Tooth Extractions

A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. A dental extraction is most commonly required if one of your teeth is damaged beyond practical repair. The most common reasons for tooth extractions include:

Severe tooth decay or infection may make it impossible or too costly to repair a tooth
Advanced gum disease may required a tooth to be pulled so it doesn’t affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of your mouth
A tooth may be extracted if it is blocking other teeth from coming in
During orthodontic work, teeth may need to be extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place
Wisdom teeth are often extracted either before or after they come in


What to expect
Your dentist will first administer anesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort. Various sedation options are also available, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation. During the extraction, you will feel the pressure of the tooth being removed, but will not feel any pain. Typically, the dentist is able to remove your tooth within a matter of minutes.
