Gentle, Pain-Free Extractions

Dr. Jason Larsen will always try to save your tooth at Parkside Dental, but tooth extraction is sometimes the best option to eliminate your pain and discomfort

With gentle, pain-free basic extractions, you can get back to your day-to-day routine and prevent further complications

We offer sedation dentistry to ensure that you remain completely safe and comfortable during the extraction process

Dr. Larsen also specializes in implant dentistry, so you can replace missing teeth permanently after extraction

When are Extractions Necessary?

Extractions may be required due to the eruption of wisdom teeth, due to severe tooth damage that can’t be repaired, or to prepare for another dental treatment. There may be a few other reasons, but these are the most common.

Wisdom teeth extractions are very common. The wisdom teeth begin to emerge between the ages of 17-25, and many people do not have enough space in their mouths for these teeth, which leads to a number of dental health complications. If your wisdom teeth aren’t erupting properly, they may need to be extracted.

Extractions are also sometimes required if your tooth has been severely damaged by oral trauma, extensive tooth decay, or gum disease. Removing the tooth and replacing it with an implant is sometimes the only option for restoring your smile.

In addition, extractions are sometimes used to prepare for dental treatments. If you get full-arch dentures, for example, all of your remaining teeth must be pulled before you can have your dentures fitted.

What Can I expect From The Extraction Process?

First, Dr. Larsen will clean and numb your mouth. Once your mouth is numb, he’ll use a tool called a “dental elevator” to move the tooth around and loosen it in its socket. After the tooth has been loosened sufficiently, it will be pulled out using forceps.

Once the tooth has been removed, the extraction site will be cleaned and disinfected to prevent infection, and sutured shut. It usually takes about 5 minutes to extract one tooth. Then, this process will be repeated if you need to have multiple teeth extracted.

Do Extractions Hurt?

Extractions at Parkside Dental do not hurt. Your mouth will be completely numb during the process, and you can also be sedated during your appointment to ensure your comfort as your tooth is extracted. You may experience some pain and discomfort while you recover from surgery, but you will not feel anything during the extraction process. 


How Long Does It Take To Heal?

It will usually take between 1-2 weeks for your mouth to heal completely after an extraction. After your treatment, Dr. Larsen will provide you with a set of instructions to follow during the recovery process. You’ll need to eat a diet of mostly soft foods, avoid heavy exertion for a few days, and take a few other steps to make sure that your extraction site heals quickly and without any complications, so follow these instructions closely as you heal.
