about Tooth Extraction

Is a tooth extraction a simple procedure?
There are two types of tooth extraction. A simple extraction can be carried out if the tooth can be seen above the gum line. A more complicated procedure is a surgical extraction. This occurs when the tooth is broken or hasn’t come through the gum.
How is the tooth extracted?
With a simple extraction, your doctor makes the tooth loose by using a special instrument called an elevator. Once it has been loosened sufficiently, the dentist will then pull the tooth out with dental forceps. A surgical extraction is carried out for teeth still under the gum, and your dentist will make an incision in your gum along the gum line and then extract the tooth beneath it. Sometimes these teeth have to be sectioned into pieces.
Why do wisdom teeth often need extracting?
Wisdom teeth don’t typically appear until after all or most of an adult’s teeth have come through, and sometimes there isn’t enough room for any more teeth. This impedes the growth of the wisdom teeth, and they can become impacted.

Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected or even damage the teeth next to them. If this happens, then our dentists may recommend that the wisdom teeth are removed. This is often carried out by a surgical procedure because wisdom teeth are often hard to access or under the gum line.
Does it hurt to get your teeth removed?
The teeth surgery procedure itself is painless primarily. You’ll be relaxed, comfortable, and even unaware of the passing time with sedation dentistry. In addition to sedation, local anesthetics numb the mouth to anything that could be painful.

Most people experience some soreness during the healing period following surgery. However, Dr. Kohler uses recent advances in medicine and state-of-the-art technology to allow patients to have their teeth removed in a manner that promotes rapid healing and minimal post-operative discomfort.

We are one of only a handful of centers in the area with a 3-D CT scanner in-house, allowing us to take 3-D imaging on patients to verify nerve positions, ensuring safety and minimal trauma.
