Sometimes teeth need to be removed. Whether abscessed or broken, we might not be able to save the tooth. It needs to be extracted. The type of extraction is determined by Dr. Dwivedi after he has examined the situation and obtained a radiograph (x-ray). He will advise you of the best course of action. But rest assured, there will be no pain. Whether you are awake with local anesthesia or as leap with general anesthesia, you will not feel anything. Dr. Dwivedi has been trained in anesthesiology just for this situation.

Instructions will be given to you and an after hours contact will be provided. You won't be left alone without any contact. Most extractions go very smoothly, even wisdom teeth. So don't be worried. If there is a tooth which has to be removed given us a call.
