Extractions

Our doctors are trained to perform extractions as efficiently and comfortably as possible. We use local anesthetic and  additional sedation, if necessary, to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Depending on your individual case, your doctor may either be able to loosen and remove the tooth whole, or he may need to make an incision in the gum or remove bone to expose the tooth. For complex cases, we may refer you to an oral surgeon or another specialist.

Tooth extraction may be performed for various health reasons. Cases where extraction may be appropriate include:

  • Preparing mouth for bridgework or dentures

  • Making room in a crowded mouth, often in preparation for orthodontic treatment

  • Decay or infection that does not respond to root canal therapy

  • Damaged tooth that cannot be repaired

  • Impaction or erupting at an irregular growth or angle

  • Severe gum disease that cannot be treated with periodontal therapy

Dental Extractions can Restore your Oral Health

Although saving a tooth is always preferable, extraction may be necessary to relieve discomfort and preserve overall oral health.
