What is tooth extraction?


Tooth Extraction is the removal of one or more teeth completely. It is a procedure that is done by a dentist or surgeon. If your tooth has been damaged caused by decay or it being broken, the dentist will try to fix it. However, if there is no chance for it to survive – that is when it needs to be extracted or removed.

Here are some reasons why we do extraction:

  • Infections
  • Cavities
  • Disease on your gums
  • Problems on your wisdom teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • And baby teeth that are not falling out
toothache reasons


Before your dentist removed your tooth, here at Finesse Dental we thoroughly review your dental history and take some x-rays that would help our dentist to approximate degree of difficulty of your tooth. Also, we do this for us to know if you need to be seen and referred to an oral surgeon.

What is involved in tooth extraction?

Local anesthetics which Finesse Dental used to some cases that makes some absence on the awareness of pain.

Is local anesthetics necessary?

It is not compulsory, although depending on how complicated the case may be.
