When getting multiple adjacent teeth extracted, do they stop in between each tooth or just pull them all & then deal with suction, gauze & such?

Hi Lexie,

It all depends. Sometimes, it is all in one hit, sometimes there is suction etc if there is some oozing obscuring the dentists view. We would also use suction and gauze in between if it makes it more comfortable for the patient.

If you have a preference of concern either way, let your dentist know in advance.
