Dear help839,

Don't do it! - Read on

As easy as it might seem on television or the movies, removing a tooth is not as simple as it may look. If you try to extract you own tooth you run the risk of severely injuring yourself and creating a situation that will cost you more money to treat than the cost of a simple tooth extraction. You run the risk of causing one or more of the following if you attempt to extract your own tooth:

  1. Breaking you jaw. The wrong force in the wrong direction will easily fracture bone.
  2. Uncontrolled bleeding. The mouth is a very vascular area.
  3. Breaking off an additional tooth.
  4. Breaking off just part of the intended tooth, leaving a submerged root which will get infected.

Don't do it.

Sincerely,

George McKee DDS
