Remove Painful or Broken Teeth with Extractions

Teeth can sometimes become damaged or decayed to the point they need to be removed through extractions. This is a procedure in which the patient is given local anesthesia in order to numb the entire area around the tooth that is to be extracted. Anesthesia is given in the form of a shot as close to the base of the tooth as possible, as well as in other sections of the mouth. When the patient is completely numb, the tooth is extracted. In some cases, mild dental surgery is necessary to remove broken shards of the tooth from the gum or jaw. Extractions can be completed in one visit, but have to be scheduled ahead of time in order to prepare for the procedure.
