In most cases, tooth extraction is not a complicated procedure. The tooth and the surrounding area are anesthetized. The process begins with the use of levers to gently detach the tooth from the bone. In some situations, the tooth is entirely removed with a lever. If that is not the case, the extraction continues with the use of forceps. After the tooth is removed, the wound is inspected, and slight bleeding is stopped by placing a piece of gauze on the area and biting down for approximately 10 minutes.
