Tooth extraction

Sometimes, people need to have their tooth removed, which is usually done by a dentist or an oral surgeon. There can be various reasons why you might be suggested to get your tooth pulled.

What happens during a tooth extraction?


If you need a tooth to be removed, our dentist at Delacombe Family Dental will usually give you a local anaesthetic to numb your mouth so you don’t feel any pain. The dentist will then use special tools to loosen the tooth in the gum. Once the tooth to be removed is loose, the dentist will remove it with forceps. In case if your tooth extraction is complicated, we may refer you to a specialist oral surgeon.
