Why Choose The Dental People for Tooth Extractions?
What is the Tooth Extraction Process?
When teeth are 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 the gum tissue to access it. Sometimes, it is more effective to break the tooth into smaller pieces and remove them that way. Before starting treatment, you’ll be given a local anesthetic to remove any discomfort and sedation if requested. Then, we’ll use an elevator to gently remove the tooth from the periodontal ligament, holding it in place. Once broken, dental forceps will be used to grab and remove the tooth.
