People call a simple tooth extraction “getting a tooth pulled.” There’s a little bit more to it than that, but simple teeth extractions are often the most common.
During this procedure, your dentist will typically administer a local anesthetic. This will numb the area of the tooth that’s to be extracted. They’ll then use an elevator to loosen the tooth before removing it.
You’ll only feel pressure during the procedure since your mouth is numb.
In some cases, your dentist may recommend a surgical dental extraction. They aren’t very common, but in some cases, they may be the easiest way to extract a tooth. Some wisdom teeth require surgical extraction, for instance.
During this procedure, you may receive an intravenous or general aesthetic in addition to local anesthesia. After administering the anesthetic, your dentist will then surgically remove the tooth.
It’s possible that you won’t be able to drive yourself home after this procedure. Dr. Philley will help you understand the procedure and what you will or will not be able to do afterward.
If you have a dental emergency, it’s possible that you need an emergency tooth extraction. Philley Dentistry offers emergency tooth extraction in Tyler, TX, among other emergency dental procedures.
For emergency cases, we’re able to see you the same day that you make your appointment. Should you need an emergency extraction, we may be able to do that the same day as well.

In addition to local anesthetic, which numbs the area where we extract your tooth, Philley Dentistry offers a variety of other sedation options to help ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during your procedure.
These include nitrous oxide, which can help with the fear leading up to the procedure. We also offer oral sedatives that will relax you and calm any anxiety you may have before your procedure.
