Keeping a tooth that is impacted or severely damaged might be causing you more harm than good.
If so, Drs. Amy Creech-Gionis and her associates can perform a tooth extraction to restore your health and comfort.
Why consider treatment at our dental offices in Westchase or Carrollwood, FL?
Is Tooth Extraction Painful?
The team at Tampa Dental Wellness cares about your comfort and strives to make treatment as painless as possible. In addition to local anesthesia, our dentists can provide sedation to put you at ease before your procedure. We offer oral sedatives, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation to induce varying levels of relaxation. Most patients find their extractions to be virtually painless, and some don't remember the procedure at all.
The Tooth Extraction Process

Day of Procedure
Dr. Creech and the entire dental wellness team at Westchase has your best interests at heart! They are amazing at what they do and amazing people. I would recommend them to anyone from a cleaning to major issues!!View on Google
I can’t say enough positive words about this practice! From the welcome call I got yesterday to the first class care I received today at my New Patient visit, I felt special and valued! They have the newest technology and I learned so much about my oral care! Michelle was my hygienist and is by far the most thorough, gentle person I have ever encountered! I had an exam and a cleaning and left with a care plan for future care. The staff in the office and the dentist were all fabulous. I’ve avoided going to the dentist because I’ve had very negative experiences with South Tampa dentists but now I found a new dental home!View on Google
Important Recovery Instructions
Once you are home, change out the gauze and gently bite down. This will help a blood clot to form and protect the incision from bacteria. Repeat these steps every 20 minutes until bleeding stops.
For the first few days, consume a soft foods diet and avoid chewing on the side of the extracted tooth.
Applying an ice pack to your outer jaw every 20 to 30 minutes can reduce swelling. Over-the-counter pain medications can also help with side effects like pain, swelling, and soreness.
Make sure to attend your follow-up appointments so our dentists can remove your sutures and check on your recovery.
