What happens during a tooth extraction?
Each tooth extraction procedure depends on the location of the tooth, the reason the tooth is being removed and the overall health of the tooth.
During a standard tooth extraction, the gum will be numbed and the tooth will be pulled using special dental tools that are designed to grip the tooth.
If a tooth is impacted or broken, one of our dentists may need to make an incision in to the gum to extract the tooth. The incision will then be closed using sutures.
Will a tooth extraction be painful?
