Tooth Extraction

What is a Tooth Extraction?

Extractions are done as a way to remove problematic teeth. In some cases, a tooth is too far gone to save it and extraction is the only viable option. Alternatively, a tooth poses a risk to your future oral health, like a wisdom tooth. We perform extractions safely and comfortably in our office at your own convenience.

Why is a Tooth Extraction needed?

An extraction can be done on both pediatric and adult patients. We will always try to save the tooth, if possible, before recommending an extraction. Some reasons you’d need an extraction include:

  • A tooth is loose or severely decayed
  • You have impacted wisdom teeth
  • Your child has a stubborn baby tooth
  • A tooth is in the way of receiving orthodontic care
  • A tooth has cracked or broken below the gum line
  • You want to avoid having or needing other procedures

To determine if you might need to have an extraction done, we will perform an exam. X-rays are useful in giving us an idea of which tooth needs to be removed and whether or not you have any impacted teeth. If you do need an extraction, it is best to have the problem tooth removed as soon as possible. This prevents the tooth from damaging other teeth or becoming more of an issue to your oral health.

What happens during a Tooth Extraction?

We begin the process with sedation or anesthetic used to numb the area and make the procedure comfortable for you. Once this is done, we will work to loosen and remove the tooth. If an impacted tooth needs extraction, we’ll make a small incision through the gums to gain access to the underlying tooth. Once the tooth is removed, we may place stitches on an as-needed basis. We then send you home with important aftercare instructures to ensure that the area heals correctly.

If you think you might need an extraction, call our office today and we can get you in for an appointment as soon as possible.
