A: Tooth extractions are typically needed for severe decay, infection, overcrowding, or impacted teeth. Sometimes, removing a tooth is the best way to preserve your overall oral health.

A: We prioritize your comfort by using local anesthesia and, if needed, sedation options. You might feel pressure, but the procedure itself should be pain-free.

A: Recovery usually takes a few days. Rest, follow your dentist's post-op care instructions, and avoid strenuous activities to ensure a smooth healing process.

A: Stick to soft foods like yogurt, mashed potatoes, and smoothies. Avoid hot, spicy, or crunchy foods that might irritate the extraction site.

A: Gently rinse with salt water, avoid using straws, and follow your dentist's advice. Good oral hygiene is essential, but be gentle around the extraction site.

A: It's best to avoid smoking for at least 72 hours after an extraction. Smoking can delay healing and increase the risk of complications like dry socket.

A: A dry socket occurs when the blood clot at the extraction site dislodges. Avoid smoking, drinking through straws, and vigorous rinsing to minimize this risk.

A: Most people can return to normal activities within a day or two, but it's best to rest and avoid strenuous activity for the first 24 hours.

A: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth.

A: Ideal candidates have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist can determine if implants are right for you.

A: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene are essential for longevity.


A: The implant procedure is performed under anesthesia, so you won't feel pain during the surgery. Some discomfort is normal after the procedure but can be managed with medication.

A: The process can take several months from start to finish. This includes the initial consultation, placement of the implant, and the healing period before the crown is attached.

A: Treat your dental implants like natural teeth—brush and floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.

A: Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They blend seamlessly with your other teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable.
