Tooth Extractions

Quick And Easy Tooth Extraction At Southland Children’s Dentistry

The Tooth Extraction Process

Expressions such as “like getting teeth pulled” show what society at large believes about the dental extraction process, but that unpleasant mental image is a very outdated one. A modern dental practice such as Southland Children’s Dentistry has all the right tools to ensure that extraction will be as comfortable as possible. It usually takes less than an hour, and with a local anesthetic and IV sedation, if necessary, the tooth can be painlessly removed.

When Extraction Is The Best Option

A tooth may require extraction for a variety of reasons. If the tooth is impacted in the gumline (particularly common with wisdom teeth), if there are serious crowding issues, or if the tooth is too damaged, rotted, or loose, we may determine that extraction is the best option.
