Why is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Tooth extraction might be recommended due to:
- Severe tooth decay or infection
- Impacted teeth, especially wisdom teeth
- Preparation for orthodontic treatments
The Extraction Process
Our dentists begin with a thorough examination, often using dental X-rays to assess the tooth's position and condition. Local anesthesia ensures a pain-free experience. For more complex cases, like impacted wisdom teeth, a minor surgical procedure might be required.

- Avoiding strenuous activities for a few days
- Eating soft foods
- Avoiding smoking or using straws to prevent dry socket
