Extractions

You and your dentist may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease; or others may have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

the extraction process

At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process, you will feel some pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You will feel the pressure without pain, as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction, please let us know right away.

Sectioning a tooth

Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections and then removes each section, one at a time.

I can't say enough about how kind and courteous Dr. Kimmel and his staff were. The procedure and after care were thoroughly explained and I was comforted to know that Dr. Kimmel would be accessible if any problems would arise over the weekend. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!!

Dr. Kimmel is extremely compassionate, caring, and careful. I was very nervous to have my tooth extracted and to have a bone graft. He talked me through the whole procedure and was exceedingly professional.

This is the first time I have ever had a tooth extracted. I was terrified!! But I was in a lot of pain for months so I knew I had to have it done. From Alyssa (the receptionist) to the assistant and the Dr. they were all patient, kind and understanding. Dr. Kortebein did an excellent job! The procedure was no where near as bad as I thought it would be. I had the extraction yesterday, had very little bleeding and today I am sore but finally relieved of the awful pain I had been dealing with. I will certainly recommend oral surgery associates to anyone who may need oral surgery.
