Common Reasons for
We always make sure to do everything we can to save your natural tooth before we suggest removing it. Some of the reasons why we may suggest a tooth extraction include:
- A severely decayed tooth that can’t be repaired with a filling.
- Severe gum disease
- Severely fractured or broken tooth
Tooth extractions are relatively simple procedures. First, we’ll administer a local anesthetic to the area to make sure that it’s completely numb and you can’t feel anything during the treatment. We’ll then use an elevator to gently grip and break the tooth free of its socket, including the attachments of the tissues that are supporting the tooth. Using a pair of forceps, we’ll lift the tooth out of your mouth. Teeth with multiple, or long, curved roots will need to be sectinoed and removed in multiple pieces.
