There are instances when a tooth cannot be saved, and the only solution is to remove it. Acadia Dental uses great care and extreme precision when it comes time to extract a tooth. There also won’t be any pain during your extraction. There are several reasons that call for a tooth extraction and some are as follows:
- Damaged tooth
- Infection that cannot be fixed by root canal
- Teeth blocking other teeth from growing in
Most teeth extractions are a rather simple procedure. It consists of loosening the tooth and then removal with a pair of forceps. A local anesthesia, which is done with a simple injection, is also required.
More complex situations require a surgical extraction, which could call for a general anesthesia. This scenario would be needed to extract a tooth that has a large and curved root. Pulling wisdom teeth that have not come in yet also fall under a surgical extraction.

Some kinds of denture work could take time to complete. That means some patients could be forced to go for stretches of time while missing one or teeth.
