Surgical tooth extraction

Surgical Tooth Extraction

Surgical tooth extraction extracts teeth from the jaw, which are either blocked off or have remained unerupted for a long time. It is a procedure through which a tooth under the soft or hard tissue of the jaw bone is extracted. The process is undertaken with the help of locally injected anesthesia, which numbs the area and makes you free from any pain. The site of the extraction is often closed off with a suture to help it heal properly.
