What is tooth extraction?
Simple extractions are executed in-office with a local anesthetic. During the procedure, your dentist, Dr. Fenton, will move the tooth back and forth in the socket until loose and is able to be pulled. For more complicated tooth removal, surgery may be necessary.
At Laguna Vista Dental, we are fully capable of performing simple and difficult extractions. With complicated cases, an incision into the soft tissue is essential. In doing so, your dentist will have greater access to the non-erupted or broken tooth. This method of removal isn’t required for all extractions, only for those not easily accessible.
One reason to have a tooth removed is to prevent further damage and decay. An impacted tooth may need pulling because an adult tooth is unable to erupt correctly. For those that have experienced trauma, an extraction can prepare the area for healing. It may also serve to prepare a patient for tooth replacements.
