Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the surrounding bone.
A dental extraction is recommended if a tooth is decayed or damaged to the point where it cannot be repaired, for spacing for braces, oddly impacted or placed teeth (such as wisdom teeth) and to preserve space (Such as wisdom teeth as there is often no space for these teeth in the mouth).
Dr. Richards will numb the area of the tooth extraction with a local anesthetic and remove the tooth from the surrounding bone. After a dental extraction, you may need to stick to a softer food diet for the first couple of days and give yourself a few days of rest.
