Extraction

Dentist

Lombard, IL.

Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent molars to emerge. These teeth are also the most likely to require extraction, due to any of several complications. However, other teeth may also require extraction if they cannot be saved by root canal therapy or other treatment. Some of the most common reasons to have teeth extracted include:

Dr. David Sanders and Dr. Leslie Sanders may recommend extraction of one or more of your teeth if any of these issues apply to you. During your consultation, we may also recommend sedation dentistry to make your experience more comfortable.

Post-Extraction Care

After your extraction, you will need to be driven home by a friend or family member. You will require rest, but lie with your head propped on a pillow to prevent prolonged bleeding.

We will apply gauze when your extraction is complete. When it becomes soaked, change it for a fresh piece. Use pain medication and ice pack as directed for pain and swelling. If bleeding continues beyond 24 hours, contact our office immediately.

For the first few days following extraction, limit your diet to soft foods. Avoid smoking or using a straw, as the pressures created by these actions can slow clotting and loosen sutures.

For more information or an extraction consultation, contact our office.

I have been coming to Sanders Family Dental for over 12 years. I have always been fearful of the dentist since I was a child and I have had a wonderful experience here with Dr. Leslie! I started out with her father, Dr.Martin. My experience has been very comfortable for they offer sedation and Nitrous Oxide to help me feel at ease. I have had extractions, root canals, fillings and I am very pleased with Dr Leslie and her work. If you are fearful, the entire team helps put me at ease and feel relaxed. Definitely a great place to be for any dental procedures! The office is always clean, neat and up to date with all of the latest equipment.

I had a wonderful experience at Sanders Family Dental. To start I would say they are very professional and patient. So I hadn’t been to the dentist in about 15 yrs, and they made me feel so good and comfortable when coming in. The treatment was flawless to me because there weren’t any problems or issues before or after treatment and they follow up well. Just to say I will be recommending them to friends and family and of course I’m making them my personal dentist office. 👍🏾
