Tooth Extractions Plano & Dallas-Fort Worth

Good oral hygiene is a must.  The loss of a single tooth can have a major impact on overall oral health and appearance. Although dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, there are still some occasions when a tooth needs to be extracted.

A tooth may need to be extracted if the following occurs:

  • Severe decay
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Infection or abscess
  • Orthodontic correction
  • Malpositioned teeth
  • Fractured teeth or roots
  • Impacted teeth

The dentist may suggest an extraction after careful examination and treatment—usually taking x-rays to understand the shape and position of the tooth and surrounding bone before extracting the tooth. Based on the degree of difficulty, a dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon.

A certain amount of discomfort is to be expected following an extraction, but it can be minimized with ibuprofen or acetaminophen and ice packs applied to the face for 15 minutes at a time. Discomfort should lessen within three days to two weeks.

If you experience prolonged or severe pain, swelling, prolonged bleeding or fever, call our office immediately.

When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

The Tooth Extraction Process at Reyes & Kososki Dental

Your comfort and well-being are paramount during any procedure at Reyes & Kososki Dental. Here’s what you can expect during a tooth extraction:

  • Initial Consultation: We start with a comprehensive evaluation of your dental health to assess the need for an extraction.
  • X-Rays: If necessary, detailed x-rays are taken to plan the best approach for removing the tooth.
  • Anesthesia: We provide local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience. Sedation options are also available for those with dental anxiety.
  • The Procedure: Our dentists use precise techniques to remove the tooth, focusing on minimizing tissue disruption for a smoother recovery.

Aftercare and Recovery

Post-procedure care is crucial for a swift and smooth recovery. At Reyes & Kososki Dental, we provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you heal quickly and comfortably. These instructions typically include:

  • Bite gently on a gauze pad to reduce bleeding and allow a clot to form.
  • Avoid rinsing, sucking actions, and hot liquids for the first 24 hours.
  • Apply ice to the cheek to reduce swelling as needed.
  • Follow a soft-food diet for a few days post-extraction.
  • Take any prescribed medications as directed to manage discomfort and prevent infection.

Dr. Reyes has been such an amazing dentist for my family. We are a family of 5 and they made sure each of us were tended to with the upmost care. My kids, ages 7, 6, & 3 all felt safe and loved by the staff. Dr. Reyes made us all feel comfortable throughout our visit. We left with all smiles! The kids have been encouraged to keep their teeth clean! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our new dentist family! Thank you for all you do for us! 10/10 recommended!

Highly recommend Reyes-Kososki Dental! Their staff was extremely friendly and accomodating to both my son and I. Their appointments were very timely, I wasn't left in the waiting room like most other dentists. You can tell that Dr. Rebecca Reyes cares about her patients and takes the time to explain everything and makes sure that everybody is comfortable with the work being performed. Billing was transparent and affordable. This was my first experience with Dr. Reyes and I was very, very impressed. I will by telling my family and friends.

What can I say? A breath of fresh air for sure! I haven't visited a dental office in over 10 years, I know, Yikes! Dr. Reyes, Monica, & Kendal All did a fantastic job, from the thorough cleaning to the 3D scanning technology, the precise and honest feedback, & all the way back to warm hospitality from the moment I walked in. This experience was 5 stars through and through! Thank you, Kososki Dental for making today an experience I'll be sure to come back for again and again! #Brush&Floss

Who likes going to the dentist? Not me! But since I like my teeth and want to keep them in my mouth, I'm so thankful for Dr Kososki and Dr Reyes and their team. They've seen me through numerous cavities and given many helpful suggestions over the years as I've dealt with jaw issues and teeth grinding - often that have saved me money! And while a cleaning is still a cleaning, I greatly appreciate their gentleness and willingness to listen. And having a dentist I can trust!

If I could give 10 stars I would! Dr. Reyes and her team were AMAZING - compassionate, empathetic, patient, asked questions and made sure my daughter who HATES the dentist felt comfortable before her deep cleaning procedure. She had not seen a dentist in almost 8 years due to her high levels of anxiety after having a bad experience. I prepped Dr. Reyes' and her team and they were so sweet, patient, kind and empathetic to her bad experience. HIGHLY recommend coming to see Dr. Reyes and her team if you or your children have any anxiety about dental procedures. Dr. Reyes is hands down the sweetest, kindest person inside and out, truly cares about her patients, her passion and knowledge exceeded my expectations and I will ALWAYS refer her to my friends and family!
