The complete removal of a tooth, from crown to root, is called a tooth extraction. It is carried out by a trained dentist in a dental practice, with the patient under local anesthesia. This allows us to numb the oral tissues, such as the tooth, surrounding gums, and underlying jawbone, keeping you from enduring pain and discomfort.
A dental extraction would be required during the following circumstances:
We will thoroughly screen the teeth to understand the severity of the condition. Your candidacy for the extraction will be determined from the observations made. We will administer local anesthesia near the tooth to be extracted, which helps to numb it and the surrounding tissues. Once the sedative takes effect, we will grip the tooth using forceps. It will be shaken to loosen it from the socket, after which we will extract it in one firm motion. In case the extraction is complicated, such as an impacted tooth, we may have to section the tooth into smaller fragments and remove them carefully.
After the extraction is completed, a clean piece of gauze will be placed near the extraction site. This will reduce bleeding and facilitate the formation of a clot. Suitable medication will be prescribed to enable optimum healing of the wound.
