Types of Dental Extractions
Even though you may have a lot of teeth in your mouth, most patients are surprised to learn that there are only two types of tooth extraction performed by dentists. The first, called simple tooth extraction, is performed just as it sounds. It’s a simple procedure that does not require cutting into the patient’s gum tissue to remove a tooth. Instead, Dr. Sunen Pandya uses a specialized instrument to gently rock the tooth back and forth until it becomes free. Most patients report the procedure with local anesthetic as pain-free, quick, and simple.
Conversely, surgical tooth extraction does require cutting into the gum tissue to remove the tooth – most commonly performed on impacted wisdom teeth. The treatment is more complex than a simple tooth extraction. Still, you’ll receive complete pre-procedure and post-procedure information and care instructions, including the use of sedation dentistry if requested. Remember that our dentist in Stockton, CA at SmilePro Dental is committed to gentle dentistry during all procedures and should provide peace of mind to anyone experiencing dental anxiety or concern about dental surgery.
