The Tooth Extraction Process
The tooth extraction process begins with a consultation to determine if a tooth extraction is necessary. We will take X-rays and look for signs of any additional problems that may be causing the problem. If a tooth extraction is necessary, the next step is to numb the area with a local anesthetic. After the area is fully numb, the tooth will be removed using specialized instruments. Depending on the type of extraction needed, the tooth may be removed in one piece or broken into smaller pieces.
Once the tooth is removed, we may need to place a few stitches to close the area. We will then provide you with post-operative instructions to help the healing process. This typically includes taking any prescribed medications and avoiding certain foods and activities. Most tooth extractions require a recovery time that can last for several days.
