Tooth Extraction in Milwaukee, WI

At Sladky Family Dental, we prioritize your comfort during tooth extractions. These procedures involve removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. While our aim is to preserve your natural teeth, extractions become necessary for reasons such as severe decay, crowding, impacted wisdom teeth, or advanced gum disease.

We understand dental anxiety, which is why we offer sedation options:

  1. Oral Sedation: Take a prescribed sedative before your appointment for deep relaxation.
  2. Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): Inhaled gas induces relaxation and reduces anxiety.

Your comfort matters. Schedule a consultation with us today to learn more about our tooth extraction services and experience a stress-free dental visit.

  • How do I prevent dry socket after tooth extraction?

    When you have a tooth extracted, a blood clot develops shortly after the surgery, which is your body beginning the healing process. If this blood clot becomes dislodged before your mouth has fully healed it can cause pain, this is called dry socket.

    Six tips for avoiding dry socket are:

    1. Avoid straws or anything that creates a suction or large movement of air.
    2. Avoid smoking tobacco as the fast inhalation can dislodge your blood clot, and the chemicals may prevent healing or cause an infection.
    3. Eat soft foods only, like applesauce, yogurt, and mashed potatoes, for the first one or two days.
    4. Inquire about any medicines you’re taking to ensure they don’t interact with the healing process.
    5. Use proper oral hygiene to keep your mouth clean, and consider an antibacterial mouthwash.
    6. Follow your doctor’s instructions on proper oral care to improve recovery time.
  • When and why are wisdom teeth removed?

    The last set of teeth to develop are called wisdom teeth. They emerge at the back of the mouth usually during late adolescence or early adulthood. Due to their slanted growth angle, they tend to bump into other teeth and cause crowding. Additionally, there is usually not enough space for these teeth, which is why around 85% of adults have them removed.

  • What causes the need for tooth extraction?

    Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. This is usually done when a tooth has been damaged by decay or trauma and cannot be repaired by a filling or crown. However, there are other reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, such as the presence of extra teeth that are blocking others, baby teeth that haven’t fallen out in time for permanent teeth to come in, orthodontic treatment, or medical reasons.
