Typically your dentist will be the one to not only diagnose and find the damaged tooth, but he/she will more than likely be the one to remove the tooth as well.
Removing the damaged tooth might seem a little more intimidating than what it really is. Before your dentist removes the tooth, they will give you a local anesthetic which will numb the area around the tooth that is being removed.
After having an extraction we recommend continuous pressure on the extraction site 30-45 minutes depending on the bleeding. Gauze will be provided for you to take home. It is okay to brush and floss gently around the area. If bleeding persists bite on a tea bag (i.e. Lipton Tea Bag, not an herbal one) until subsided.
