Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

We all want to keep our teeth for life and dentists will do everything possible to save them. Unfortunately, dentists are forced to do an extraction when the tooth cannot be restored. This can be caused by:

  1. Dental trauma.
  2. Excessive damage to the tooth due to tooth decay or periodontal disease.
  3. Dental crowding or malocclusion – referred from the orthodontist.

Whether it’s a single tooth extraction or multiple extractions, it will be completely Pain Free for the patient.

The procedure in extracting teeth depends on the situation and the patient’s condition.


Tooth Removal Procedures

Before pulling the tooth, your dentist will give you an injection of a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed.


Tooth extraction can be simple or surgical.


Simple extraction is when a tooth that can be seen in the mouth is extracted, without the need of incision or tooth separation. First, the tooth is loosened with an instrument called elevator. The dentist then uses forceps to remove the tooth.


Surgical extraction, done by an oral surgeon (specialized dentist trained to perform surgery), is when a tooth in a complicated situation is extracted.


A surgical extraction is necessary for instance, if the tooth has not properly erupted in the mouth or if it broke at the gum line 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.  Sometimes, he may place few stitches.
