At New Haven Dental Group in Branford, we are usually able to repair any teeth that have developed decay or damage. In some cases, though, a tooth can be so far gone that the only viable option is to extract it. When tooth extractions in Branford are necessary, our team takes every step possible to keep a patient comfortable throughout their procedure, including answering any and all questions beforehand and using plenty of anesthetic. We can also discuss tooth replacement when appropriate.
After an extraction, it is normal for a patient to experience some soreness around the treatment site for a few days. However, they can expect to resume their normal diet and daily activities within a week.
