Here at All Dental, we understand tooth extractions can sometimes be stressful but necessary procedures for your oral health. Our experienced and empathetic staff ensures that with a tooth extraction you feel comfortable and at ease so you leave our practice with a happier and healthier smile.
If a tooth is impacted (stuck beneath the gum line), we may need to create an incision in the gums in order to remove it. If a tooth is fully erupted, the extraction process is simpler; we numb the area, grip the tooth with forceps, and rock it back and forth to break the ligaments that hold it in place. Depending on the nature of your extraction, you can reasonably expect to be able to resume normal eating habits within a few days to a week.
