For a basic tooth extraction, the process is simple. Dr. Antoun will numb the area, loosen the tooth in the socket, and pull it out with a pair of forceps. Then, the now-empty socket will be cleaned and sutured shut. This usually takes about 5 minutes per tooth.
For teeth that are impacted, a surgical extraction may be necessary. After numbing your mouth, Dr. Antoun will create an incision in your gums. Through this opening, the tooth will be extracted, and then the area will be cleaned and sutured shut.
