What Does Treatment Entail?
After we’ve thoroughly examined your mouth and confirmed the condition of your tooth, we’ll start the process of numbing your tooth and the gum tissue surrounding it. This ensures that your treatment is as comfortable and pain-free as possible. After gently rocking the tooth back and forth using an elevator, we’ll make sure that the root has been broken from the periodontal ligament. Then, we’ll grasp the tooth with a pair of dental forceps and gently remove the tooth, followed by asking you to bite down on a gauze pad to stop any bleeding.
