- An extraction means to have a tooth removed, usually because of disease, trauma or crowding.
- If you need an extraction, we will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort.
- After the extraction, our dentists will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow.
- In most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal. Your mouth will slowly fill in the bone where the tooth root was through the formation of a blood clot.
