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.

Overall I had a great experience. I had cracked a tooth so badly I could even breathe without it hurting the tooth. Of course it happened on a friday night so I lived through the weekend in excruciating pain. I work in the same building as Oral Surgery Associates so first thing Monday morning I went into the office to inquire about any potential emergency time. After explaining what happened they fit me right in. I saw Dr. Wagner who was very concerned about my comfort level and very quick with the procedure. Megan was my dental assistant and she did everything she could to keep me distracted as I waited to get numb. Hopefully I never require another extraction (aside from the impacted wisdom tooth that needs to go next), but if I do I will definitely be going back here. Thanks for a great experience and thank you for getting me out of pain so quickly!

I have never had a more easy going dental experience and I normally have really bad anxiety surrounding these kinds of things. They were quick and kind and his dental assistant couldn’t have been better. Thank you.
