Tooth extraction is necessary sometimes for a non-restorable tooth, an impacted tooth, and in preparation for orthodontics/braces. At HSDH we perform tooth extraction and make every effort to help ensure your comfort during and after the procedure through appropriate use of anesthetics and pain medications.
Teeth can be removed simply or surgically. Dentists perform a simple extraction when they can see the tooth and it is removed after applying a pain reducing medication. A surgical extraction is performed when the tooth is broken down or not exposed. After applying a pain reducing medication an incision is made into the gum or the tooth is divided. The tooth is then removed in sections or intact.
