About Tooth Extractions
While Dr. Hal Kussick makes every effort to keep and maintain your natural teeth, you may have specific problems, which require extraction. A simple extraction removes a tooth that's visible above the gums. This process works best for a tooth that is damaged or decayed beyond repair. A surgical extraction takes out a tooth that has not erupted over the gumline. Based on your needs, surgical extractions remove the wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that do not have sufficient room to fit into your mouth. Whatever the reason for extraction at [email protected], our staff will give you the best treatment. Our Seattle, WA dental group offers multiple sedation techniques, like nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. This means you can remain comfortable during your procedure. Please get in touch with our staff to learn more or to schedule an exam with Dr. Kussick.

What to expect with tooth extractions
We complete extractions at our office with local anesthesia and sedation techniques. A surgical extraction entails making incisions into your gums to get to the tooth. To complete a simple extraction, Dr. Kussick will loosen the tooth using a specialized device known as an elevator before removing the tooth. If needed, the tooth could be broken into smaller pieces so we can easily remove it. Once extracted, Dr. Kussick will stitch the incision in the gums. If you have a current infection, immune system problem, or other health conditions, Dr. Kussick may prescribe antibiotics that you may need to take before and following the operation.
