Most of the time, an extraction for a tooth that is extensively decayed or broken is quite straightforward. After numbing the tooth and nearby area, the tooth is held with a pair of dental forceps and rocked gently back and forth. Within a few minutes, the tooth usually slips out on its own, and the patient barely feels a thing. Despite what you may have seen on TV or in movies, our extractions never involve pulling teeth!
For a patient who has a compromised immune system, if the tooth is infected, or if a patient has a bleeding disorder or is on blood thinners, this can easily complicate the extraction process. Fortunately, these are obstacles Dr. Patel has traversed many times before with great success.
During your consultation appointment, be sure to share any ongoing medical conditions or medications you are taking so Dr. Patel can adjust the procedure to make it as safe as possible.
