Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Before removing your tooth, local anesthetic is used to numb the area where the tooth will be removed.
If the tooth is a wisdom tooth it can be recommended to remove under general aesthetic or under sleep dentistry especially if several or all of your teeth need to be removed.
Dentists perform extractions for a number of reasons. When a tooth cannot be repaired due to extensive damage from tooth decay or cracked from injury, this procedure is performed. When no other solutions are viable the dentist will opt for taking the tooth out with an extraction.
