Teeth Extractions in Houston, TX

Many people don’t like having to go to the dentist to have a tooth pulled. Popular culture has made going to the dentist for extractions a horror story. While going to the dentist isn’t always pleasant, there is no reason to fear a tooth extraction. For many patients, they are a necessary and beneficial part of the oral healthcare process. Sometimes extracting one tooth can save the rest of your mouth from a world of oral health-related issues.

Rather than being something they fear, they see a tooth extraction as just another part of maintaining oral health.

Not everyone knows that there are two different types of extractions, and you may be more familiar with them than you realize. The first is a simple extraction and is just as it sounds; a dentist pulls a tooth from your mouth. The second is known as a complex or surgical extraction. You may have experienced one of these before if you had your wisdom teeth removed or know someone who has.

Simple vs. Complex Extractions

If you’re wondering what the difference between the extraction types is in a practical sense, we’re here to explain it.

A simple extraction occurs when a dentist can pull a tooth directly out of the mouth without surgical intervention, usually by hand or using a set of dental pliers. These are quick, easy, and relatively painless.

Complex extractions occur when a tooth has to be removed that is somehow out of position, buried in the gum line, or lodged in the mouth so that it needs to be cut from the mouth.
