What Types of Extractions Are Offered?

We offer both basic extractions and surgical extractions for wisdom teeth so that you can get the care you need to relieve your pain and discomfort. Basic extractions are used to remove teeth which are damaged or decayed, but are not impacted (not fully erupted from the socket). Dr. Kella will simply use special tools to loosen the tooth in its socket, then extract it. This process takes only about 5 minutes per tooth.

A surgical extraction may be needed if your wisdom tooth is impacted and has not fully emerged. An incision will be made in the gum line, and then the tooth will be removed through this incision.

What Are the Signs that I Need a Tooth Extraction?

You may need one or more of your teeth to be extracted if you’re suffering from severe tooth decay that can’t be treated with a root canal. Signs of this include a prolonged toothache, discoloration of the tooth and surrounding gum tissue, and sensitivity to heat, cold, and pressure.

A tooth extraction may also be required if your tooth has been damaged by gum disease and is loose. In some cases, extractions may also be used for orthodontic purposes, or to prepare for a procedure like a dental implant. 

If your wisdom teeth are emerging and are causing you serious pain and discomfort, they may need to be extracted. Look for symptoms like redness around your wisdom teeth, swelling, pain, inflammation, pus coming from the gums, jaw soreness, or bad breath. These all indicate that you may need a wisdom tooth extraction. It’s best to have your wisdom teeth extracted before the age of 30. As you age, they will become more securely attached and bonded to your jaw, making the process of removing your wisdom teeth more difficult.

What Can I Expect From the Extraction Process?

  • First, your mouth will be cleaned and numbed. During a basic extraction, Dr. Kella will use specialized dental tools to loosen your tooth, then extract it.
  • A surgical extraction will require Dr. Kella to make an incision in the gum through which he will remove your tooth. Once the extraction is complete, the area will be cleaned and sutured shut.
  • You’ll be given comprehensive recovery instructions after your appointment. Usually, you will feel some pain and discomfort for the first 1-3 days after your procedure. Most of this will go away after about a week. After two weeks, your mouth will feel completely healed.
