What is the Tooth Extraction Process?

When teeth are clearly visible, it’s much easier for our dentists to remove them from the jaw. However, if the tooth is trapped underneath gum tissue or another tooth, an incision will be made inside of the gum tissue to access it. In some cases, it is more effective to break the tooth into smaller pieces and remove them that way. Prior to starting treatment, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to remove any discomfort as well as sedation if requested. Then, we’ll use an elevator to gently remove the tooth from the periodontal ligament holding it in place. Once broken, a pair of dental forceps will be used to grab and remove the tooth.
