Extractions in Laveen

Are tooth extractions painful?

Modern dentistry is never painful, even tooth extractions. The right dentist will always do everything they can to save your natural teeth. Occasionally, it may be better or necessary to remove one. With sedation options, local anesthesia and a gentle hand, a tooth extraction can be a simple procedure that gets you back to exceptional oral health.

Local Anesthesia

Your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the extraction site and the nerves that surround it, ensuring that you feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Sedation Options

We may recommend, or you may request, Minimal Sedation (Anxiolysis) for your tooth extraction. Sedation is helpful for anxious patients and can make you more comfortable during longer extraction procedures.

Loosening & Removing The Tooth

Your dentist will gently loosen the tooth in the socket using special dental tools. When it has been loosened sufficiently, they will pull it out with a pair of dental forceps.

Cleaning & Necessary Sutures

When the tooth has been removed, your dentist will clean and disinfect the area again, and suture the extraction site to ensure it heals properly.
