Extractions at Mulkins Main Dental
Dental Extractions in Stittsville
There are times when the only choice is to remove the tooth. This is called an extraction or a pulled tooth. We are careful to use safe techniques and are acutely aware of the comfort of each of our patients.
If it is not possible to save the tooth, it must be removed from its socket in the bone. After x-rays and other examination procedures, the dentist will determine the best plan to remove the tooth. During the procedure, most patients feel some pressure in the mouth, but very little discomfort.
After the extraction, we provide detailed instructions, what to expect, and what to be aware of. There may be some temporary discomfort, but generally speaking, the healing process is uncomplicated.

This is when your dentist administers a local anesthetic; loosens and removes the visible tooth.
If a tooth is broken at the gum line or has not yet emerged, it will require a more complex removal. Although some general dentists perform this operation, generally it is handled by a surgical dentist. Sometimes a local anesthetic is used but more frequently the patient will be given a general anesthetic. General anesthesia is recommended for children or adults with specific medical or behavioral conditions to make the procedure more comfortable.
After Extraction Options
After the tooth has been removed, an implant is the best choice. Without an implant, the bone will begin to recess and you can experience more problems over time.
