Tooth Extractions – West Chester, OH

A tooth extraction can be necessary for a variety of reasons. They are commonly performed in cases where a baby tooth is reluctant to fall out on its own, a severely broken down and non-restorable tooth is present, or a wisdom tooth is poorly positioned and unable to fully erupt into place.

Extraction Process

A tooth can become so decayed or damaged that it cannot be saved that extracting it is the solution.

Simple extractions involve surgery to remove the tooth. Using a specially designed instrument, your doctor will gently and gradually ease the tooth out of the socket.

Once the tooth is removed, the doctor will then clean the area to facilitate the healing process. During this time you will be fitted for a temporary tooth.

When the area has healed, your doctor will discuss treatment options to permanently replace the tooth.
