Tooth Extractions in Garland, Texas
Sometimes teeth need to be extracted. This can happen because of tooth decay and damage, gum disease that destabilizes the area too much, not enough room in the mouth for a new tooth, or because the tooth is a wisdom tooth.
How Tooth Extractions Work:
The dentist begins by numbing the problem area. The patient will feel pressure, but should not experience any pain. The process takes a few minutes.
Gauze is placed over the area after the tooth has been extracted – this prevents bleeding. The area may bleed up to 24 hours. The dentist will provide you with ways to take care of the area as well as how to replace gauze.
