At the time of extraction, Dr. Pierse will provide patients with local anesthesia to make the surgical site numb. During the procedure, the patient often experiences a great deal of pressure, as the bone is widened and the tooth is carefully removed. The tooth may also be sectioned in an attempt to conserve the supporting bone and minimize post-operative discomfort.

If the patient does feel pain at any time during the procedure, it is addressed immediately so that the surgery can be completed while the patient is comfortable.
