Teeth Extractions

Teeth Extractions

Patient comfort and safety are our top priorities

Much like humans, companion animals may need to have a tooth (or teeth) pulled for a variety of reasons.

Severe gum disease, tooth resorption, and tooth fractures can be quite painful, and in many cases, removing the affected tooth/teeth is the best option. We try to save patients’ teeth whenever possible, but it’s better for your companion to be missing a tooth or two than to suffer daily from a badly infected or painful tooth. If your furry friend needs to have a tooth pulled, we’re here for you. SimpleVet Pet Hospital performs teeth extractions in Little Elm and would be honored to be entrusted with your companion’s care.

Support for Pets and Owners Every Step of the Way

Patient comfort and safety are our top priorities. We also strive to support pet parents and put their minds at ease as much as possible. We support our patients and their owners in several ways: 
  • Best pet dental care in Little Elm
  • Compassionate, caring team
  • Advanced aftercare options

What to Expect

The exact procedure for removing a dog or cat’s tooth varies depending on the condition and location. Before surgery, we provide a long-lasting nerve block to minimize discomfort and pain. Extractions are performed under general anesthesia, as well, for patient comfort and safety. 

During surgical extractions, we typically make small incisions in the adjacent gum tissue to gain access to the affected tooth. In some cases, we also need to remove bone. Once the tooth is out, we flush the socket to eliminate debris. The extraction site is then closed. Unlike humans, dogs and cats don’t get “dry socket,” so recovery is generally fast and easy. Most patients experience no more than minor bleeding and temporary discomfort.

How Will My Pet Do Without Their Teeth?

Your pet will most likely do great! Dogs and cats recover quickly and can resume their normal eating habits right away. Chances are, they weren’t using painful or damaged teeth to eat anyway, so losing them isn’t a big deal. And your furry friend won’t mind if there are a few gaps in their smile after surgery.
