Tooth Extractions

Woman smiling after healing from tooth extractions by dentist in Appleton, WI.A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.

Why are teeth extracted?

•  Severely decayed teeth
•  Periodontal disease leading to bone loss
•  Fractured in such a way that it is impossible or impractical to repair
•  Badly positioned (impacted wisdom teeth)
•  Non-functional or poorly functional teeth that should be replaced with a bridge, denture or dental implant

A simple and non-surgical procedure

Extractions are generally classified as either non-surgical (also known as "simple") or surgical (involving cutting through the gums and tooth). A "simple" procedure can become a surgical procedure if the tooth fractures or refuses to loosen under pressure.

We perform these procedures only after making the extraction site(s) profoundly numb. Many extractions can be performed in our Appleton office; however, more complicated procedures may be referred to one of our trusted oral surgeons.
