How Tooth Extractions Work

If a portion of your tooth that needs to be removed is above the gumline, Dr. Salibian can conduct a simple extraction. First, he’ll inject a local anesthetic to numb the area so you won’t feel any pain. Using an instrument called an elevator, we will loosen the tooth until it breaks free from the socket. Then, we’ll use forceps to gently remove the tooth from your mouth.
