How we extract your tooth will depend on whether it has erupted through the gum line. For example, you’ll need surgery for impacted wisdom teeth stuck beneath your gums. If the tooth is visible, our dentist will use a special tool called an elevator to loosen your tooth. Next, our dentist will use forceps to remove the tooth from your mouth.
