Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the alveolar bone, making it one of the most common and routine dental procedures for addressing various dental issues. This straightforward process is often performed to alleviate pain, treat infections, or create space for orthodontic reasons.

For the First 24 Hours After Tooth Extraction
For the Second and Third Day After Extraction
Tooth extraction is necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, gum disease, overcrowding, impacted wisdom teeth, or preparation for orthodontic treatment.
Dentists use local anesthesia to numb the area, so you shouldn't feel pain during the procedure. You may experience some discomfort afterward, but it can be managed with pain medication.
The duration varies depending on the complexity of the extraction. Simple extractions typically take a few minutes, while surgical extractions may take longer.
Your dentist will provide specific instructions, but generally, you should avoid eating or drinking for a few hours before the procedure and inform your dentist about any medications you're taking.
You may experience some swelling, discomfort, and mild bleeding for a few days. Follow your dentist's post-extraction care instructions, which may include avoiding certain foods and activities.
