What types of extractions can be performed?

Removing natural teeth may be done for various reasons, but regardless of why, our team offers solutions for how! This includes providing both simple and surgical tooth extractions.

  • Simple dental extractions. With a simple extraction, a tooth is above the gum line and accessible, allowing Drs. Matt and Bryan to grasp onto the tooth with a special extraction device and remove it from the bone of the jaw. This may be done for a tooth that is decayed or infected or for a tooth that has had failed endodontic therapy. Alternatively, patients may have teeth removed to prepare for upcoming orthodontic work or the placement of a full denture.
  • Surgical dental extractions. If your wisdom teeth or other teeth have not emerged from the gum line, a surgical dental extraction is necessary to remove them. This is a more invasive procedure during which the dentist will access the tooth underneath the gums by cutting into the soft tissues. Removing impacted wisdom teeth requires a longer recovery time, but it may be necessary when teeth are causing pain or have the potential to become painful or infected in the future.
