How Extraction is Done
Local anesthetic is applied to numb the area before tooth extraction. Before extraction, the medical history, as well as dental treatment details, are collected to determine allergies or medicine complexities we will need to be aware of.
A dentist performs a simple extraction wherein an elevator, and a forceps is used to pull out a tooth. However, for complicated cases like a broken and impacted tooth, an oral surgeon surgically extracts the teeth. Both procedures are careful about infection, pain, and inflammation. Although there is a lesser adverse effect with simple extraction. Pressure is expected to be felt but not much pain. After extraction, there is some swelling and mostly a residual bleeding, but nothing to worry about as it is a normal occurrence.
