Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

Everybody desires keeping their teeth for life and dentists will do everything in their power to save them. Unfortunately, dental care specialists are forced to extract the tooth that cannot be restored. This can be caused by:


  1. Dental trauma.
  2. Excessive damage to the tooth due to:
    • Tooth decay
    • Periodontal disease.
  3. Dental crowding.


Whether it’s a single or several teeth extractions, the patient will receive a pain free treatment.

Teeth extracting procedures depend on the situation and the patient’s condition.


Tooth Extraction Procedures

Before pulling any tooth out, your dentist will sedate you using a local anesthetic to numb the targeted area.


Tooth extraction procedures can be surgical or non-surgical.


Non-surgical extraction is when a tooth can be extracted without the need of incision or separation. First, the tooth is loosened using a specific instrument “Elevator”, afterwards the dentist removes it using forceps.


Surgical extractions are performed by an oral surgeon (a specialized dentist trained to perform surgery). This procedure occurs if the tooth has not properly erupted or it broke at the gum line level or below. In these situations, the oral surgeon may need to create a small incision into the gum, section the tooth and/or remove some bone. In some cases, few stitches are required.
