Teeth extraction

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its bone socket. Local anesthesia is used during the procedure.

Depending on the case, if the tooth is blocked-which is confirmed by radiography- a surgical incision is made in order to remove the tooth. The wound is stitched with a suture, which is absorbed or cut (within a week, usually). If the patient has a disease, the dentist will prescribe medicagion, or give him advice on what to do.
