Tooth extraction involves removing the tooth and its roots from the socket in the lower or upper jaw. Sometimes the tooth can be saved, but sometimes, an extraction is the safest and most effective course of action. Teeth that are severely damaged, badly misaligned, or have lost all feeling will only cause continued difficulty if they aren't removed.
With growing children, a tooth extraction may also be necessary to make room for new teeth or to properly align dental appliances such as braces.
For many young adults, extraction of wisdom teeth is common. This is the third molar that can begin emerging from the gum with no room to grow. This results in an impacted tooth that can become infected, causing decay in surrounding teeth, gum disease, or interference in the mechanics of your bite that may gradually misaligned teeth.
Our staff of friendly and knowledgeable dental professionals can identify the specific challenges and treatments for each patient's circumstances.
"Simple" tooth extractions are performed on a tooth that's visible above the gum line, normally with a local anesthetic. Surgical extraction of teeth within the gum is more complicated and usually requires anesthesia or sedatives.

“I was sure I just needed a filling, but when I saw that my filling had almost completely fallen away with the wand that showed my smile on the monitor, it was obvious I would need a crown or face losing the whole tooth. I was able to get a special price on the crown which made things easier for me personally. I am glad for the help and thank Dentalville for working with me and providing great service and care. Will be back”
