Dental Extractions


Teeth extractions are recommended for teeth with severe infection, irreparable damage, or overcrowding.

The process involves numbing the area with local anesthesia, gently loosening the tooth from its socket, and carefully removing it. After extraction, the dentist may provide instructions for post-operative care to promote healing and prevent complications.

Extractions are essential to alleviate pain and maintain oral health, ensuring the overall well-being of the patient’s smile.

What to expect

First visit

The dentist numbs the area with local anesthesia and gently removes the tooth from its socket, ensuring a relatively quick and minimally uncomfortable procedure. Post-operative care instructions are then provided for optimal healing. Sometimes, sutures are required.

Second visit

Follow-up and suture removal if required.



Extraction is necessary for teeth that are nonrestorable due to a severe damage or infection.

The process begins with numbing the area with local anesthesia to ensure comfort during the procedure. The dentist then uses specialized instruments to gently loosen the tooth from its socket and carefully remove it. Once the tooth is extracted, the area may be cleaned and stitched if necessary.

Post-operative instructions, including guidelines for managing discomfort and promoting healing, are provided to the patient. Pain medications and antibiotics are prescribed if needed.


Socket preservation, also known as grafting procedure, is recommended at the time of tooth extraction to maintain the integrity of the alveolar ridge and prevent bone resorption.

By immediately filling the socket with bone graft material, the natural contours of the bone are preserved, minimizing the subsequent loss of volume.

This procedure is crucial for preparing the extraction site for future dental implants or other restorative options, ensuring stable and predictable outcomes.
