Extraction of a Single Tooth

To make the entire extraction procedure comfortable for you, the first thing your Houston dentist will do is make sure you're thoroughly numb.

Your dentist will use instruments called elevators and forceps to remove the tooth. Elevators are placed next to the tooth and are used to gently roll the tooth out of the socket. Forceps are used to more firmly grip the tooth.

Though you'll continue to feel pressure when a tooth is removed, you shouldn't feel any pain. If you do, let your Houston dentist know. He will stop and give you more anesthetic.

Nobody enjoys having a tooth removed, but using modern dental techniques, it should be a comfortable procedure.
