Tooth Extraction is a common dental procedure that involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. It is typically performed when a tooth is severely damaged, decayed, or infected, or when it needs to be removed to make room for other dental treatments. It is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth. The dentist will first loosen the tooth by rocking it back and forth, and then use forceps to gently extract it from the socket. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be necessary if the tooth is deeply impacted or has multiple roots.
