely weakened by oral trauma
  • Tooth loss due to advanced periodontal disease
  • Endodontic infection that can’t be eliminated with root canal therapy
  • A fracture located below the gum line
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Overcrowding

What to Expect during Treatment

Consultation

We utilize advanced 3-D imaging technology to decide whether tooth extraction is the best option for you. This allows us to plan your extraction more precisely for reduced procedure time and expedited recovery.

Anesthesia

Your dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the treatment area and help you feel more comfortable during the procedure. If you have a dental phobia or anxiety, we have additional sedation options available to help you relax.

Removal

Once you are numb, your dentist will gently loosen the tooth by rocking it back and forth. It is normal to hear noises and feel pressure during this process, but you should not feel any pain.

Sutures

If your extraction is complex and requires incisions in your gum tissue, your dentist will apply sutures to the area. A blood clot will eventually form in this area and begin the healing process, which usually takes a few days. 

What to Expect after Treatment

Bleeding

Bleeding after treatment is normal and will subside over time. Gauze is applied to the extraction site to control bleeding. We recommend changing the gauze periodically.

Medication

Over-the-counter medication can help with soreness. We may also prescribe painkillers, depending on the extent of the procedure.

Dry Socket

Do not drink anything through a straw or make a sucking motion with your mouth, as this can cause the blood clot to become dislodged. If dry socket occurs, please call our office right away.

Swelling

You may experience minor swelling, but this should subside over the next few days. Using an ice pack for a few minutes throughout the day can help calm the area.

Food

We recommend a soft food diet for a few days following treatment. Once you feel comfortable, you can start incorporating solid foods carefully back into your diet.
