Simple tooth extraction

What is the Simple tooth extraction?

Simple tooth extraction is performed on tooth that is visible in the mouth, usually under local anaesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed.

What is the procedure?

Typically the tooth is lifted using an elevator, and using dental forceps, rocked back and forth until the periodontal ligament has been sufficiently broken and the supporting alveolar bone has been adequately widened to make the tooth loose enough to remove.

Usually, when tooth is removed with forceps, slow, steady pressure is applied with controlled force.

After the tooth is removed, you may need stitches. You can gently bite down on a cotton gauze pad placed over the wound to help stop the bleeding.

What kind of result can you expect?
