how long does a tooth extraction take?

3 doctor answers
Dr. Gregory Barry
19 years experience Dentistry
Thanks for asking!: Most extractions take 3-5 minutes per tooth. Of course not all extractions are the same and many multi-rooted or root canal treated teeth will take longer due to their level of difficulty and need for surgical removal.
