What Does the Tooth Extraction Process Involve?
The answer to this question will vary from one patient to another depending on the condition of their teeth and various other factors. With that said, during tooth extractions, we typically:
- Administer a local anesthetic and any necessary sedation (we offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation)
- Loosen the tooth in question
- Pull the tooth out of its socket
- Clean and disinfect the empty socket
- Place any necessary stitches
In some cases—such as when a tooth is impacted or broken at the gum line—our tooth extraction dentist may need to make small incisions into the patient’s gums in order to remove their tooth.
