Tooth Extractions

You may need to receive a tooth extraction if you are experiencing tooth discomfort and pain. Our team is dedicated in providing the latest techniques in the dental industry so you can smile confidently again!

What are Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extractions involve the removal of a permanent tooth from its socket. We ensure your safety and comfort with each and every appointment.

Do I Need an Extraction?

A tooth extraction is necessary if you are experiencing:

  • Progressive tooth decay
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Dental infections

Types of Extractions

There are two types of extractions that are performed:

Simple

  • Progressive tooth decay
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Dental infections

Surgical

  • Removes a tooth beneath gum tissue
  • A minimal incision is made in the gums and the tooth is extracted with a set of surgical instruments

After your dental extraction, we recommend arranging for someone to take you to and from the office. Adhere to post-care instructions from your doctor including taking prescribed medication, antibiotics and making follow-up appointments!
