Dental Extractions

Smiling Mature Woman

When a tooth is broken or has significant decay, an extraction may be necessary if a tooth is not able to be saved with restorative procedures, to prevent infection to maintain oral health, or before dental implant placement.

Most extractions can be performed with the use of local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. The tooth is then gently loosened and removed. Immediately after the tooth is removed, gauze pads are placed for the patient to bite down on the tooth socket to apply pressure. Stitches are sometimes needed and may dissolve or require removal at a follow-up appointment.
