Tooth Extraction

 Simple Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is usually relatively as it sounds. Most extractions can be done rather quickly and with little to no pain due to the use of local anesthetic. Although you can’t feel the pain associated with the extraction you can feel the motions and efforts done to extract the tooth. After the tooth is removed, stitches are used to replace the gum into the normal position.

Though it is usually best to retain your natural teeth, in certain situations, the best option for restoring oral health is tooth extraction. We may recommend tooth extraction if no other dental treatments and procedures can heal a tooth that is:

  • Significantly decayed or damaged
  • Severely affected by periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Impacted (trapped under the gum line)
  • Largely destroyed by infection
