The duration of your procedure depends on the type of extraction you need, but here is what you can expect:
Before our doctor removes your tooth, you will receive a local anesthetic. This will numb the area around your tooth to reduce any discomfort you may feel. Next, our dentist will use an instrument called an elevator to loosen your tooth from the socket and forceps to remove it. Finally, the dentist will ask you to bite down on a piece of fresh gauze to control the bleeding and promote the development of a clot in the socket.
During a surgical extraction, you will receive local anesthesia and laughing gas. This will numb your tooth and put you in a state of deep relaxation. Next, our dentist will cut into your gum with a small incision. They may need to remove bone around your tooth or cut your tooth into smaller pieces before it can be extracted. Finally, the tooth will be removed, and the extraction site will be closed with a suture.
