The Two Types of Extractions

  • Routine extractions

    This type of extraction is performed on teeth that are already exposed in the mouth. During these simple extractions, the dentist will loosen the affected tooth with a tool called an elevator. Then, the tooth can be easily extricated with forceps.
  • Surgical extractions

    This type of extraction is slightly more complex. They are performed on teeth that are not visible in the mouth. There are many reasons this could be necessary, such as if a tooth breaks off at the gum line or if it hasn’t grown into the mouth yet.

Why Extraction Sometimes is the Answer

It may seem counterintuitive to intentionally remove teeth from your mouth when the majority of dentistry is focused on the preservation of natural teeth, but there are times when an extraction is necessary to promote your overall oral health.

This may be the case when:

  • Existing teeth are blocking other teeth from growing in
  • Baby teeth don’t fall out in time to make room for permanent teeth
  • A mouth is being prepared for the teeth movement involved with braces
  • Cancer drugs or treatments are involved
  • A tooth is infected with deep, irreparable tooth decay

I got my wisdom teeth taken out at this office, the staff and dentist made me feel so much better about it. I was so nervous but they calmed me down and reassured me everything would be alright. The recovery from surgery was so much easier than I thought. I had a great experience and the people there are so sweet!

Professional and caring dentist and staff. Dr. Bhatti takes the time to explain different treatments and their pros and cons. He spends the time necessary to serve his patients, even at the sacrifice of his and his staff’s free time. One of the hardest adjustments is to work with a new care provider but Dr. Bhatti made it easy.
