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 Heather G
I had issues with my previous oral surgery recommendation. I called around. Lakeside oral surgery got me in for a same day consultation and the next day surgery. They understood the urgency. Day of procedure they eased my anxiety and all went well. Dr. & staff took great care of me and my needs. Also received a nice follow up call from Dr. Pamula himself the next day. 🙂

Patient Review from Donna L
My situation called for a tooth extraction, which I didn't want to wait for. I called Lakeside Oral and they were quick to respond with an appointment within the next hour. I was both hesitant and desperate. All fears left as soon as I walked into the office and was greeted by a professional and friendly staff. It only got better after that. Dr Pamula was amazing and explained the procedure and put my anxiety to rest. The other thing I really liked was the office explained the financials to me ahead of time, so I wasn't in shock when a bill came. I appreciate this type of professionalism.
