Tooth Extractions

You and Dr. Pamula or Dr. Wagner may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, Drs. Pamula or Wagner will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

The Tooth Extraction Process

At the time of extraction Dr. Wagner will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.

Sectioning a Tooth

Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. Dr. Pamula or Dr. Wagner simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

Patient Review from Amy Joy D

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with warm and friendly smiles. All staff members were very kind and professional. They explained things very well so we understood how my procedure would go. Dr. Wagner was absolutely wonderful with his professional, kind demeanor and care. My multiple tooth extraction and bone grafting was a breeze. I was put under aesthetic for the procedure. Instructions for after care were easy to follow. I had no issues at all. I highly suggest Lakeside Oral Surgery & Implant Solutions. They give great service with top notch care!

Patient Review from Jeff C

Dr. Pamula explained the procedure to remove an impacted wisdom tooth with cyst in detail. Received a follow up call the next day from Dr Pamula checking on how I was doing and asking if I had any more questions. Highly recommend.
