How Tooth Extractions Work
If a tooth has already fully erupted, we can perform what is called a simple extraction, in which the patient is numbed, and then the tooth is gently rocked back and forth until it slips out on its own. But, if a tooth is still located within the gums and jaw, we’ll do a surgical extraction. For this, a small incision is made, and then the tooth is removed in pieces to minimize any trauma to the nearby tissues.
