A tooth extraction doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s the best course of treatment, but thanks to our caring team, we’ll be able to handle it with a soft touch.
We’ll start by thoroughly numbing the area with a local anesthetic. We’ll also offer you a couple of sedation options to help you relax even more if you need it (don’t be afraid to ask, we won’t judge!). Then, your doctor will slowly rock the tooth back and forth. We never literally pull teeth straight out…that’s a ticket to pain for both the patient AND doctor! We’ll slowly move it so that it basically slips out on its own. Most of the time, our patient’s don’t actually notice when the tooth comes out.
Hopefully this helped you understand tooth extractions a little better. If you still have questions, we’re more than happy to answer them, so please feel free to contact us today.
