Dental Extractions

from wisdom teeth to decay


Dental extractions are required when a tooth is severely decayed, periodontal disease has lead to infected teeth, orthodontic reasons, or to prevent future infections or complications. When a tooth presents with one of the above problems it is best to extract the tooth before it worsens.


What to expect

  • Depending on whether there is an infection around the tooth that will be extracted you may receive antibiotics prior to the procedure to reduce swelling.

  • Some patients chose to have the procedure done using sedation dentistry, which gives them less awareness of the surgery.

  • During the extraction procedure you will receive local anesthetic (freezing) around the area of the tooth of teeth. You may still feel numb for a couple of hours after the procedure.

  • You may also receive stitches after the tooth has been extracted.

  • It is vital to follow all of the post-op instructions (you can find them in the patient information section)
