Why might I need an extraction?
Unhealthy or problematic teeth aren’t good for your oral health. Our team will always try to save your natural teeth, but sometimes a simple, painless tooth extraction is the best way to get your smile back on track. There are many reasons why a patient may need a tooth extracted. Wisdom teeth tend to cause discomfort that can be alleviated with extractions while some advanced restorative procedures, like dental implants, require the removal of unhealthy teeth. With a gentle technique and local anesthesia or sedation options, teeth extractions can be quick and painless.

The Extraction Process
Whether you need a one off extraction or several teeth removed in preparation for additional services, your treatment plan is created specifically for you and your needs. You doctor will discuss all options and give you the final sign off so we can get your smile back on track in the way that makes you most comfortable.
After cleaning and sanitizing the site, your doctor will numb the area with local anesthesia. Depending on your case, you may only need local anesthesia for your extraction. The goal is to make you as comfortable as possible during treatment, so you may choose a sedation option as well. Sedation can help you relax and relieve anxiety during your procedure.
Extraction & Healing
The extraction itself usually only takes a few minutes. Once the tooth has been pulled, your dentist will clean the area and suture the extraction site if necessary. Recovery typically takes 1-2 weeks. Your doctor will provide you with a comprehensive set of instructions to help your mouth heal as quickly as possible.
