Extractions

An extraction or sometimes referred to as “pulling a tooth” may be done by a general dentist, periodontist, or oral surgeon. Either local or general anesthetic may be used. A tooth may be extracted for a variety of reason such as infection, severe decay, fracture, orthodontic treatment, or prevention of future dental problem (i.e. removal of wisdom teeth). Teeth can be extracted that are both above and below the gumline.
