What types of extractions can be performed?

Doctor with Patient in Clinic

Our office is equipped to handle the two kinds of tooth extractions, known as a simple and surgical extraction.

  • Simple dental extraction. A simple extraction is the most common type of tooth extraction and usually involves the removal of a visible, single-rooted tooth. With this procedure, the dentist will use specialized instruments to loosen the tooth before removing it.
  • Surgical dental extraction. A surgical extraction involves more complex measures, such as cutting or splitting the gum or bone tissue that may be blocking access to the roots of a tooth. This type of extraction is often necessary when there are multiple root structures or if a tooth has become impacted due to an underlying problem like cysts or tumors.

What can I expect from my dental extraction appointment?

Regardless of the situation, our dental team at State Street Smiles takes care to ensure your comfort during any procedure we perform. We will provide you with pre-procedure instructions and discuss all aspects of your treatment plan with you before beginning any treatments and discuss tooth replacement options when possible. This may include partial dentures, full dentures, all-on-four dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants. Every extraction is done with proper local anesthetics and further sedation if needed.
