Your dentist will make the decision of the health of your tooth and its restorability.
Extractions may be done the same day as your first appointment in some cases. You will be given a local anesthetic to prevent pain during the procedure, and you may be prescribed medication to manage your pain afterward.
You will be instructed to keep the surgical area clean and avoid certain foods. It is important to take all antibiotic prescriptions. To avoid a dry socket, you should avoid smoking, rinsing, and drinking through a straw. There may be sutures placed over the socket, in which case you may need to return to the office to have them removed.
