The procedure will either involve surgical or simple extraction based on the condition of the tooth.
You will be given a shot of a local anesthetic, which will numb the whole area. The procedure will be pain-free but yes you might feel a bit of pressure. The dentist employs a tool called an elevator to ease the area and then use forceps to extract it.
This procedure might involve both intravenous anesthesia and local anesthesia, the first one helps the patients to calm down. General anesthesia can be used depending on the specific health conditions.
The dentist will make an incision on the gums. They might need to cut your tooth or remove jaw bone before extraction.
