Extractions

Protect your mouth’s future by removing hazardous teeth

We use advanced techniques to ensure as little discomfort as possible!

Although permanent teeth are meant to last your entire life, there are numerous reasons why an extraction may be necessary.  Some common reasons for extraction include: a tooth that is beyond repair as a result of decay or trauma, a crowded mouth, infection, or risk of infection.  Perhaps the most common type of extraction however, is wisdom teeth.

Key Benefits

  • Protect the health of your mouth
  • Reduce risk of potential disease
  • Create a beautiful smile
  • Prevent crowding

Types of Extractions

Crowded mouth: Sometimes we may recommend that you have one or more of your teeth pulled in order to properly align your teeth and bite.  This may also occur when your tooth can’t break through the gum because there is no room for it.

Infection: Infection may occur when tooth decay or damage extends to the center of the tooth where nerves and blood vessels reside.  Bacteria can enter this area and lead to infection.  If your tooth cannot be repaired through root canal therapy it will need to be removed.

Risk of infection: If your immune system is compromised, even the risk of infection may be enough of a reason to have the tooth removed.

Wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth can cause infection, crowding, or decay, and are not an integral structure of your mouth.  We may recommend that you have them removed if we believe that they pose a risk to your oral health.  Removal is safe and painless!

Do all wisdom teeth require removal?

Some people’s wisdom teeth do not pose any potential oral health risks and will not need to be removed.

What is the best age to have wisdom teeth removed?

There is not necessarily an ideal age to remove wisdom teeth, however generally speaking, the earlier the better.

Will my insurance cover the cost of my extraction?

The majority of our treatments are covered by a large number of insurance companies.  For a more comprehensive description of coverage, please call your service provider.

    Dr. Raj is an amazing dentist!  He is friendly, knowledgable, and very good at what he does.  I have had many dentists in the past, and I can honestly say he is by far the best.  He did an excellent job on my fillings, and I referred my entire family to him, all of whom were equally impressed by his thoroughness and his quality of work.  I would recommend him to anybody!
