Dr. Thomas J. Feder, DDS: Tooth Removal | Tooth Extractions in Belleville, IL
Sometimes, no matter what steps are taken, saving a tooth is impossible. When that happens, it needs to be extracted. While our Belleville, IL dentist office will take every step possible to prevent extractions of a tooth, there are times when it is the best option for your dental health.
Tooth extractions may be done for several reasons. There could be a severe infection that is not treatable using a root canal, or you could have a high amount of decay that makes the tooth potentially more harmful to leave in place. If you have fractured a tooth due to an accident, or if gum disease has caused your teeth to loosen, then extraction can become necessary. Whatever the reason, the office of Dr. Thomas J. Feder knows that extraction is a frightening idea, but we will make your experience easy.
The Tooth Extractions Process
We will anesthetize your mouth before tooth extractions so that the process will be completely painless! We also offer nitrous oxide sedation to help ease your fear and anxiety. Once you are relaxed, we will extract the tooth and equip you with the necessary materials and information to ensure your gums heal quickly and safely.
Please be sure to take any painkillers that we prescribe, and be careful not to disturb your healing gums. Don’t drink with a straw, smoke, or spit for at least 24 hours after your tooth is removed. Please check with our team if you are concerned about what you need to do to ensure proper healing.
The initial healing period will take one to two weeks. After that, we will explore any tooth replacement options you are interested in. We highly recommend a dental implant, which will completely restore the entire function and aesthetic of your extracted tooth. You can find out more about our amazing tooth replacement options by visiting our pages on dental implants, bridges, and dentures.

Regardless of the situation, we will ensure that you are in good hands.
