How Tooth Extractions Work

A tooth extraction is typically recommended if a tooth is so decayed or broken that it cannot be trusted to support a restoration. Usually, the procedure will involve numbing the patient, gently lifting the tooth using an instrument called an elevator, and then wiggling it until it slips out on its own. Thanks to this approach, most patients describe feeling practically nothing while in the chair.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

The wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that normally start to come in between the ages of 17-25. Often, they become impacted, or trapped within the gums and jawbone. This can lead to pain and several other unpleasant symptoms, and the best way to solve this is to remove them. The procedure is a minor surgery, and the recovery usually takes about a week or less.
