How long does tooth extraction take?

The amount of time needed for tooth extraction can vary. A single tooth can take only a few seconds to extract while removing several teeth can take a little longer.

The tooth to be extracted will be numbed with a local anesthetic. If the patient has a lot of dental work to be completed, such as fillings and crowns, the anesthetic could wear off before the dental work can be completed. In that case, an additional anesthetic can be used to numb the area again.
