THE STAGES OF TOOTH EXTRACTION:

- Tooth extraction - local infiltration anesthesia is performed at the beginning of the operation. Tissues are removed using special surgical instruments, the tooth is loosened and extracted. The whole procedure is performed thoroughly in order to preserve the surrounding bone walls. This is essential if implantation is planned in the future. The duration of the operation depends on the complexity of the extraction, usually, it lasts from 30 min to 1 hour.
- Care - after the operation, the Patient might feel a slight stretching, however, cold therapy helps to reduce such discomfort. The Patient is informed about the care required after the treatment, and an additional informational booklet is provided.
