Dental Extraction

The dental extraction of a tooth can often stop pain that you may have been suffering with. Although we would rather address and repair the problem with your tooth, a dental extraction will often give you the comfort and ability to eat again!  Extraction, very simply, means the removal of the tooth from the oral cavity.  Dental extractions can take many forms based on the location and anatomy of the tooth.  At times, teeth can be fractured at the gumline.  This type of dental extraction can take more time to complete as bone may need to be removed to remove the tooth.  this type of extraction may be described as a Surgical Extraction.  If a tooth has a severe gum problem and is visibly loose, but intact, the tooth will be removed with little effort.  This type of extraction is called a simple extraction.

Dr. Miller is a general dentist. Extraction procedures can be simple or very challenging to a general dentist.  Many times an oral surgeon many be enlisted to extract the tooth if it looks to be difficult to the general dentist.  Oral surgeons have had many years of extensive training to take out the most difficult teeth.  Patients may just have local anesthetic or may be sedated to allow the surgeon to adequately extract the tooth safely and efficiently.  Sometimes having sedation is easier on the patient and allows for a more pleasant experience.  If one is sedated they will need to have someone with them to take them home after the procedure.
