Tooth Extractions


Tooth Extractions


Dental (tooth) extractions involve the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone, due to various circumstances

If your tooth is broken or compromised by infection or decay, our priority will always save your tooth by other means, including root canal therapy, and the placement of dental crowns.

Sometimes, there is too much damage done to the tooth, making other options impractical, or too expensive, thus making extraction necessary.

The treatment of advanced gum disease may also require that a tooth to be extracted so that it doesn’t affect the healthy surrounding tissue and bone structures of your mouth. Occasionally, while having orthodontic work done, teeth may need to be extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place or are blocked from coming in..

Having a tooth extracted is typically a quick and simple process. First, an anesthetic is administered to numb the area and minimize any discomfort. During the extraction, you will feel some pressure while the tooth is being removed but not any pain. Most often, your tooth will be removed within minutes. Immediately after the tooth extraction, a small amount of bleeding is normal and a patch of gauze will be placed in the affected area. The area may bleed minimally for the next hour or so, and taper off after that. Follow the instructions provided on this site about how often to change the gauze, and what other post-procedure steps to follow.
