It’s one of those dental procedures that strikes fear in the heart of even the most seasoned dental patient – Tooth Extractions. Here at Summit Family & Cosmetic Dentistry Dr. López DDS wants his patients to feel at ease during all his procedures, whether it’s a teeth cleaning or a root canal. And teeth extractions are no exception.

Two Types of Tooth Extraction Procedures

There are two basic types of tooth extraction. The first kind targets the teeth we can see. These are usually adult teeth that have experienced decay or infection and they need to be removed. Dr. López will use the latest tools and techniques to make sure the tooth extraction process is discomfort-free and over before you know it.

For those teeth that have become impacted under the gumline or that are growing in crooked, we might have to use an incision so that we can have ready access to the tooth in question. In some cases, we may need to split the tooth into one or more pieces. This makes the extraction process far easier than trying to remove the entire tooth at once.
