Tooth Extractions

A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. A dental extraction is most commonly required if one or more teeth is damaged beyond repair. The most common reasons for tooth extractions include:

  • Severe tooth decay or infection 
  • Advance gum disease 
  • During orthodontic work 
  • What to expect
    The dentist will first administer an anesthetic . During the extraction, slight pressure might be felt. 

    Immediately after the tooth extraction, a small amount of bleeding is normal and gauze are placed in the affected area.  Instructions are given for post-procedure care.
