The removal of a tooth is not something that is done when there are other viable options. It is the last resort when a tooth is either weakened, damaged, or infected and there is no reasonable expectation of saving it. Typically, the circumstances that lead to taking out a tooth are ones in which you are in pain, possibly severe pain. There may also be swelling and other symptoms that you’re dealing with. As a result, it’s important to get immediate attention, which is what you can count on here at Urgent Care Dental and our Kingsbridge tooth extraction.
Dental emergencies don’t tend to occur very often on a 9 to 5 weekday schedule, do they? Fortunately, our schedule is quite different than that of the typical dental office. We are here from 4pm to 9pm on weekdays, and from 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. So if you need our Kingsbridge tooth extraction, you won’t have to suffer until the next day when your regular dentist re-opens. Let us assure you that you will benefit from skilled, gentle care here. Our Kingsbridge tooth extraction is performed under local anesthesia. The tooth and the area around it will be numbed prior to the procedure. Once the tooth comes out, you’ll be given guidelines to follow for when you get home. Our goal is to ensure that your mouth heals properly and that there are no complications. You should eat only soft foods, avoid smoking, rinse frequently with warm water, and use over-the-counter pain relief medication as needed. If there is any residual swelling, be sure to hold an ice pack on the outside of your face. After 24 hours, you should be able to go back to normal.
When you have an urgent need, come in and see us right away. We don’t make appointments. Patients are seen in the order they arrive.
