Extraction is the removal of a tooth. You may need a tooth extraction for many reasons – including decay. Many people will need their wisdom teeth removed at some point in their lives. Rose Street Dental offers comprehensive dental extraction services for Traverse City, MI and the surrounding areas.

What types of extraction are performed?

There are two main types of extractions: simple and surgical.

Simple Extractions

These extractions are performed on visible teeth, using local anesthetic. The tooth is elevated and grasped, then removed. The tooth is lifted with a special tool. and then using slow and steady pressure forceps are employed to remove the decayed tooth.

Surgical Extractions

A tooth that cannot be accessed easily requires surgical extraction. If the tooth has broken under the gum, or is otherwise hidden, this procedure is necessary. Surgical extractions require an incision. The tooth may be broken into pieces to make removal easier. Surgical extraction is a more involved procedure, but not uncommon.
