Extraction

Things to know before an extraction

an extraction is normally needed if you have oral disease requiring removal of a tooth, or if the root of a tooth is loose and needs to be extracted. This procedure may require numbing or sedation.

After your oral exam, our staff will determine if an extraction procedure is needed. Then you will be sedated or numbed. When you wake up, your tooth will be extracted, and our dentist will discuss getting an implant or a bridge with you.

Let the dentist know if you are having any pain or discomfort before the procedure. Also express any anxiety you may have regarding the procedure. You should tell your dentist if you have any issues or concerns with the treated area in the weeks following the procedure.
