Teeth Extractions in Irving, Texas

Although it’s usually seen as a last resort, there are situations when a tooth needs to be removed. This may be because a tooth is growing in a way that is disrupting the development of another tooth, or because a tooth has been injured in such a way that it cannot be repaired, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

Before removing any tooth, we take a digital X-ray of the structure and its surrounding area. This provides us with the best possible assessment of the situation so that we can better plan out the process. Proper anesthesia will then be administered depending on your specific needs. Our team will use specialized dental tools and equipment to carefully pull the tooth from its socket.

Once the extraction is complete, we will work to control any bleeding. The patient will be instructed to bite down on a gauze pad for 30 to 45 minutes in order to control the blood flow. Doing this will help a blood clot to form at the extraction site. For 24 hours, the patient should take extra measures in order to avoid disturbing the blood clot. This includes refraining from smoking, using a straw, consuming drugs and alcohol and exercising vigorously during this time.

Recovery following a tooth extraction usually lasts for a few days. The patient can reduce swelling by applying an ice pack for up to 20 minutes at a time. After the swelling has gone down, a warm compress can be applied to the area. This will provide the patient with some comfort. After 24 hours, the patient can begin using warm salt water rinses to help keep the extraction area clean. Most patients also find that it is best to stick to soft foods during the recovery process.

DFW Dental Service also provides wisdom teeth removal services. A person’s wisdom teeth, which are also called the third molars, usually develop when they are in their late teens or early twenties. These final teeth are almost always removed due to the fact that there is very little space for them. Wisdom teeth also tend to grow at a very severe angle, and the can have a devastating impact on a person’s existing teeth if they aren’t safely removed.

After having their wisdom teeth removed, a patient will begin the recovery process. This usually takes about a week, but it can be shorter or longer depending upon a number of different factors. To help ensure a fast recovery, the patient should make sure that they drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest. They should also avoid smoking, as that may cause them to experience dry sockets.

If you require a tooth extraction, the experts at DFW Dental Service will work to help you get through the process. We will do everything we can to restore the quality of your oral health. Please call us at (214) 960-2291 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"I recommend this office to anyone who wants a dentist that is HONEST, professional, and experienced. I saw another dentist previously, who was quoting me much more work than necessary, and over 10x the price out of pocket after insurance. I had a difficult root canal that required more time than expected. The office got me in quickly, and has extended hours."

Marie B.

"First time here. Staff was very friendly, informative and really works with you. They're down to earth people that care about helping you. They're prices are affordable. I came here after going to a very ritzy dentist that only saw me as a payment and not a customer. Here they really were interested in helping me with my dental concerns. And I really appreciated that. I'm a customer for life and my family is too. Everyone deserves a dentist like this."

Vick A.

"I love Dr Davis and his staff! Worked me in on Saturday to evaluate my issue and put me on the path to healing. It takes me over an hour to get to his office but to be honest I would drive any distance to have him for my dentist! Always leave his office with a smile! 😀"
