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 needed a tooth pulled- urgently- due to severe pain from an infection. I wasn't able to get into the Oak Creek office but they got me in next day in Waukesha. I was so scared and in so much pain. Dr. Wagner wouldn't do anything until i showed no discomfort. Amazing how fast it happened. He removed the tooth and infection in a matter of minutes. He was very kind and gentle and made me feel at ease, if that's possible. I recommend him for sure.

My almost 8 year old son Evan saw Dr. Kimmel for removal of a impacted baby tooth and one that was stuck due to a trauma he had when he was smaller. The entire staff was amazing. Very caring, calming and compassionate. We never felt rushed at any time. They took the time to talk with Evan and make sure he was comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Kimmel and his staff to anyone needing oral surgery.
