Simple & Surgical Tooth Extractions

While it is critical to prioritize the preservation of your natural teeth, tooth extraction may be necessary in some cases. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including trauma, oral disease, crowding, or diseases within the mouth. The most common reason for extraction is the extraction of wisdom teeth, which may necessitate more complex methods. Tooth extraction is a dental treatment in which one or more teeth are extracted from their sockets. Based on the complexity of the situation, the dentist will assess if a basic or surgical extraction is required. You may be sent to an oral surgeon for difficult extractions.


There are two types of tooth extraction: simple extraction and surgical extraction: Simple tooth extraction is typically performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth and are easy to access. The dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth, and then loosen the tooth using a special instrument called an elevator. Once the tooth is loose, the dentist will use forceps to gently pull the tooth out of its socket. Simple tooth extraction is a relatively quick and straightforward procedure, and patients can usually return to their normal activities within a day or two.


Surgical tooth extractions are more complex procedures that are required when a tooth is impacted, meaning it is partially or fully covered by the gum tissue, or when the tooth has not fully erupted. Wisdom teeth, which are the third molars at the back of the mouth, often require surgical extraction. To perform a surgical tooth extraction, the dentist or oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth. In some cases, the tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove. The dentist will use specialized tools to carefully remove the tooth from the socket.


After the tooth has been removed, the dentist will place sutures to close the incision and promote healing. Patients may experience more discomfort and swelling following a surgical tooth extraction, and it may take several days to recover fully.

In surgical tooth extractions, a surgical handpiece is used to remove bone around the tooth. This is done to gain access to the tooth and make it easier to remove.

The dentist will make a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth and bone.

Removing bone

Frequently Asked Questions

Tooth extractions are typically performed when a tooth is severely damaged or decayed and cannot be saved when there is overcrowding in the mouth, or when preparing for orthodontic treatment.

A simple tooth extraction can usually be completed in just a few minutes. A surgical extraction may take longer, depending on the complexity of the procedure.

A local anesthetic is used to numb the area, so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. You may feel some pressure or discomfort, but it shouldn’t be painful.

If you received local anesthesia during a simple tooth extraction, you should be able to drive home after the procedure. If you received general anesthesia or a surgical extraction, you may need to arrange for someone to drive you home.

Depending on the location of the extracted tooth and your dental health, you may need to replace the tooth with a dental implant, bridge, or denture to maintain the proper alignment and function of your remaining teeth. The Dentist or oral surgeon can discuss your options with you.

You should stick to soft foods that don’t require much chewing, such as soup, yogurt, and mashed potatoes. Avoid hard, crunchy, or sticky foods that may irritate the extraction site.

You should avoid brushing the extraction site for the first 24 hours to allow it to heal. After that, you can gently brush the area, being careful not to dislodge the blood clot.

Some bleeding is normal after a tooth extraction, but it should subside within a few hours. If the bleeding is excessive or persists for more than a day, contact the dentist.
