Tooth Extractions


Woman with dentist learning about the tooth extraction process in Portland, OR.A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.

Why are teeth extracted?

•  Severely decayed teeth.
•  Periodontal disease leading to bone loss.
•  Fractured in such a way that it is impossible or impractical to repair.
•  Badly positioned (impacted wisdom teeth).
•  Non-functional or poorly functional teeth that should be replaced with a bridge, denture or dental implant.

Extractions are generally classified as either non-surgical (also known as "simple") or surgical (involving cutting through the gums and tooth). A simple procedure can quickly become a surgical procedure if the tooth fractures or refuses to loosen under pressure. We perform these procedures only after making the extraction site(s) profoundly numb.

Tooth Extraction Post-Operative Instructions


Following tooth extraction you may experience bleeding, oozing, soreness or moderate to severe pain.

Bleeding should stop by 8–12 hours following the extraction. If you experience significant bleeding past this time please call our office at (503) 446-2957 immediately. Oozing of pink fluid for 1–2 days is normal.

Discomfort following the tooth extraction is best managed with a mild analgesic like Tylenol, Advil or Aleve. If you experience severe pain that lasts more than 2–3 days after your extraction please call our office.

Healing should be as smooth as possible following tooth extraction. It is important to not disturb the extraction site. Remember to eat a soft diet and avoid vigorous rinsing for 24 hours following the extraction.

After 24 hours rinse with strong warm salt water for 1 minute a couple of times daily for 3–4 days. This will reduce the number of bacteria in your mouth and will promote better healing.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call us at (503) 446-2957.
