A dental extraction is a procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. This may be necessary if the tooth is damaged beyond practical repair. There are several reasons for tooth extraction, but some of the most common are severe tooth decay and infection, gum disease, and if a tooth is blocking another tooth from coming in.
When a tooth is extracted your dentist at Bird Dental Studio will administer an anesthetic to numb and reduce discomfort in that area. Throughout the tooth removal, you will feel slight pressure that will not cause pain or discomfort. This procedure is typically administered in a matter of minutes.
