Having a tooth pulled sounds intimidating, but extractions today are less painful than ever before. Dr. Dornan will make every effort to keep your natural tooth before recommending extraction.
- The area around your tooth is numbed with local anesthetic.
- The tooth is loosened, then removed.
- Gauze will be packed onto the site.
- An antibiotic may be prescribed if infection is present.
