Tooth Extractions

Effective Tooth Extractions for Dental Relief

Tooth extractions can be categorized into two main types. Simple extractions are performed on visible teeth, where the dentist uses tools to loosen and remove the tooth. Local anesthesia is typically used. Surgical extractions are more complex, involving the removal of inaccessible or impacted teeth. This may require incisions and the extraction of bone. Local or general anesthesia is used. The type of extraction depends on factors like tooth position, condition, and the patient’s oral health, determined by the dentist or oral surgeon.
