What to Expect During a Tooth Extraction

The tooth extraction process will vary depending on the condition of the tooth being removed. If the tooth is visible and in one piece, the procedure will be relatively simple—the dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the surrounding area, loosen the tooth, and then remove it.

However, if the tooth to be removed is broken or impacted, the extraction process will be a bit more complicated. For example, in some cases, the dentist may need to divide the tooth into smaller pieces and/or remove a portion of the bone surrounding the tooth. Your dentist can explain which approach is best suited to your specific circumstances.
