    When Is Extraction Necessary?

    It may be necessary to remove your teeth if any of the following apply to you:

    • Your teeth are overcrowded, and you require orthodontic treatment.
    • You have a severely decayed tooth that cannot benefit from root canal treatment.
    • Your teeth are significantly loosened as a result of periodontal disease.
    • Your impacted wisdom teeth are causing you pain.

    During your appointment, our dentist near you will assess you carefully to determine whether extraction is the best treatment option for you. Since extraction involves permanent tooth loss, we don’t recommend it except when it’s the only and best option available.

    Types of Tooth Extraction and What to Expect

    There are two types of extraction—simple/non-surgical extraction and surgical extraction. During a simple extraction, our dentist grabs onto the affected tooth using dental tools and then proceeds to pull the tooth from the socket. This straightforward procedure is painless and typically over within minutes.

    Surgical extractions are more complicated. As the name suggests, surgical extractions involve surgery. During a surgical extraction, our dentist may cut through the gum tissue to access the tooth. This is typically common in cases of impacted teeth or where a tooth has decayed right down to the gum line.

    For both extractions, we use anesthesia and include the option of sedation for patients who struggle with dental anxiety.

    Our dentist will tell you how to care for the extraction site to facilitate healing. You must remember to observe proper after-care instructions after an extraction.

    Dr. Rosas is so caring and compassionate. I was nervous about getting a crown (first one ever). She patiently addressed all my concerns, and the crown turned out perfect. They have high-tech equipment for x-rays and photographs. The office is very comfortable, and everyone there is super nice and helpful. Definitely recommend.
    Dr. Rosas and her staff are very professional as well as understanding and caring. After not seeing a dentist for awhile due to Dr. Lake's retirement and then the pandemic, some of my teeth ended up with a few issues. Dr. Rosas was able to explain what all of my issues were, why the issues had happened and what needed to be done to fix them within a reasonable timeframe. Thank you so much!
    I highly recommend Dr Rosas. She is super nice and informative. The whole staff is amazing!!
