An extraction means to have a tooth removed, usually because of disease, trauma or crowding.
If you need an extraction, your dentist will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, your dentist will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow. In most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill in the bone where the tooth root was through the formation of a blood clot.
For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently. If you experience swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag and call your dentist right away. Ask your dentist about pain medication. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don't clean the teeth next to where the tooth was removed.
Remember, when having an extraction, today's modern procedures and follow up care (as recommended by your dentist) are there for your benefit and comfort.

Doctor Fairy- that's how my kids call her. My 6 year old son had fallen down and hit his teeth to the ground which got infected. Dr.Navdeep took very good care of him. He was nervous in the beginning but doctor's warmth , professionalism and smile turned his experience into a wonderful one. Kudos and keep up the good work.Dr. Navdeep really knows how to deal with kids as well as big kids :)Verified Patient
Wonderful dentist and a great atmosphere! I strongly recommend to friends and familyVerified Patient
I am very grateful for Friendly Simles Dental because their level of integrity, care, professionalism and perfection are factors that stand out by far. They are incredibly thorough, they seek out the best in their equipment and technology and they are also incredibly hygienic. I had a couple major procedures done with them, and I left very refreshed at their level of professionalism and transparency (about the procedures), and was glad I went with them. You leave with the knowledge that they did their best to make sure you had the best possible experience and outcome.Verified Patient
Dr. Aulakh has been my dentist for over five years and has handled everything from my Invisalign treatment to routine cleanings and fillings. I have yet to find a dentist who is as caring and professional as she is. I highly recommend her and the services that she offers at her office here!Verified Patient
I had an excellent time! I'd previously had an issue with a cancelled appointment and this team made up for it in spades: very accommodating, kind, and efficient. High recommend!Verified Patient
Excellent visit. Staff very nice and Dr very gentle. She took her time to explain what needed to be done. Did not over sell and judge me for not flossing. I will refer my friends and family.Verified Patient
I've never had such a comfortable and relaxed cavity/drilling/filling experience. The finesse exercised by Dr. Aulakh in sealing 4 teeth, and freeing loose my last wisdom tooth from thick overlaying gum was absolutely amazing.Verified Patient
