Here at Dental Home, our main goal is to help you keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. However, there are times when it is in your best interest to have a tooth extracted. For example, when there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth needs to be extracted from its socket in the bone. There are basically two types of extractions: a simple extraction, where the tooth is loosened with an instrument called an elevator, and a surgical extraction, a more complex procedure, which is used if a tooth has broken off at the gum line or erupted in the mouth. Both procedures will require some form of anesthesia.
