It is a procedure where the dentist makes an incision in the gum, separates and sections the tooth, removes the whole tooth and suture. Usually this procedure is done in the clinic under local anesthesia. It might require post-surgical pain killers and rest.

Your dentist will examine the affected tooth and its surrounding gums for detailed analysis. To assess bone health and determine the extent of damage, your dentist may also take Digital X-rays sometimes.
Your dentist will also need to know about any vitamins, medications, or supplements that you are taking. After all the information has been collected, your treatment options and sedation options can be discussed in detail with you.
Our dental professionals offer sedation for tooth extractions or other procedures. For those with dental anxiety or who just want to feel more relaxed during an appointment, sedation can be a great option. The following are some of the treatments for sedation in dentistry:
Your dentist may sometimes recommend general hospital anesthesia. This is typically reserved for more complex cases such as corrective jaw surgery or facial reconstruction.
To numb the affected tooth and gum tissue, local anesthesia will be used first. Your dentist will use specialized instruments to gently remove your tooth from its socket. Your dentist may need to make small incisions in the gums to access your tooth, especially if it is severely decayed or has fallen off at its gum line. After your tooth has been removed, the socket will be cleaned and disinfected. Your dentist may place a tooth graft to prevent your jawbone from falling out. Stitches may also be used to promote healing.
After the procedure is completed, your dentist will place gauze on the site of the extraction and ask you for firm, consistent pressure to close it down. This stops bleeding and prevents clots from forming. Clotting is an important part of healing. It promotes healing and lowers the chance of dry sockets. Once the bleeding stops, you can take the gauze out. Light bleeding may persist for the first 24 hours.
