Tooth Extractions

A tooth extraction can be performed for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Extensive decay
  • Cracked teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • Braces treatment to relieve overcrowding
  • To fit dentures
  • To remove loose teeth to prevent infection
  • Periodontal disease

Simple tooth extractions are a common procedure, and are performed at Cinnaminson Smiles office by the dentist. More complex extractions may be referred to an oral surgeon.

This procedure will be done under a local anesthetic to prevent the patient from feeling any pain during the extraction. Mouth soreness may last for a few days, but generally a simple extraction is not a very painful recovery.

Post-operative instructions are given to each patient.
