Tooth Extractions

Extractions are another very common form of oral surgery. This can treat a number of issues—from impacted teeth, to overcrowding, to severely damaged or decayed teeth. This procedure is also common with wisdom teeth. After carefully monitoring your wisdom teeth, your dentist may decide to extract them as they otherwise often cause many issues with the surrounding teeth.

When having a tooth extracted, there are a few things you can typically expect from the procedure:

  1. First, your dentist will take a x-rays to look at all of your teeth and determine if extraction is the best available option.
  2. Then, your dentist will administer an anesthetic to numb the area. The strength or type of anesthetic may vary, depending on the location of the tooth that requires extraction.
  3. In a simple extraction (when the tooth is visible), a dentist will loosen the necessary tooth with a device called an elevator, and then use forceps to extract the tooth.
  4. When the tooth being extracted is still hidden within the gums, an oral surgeon will need to make an incision in the gums. Then, they will either need to remove some of the bone that surrounds the tooth or cut the tooth in half to extract it.

Depending on the depth and location of the tooth within your gums, the pain you experience after the surgery may vary. Typically, though, the post-operative pain is mild and can be easily treated with over-the-counter pain medication.

We want the whole family to feel comfortable when you enter our Brooklyn office.
