Simple & Surgical Tooth Extractions
At our Katy dental office, we are proud to offer both simple tooth extractions and surgical tooth extractions depending on your situation. Simple extractions are procedures done on teeth that have limited damage and are more visible in the mouth. The tooth extraction process involves using a set of forceps to gently loosen and remove the tooth. In more severe cases, a surgical extraction may be necessary which requires an incision to completely remove the tooth; this is often the case with wisdom teeth removal.
Tooth Extraction Procedure
Before an extraction, your Katy dentist will take digital images of your mouth to evaluate your case. If any signs of infection or an immune deficiency are present, an antibiotic may be prescribed for before and after your extraction procedure.
Following both a simple and surgical tooth extraction, some discomfort is completely normal. Minor bleeding from the extraction is also common. Your dentist at Dr. Teeth will discuss any post-op instructions and prescribe any medications necessary for you to have a quick and comfortable recovery.
