Tooth Extraction in Halifax

While we work hard to maintain the health of your teeth and offer a wide range of services to protect and restore them, there are times when a tooth extraction may be necessary. Your dentist will only suggest an extraction when no other solution exists and the damage to your tooth cannot be fixed.

What Is the Process for a Tooth Extraction?

Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure. They will then loosen the tooth and extract it using forceps. The process is straightforward and completed fairly quickly. If you suffer from dental anxiety, consult with your dentist before your appointment to learn if you are a candidate for oral conscious sedation.

How Can I Avoid a Tooth Extraction?

Keeping your teeth and gums healthy requires good hygiene practices at home. Regular brushing and flossing helps to prevent decay and minimize the risk of cavities and infection. Limiting excessive sugary drinks and foods can also help. We also recommend visiting your dentist at least once a year. This allows us to identify problems early and resolve them quickly before complications affect the integrity of the tooth.
