|Tooth extraction is the removal
of a tooth from its socket in the bone. A tooth that is severely damaged
or infected may need to be removed.
||Before removing a tooth, a dentist will give
you a local anesthetic to numb the area affected area. Once the area is
numb, your dentist will remove the tooth. Sometimes a few stitches may
be needed to help the gums heal. You can gently bite down on a cotton gauze
placed over the area to help stop the bleeding. You may also receive antibiotics
to fight infection. The removed tooth can be replaced with an implant,
a denture, or a bridge.
