Other reasons for tooth extractions include the impaction of wisdom teeth or the need to create space for orthodontic devices.Tooth pain can occur with warning and if your teeth is beyond saving then Laurel Dental Associates can provide emergency dental services to help relieve your pain. Tooth extraction is a last resort and Dr. Rezaiyan will determine all options available before performing a tooth extraction.
You begin the tooth extraction procedure by receiving local or general anesthetic to the area where the tooth is being removed. If more multiple teeth are being removed than a sleep inducing general anesthetic may be used. After the procedure, patients may need stitches to help the healing process.
