At Opulent Dental, our goal is to save the tooth by any means. However, at times, the decay or damage is beyond any restorative dental procedure or the wisdom tooth causes so much pain to the patient that tooth extraction is inevitable.

Tooth extraction – What should you expect?

The patient jumps out of the dental chair as soon as the dentist tells them they need tooth extraction. The anticipation of scary needles and the mere sight of the extraction instruments trigger anxiety and fear in the patients, and they are gone forever. This is why, at Opulent Dental we treat your fears first and then your dental issues.

Tooth extraction is a surgical or non-surgical removal of the tooth under local anesthesia, or under general anesthesia but that is rare.

Reasons you need tooth extraction:


  • Severely decayed damage teeth
  • Root caries

  • For orthodontic reasons

To save your teeth and your smile, it is crucial to get regular dental check-ups at Opulent Dental. So even the minor dental issues can be caught and treated at the earliest saving the natural tooth.


Will I have other dental problems if do not replace the extracted tooth?
It depends on the reason and the tooth you are being extracted. If it is the wisdom tooth, or your orthodontist has suggested getting a tooth removed then there is nothing to worry about. However, if your dentist at Opulent Dental suggests a replacement for an extracted tooth, then it must be essential to go with it.
