Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone.
The dentist will examine your tooth visually and by X-ray to determine if the tooth needs to be extracted.
Types of extractions
The dentist will go over the treatment procedure to inform you of what to expect. With the use of local anesthetics you should not feel any pain, if you do let the dentist know immediately.
Your dentist will give you instructions for care after the extraction.
