Feel Better Fast With a Last Resort Tooth Extraction!

Whenever possible, we strive to always do whatever we can so you don’t have to extract your teeth.  However, fillings and repairs can only do so much for your teeth, and there are cases where we may need to do an extraction.

The damage to a tooth can be so severe that it cannot be repaired, and then the dentist may recommend having the tooth pulled. The deterioration of one tooth can extend to other teeth, so it’s of utmost importance to save other teeth in these cases.

A simple extraction may be recommended in cases such as:

  • Severely damaged teeth
  • Broken tooth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Severe dental pain
  • Tooth luxation
  • Severe tooth infections

Why Do People Need A Tooth Extraction?

The most common reason for a tooth extraction process would have to be trauma to the tooth – whether the tooth has badly decayed or suffered trauma, but other causes can be:


In several cases, the infection of tooth decay can go further and affect the pulp underneath the tooth. That can cause the blood vessels of the tooth to become infected. Some oral surgeons may opt for performing a root canal to repair the gum tissue. However, if the case is more severe than it initially seemed, the oral surgeon will opt to perform a surgical tooth removal to contain the infection.

Crowded Mouth

In some extreme cases, the general dentists can remove several permanent teeth as a part of the orthodontic procedure. Orthodontia exists to align the teeth right, but if your teeth are too large for your mouth, they cannot be aligned right. Many oral surgeons will opt for the removal of wisdom teeth, as they are the largest.


Some patients who have received an organ transplant or are currently undergoing chemotherapy are considered immuno-compromised. In those cases, the oral surgeon may opt to perform tooth extractions simply because the affected tooth is a risk of infection. Still, it’s exclusively done based on medical history.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, or disease of the gum and bone tissue, can cause an infection of the gum tissue and the bones. The infection can loosen the gum line, reduce the tooth, and cause the need for surgical extraction of one or more teeth. Periodontal (gum) disease. If periodontal disease — an infection of the tissues and bones that surround and support the teeth — has caused loosening of the teeth, it may be necessary to pull the tooth or teeth.

Tooth Extractions: How We Can help

Tooth Extraction Services At Glenwood

We believe in going above and beyond for all of our patients, no matter the treatment. We will first examine the situation in your mouth to see the condition of your teeth. The dentist will also take an X-ray of the affected tooth to see what procedure will be the best, especially if you are dealing with some swelling.

It’s important to note that there are two types of tooth extractions – a simple extraction and a surgical extraction. In simple extractions, the tooth that is pulled is the ones that are visible in the mouth. To securely process the tooth, the dentist will numb the area and the gums before loosening the tooth and removing it.

Surgical extractions are more complex, as they are usually done to promote healing and promote a better bite, and oral surgeons and general dentists can do this procedure. To surgically remove a tooth, the dentist may make a small incision into the gum line to remove the tooth, such as third molars or wisdom teeth.

The dentist will advise you about the best aftercare following an extraction. They may also notify you about the best way to perform the procedure from their relevant experience – at Glenwood Dental Care, you can choose from:

  • Nitrous oxide or laughing gas
  • General anesthesia
  • Local anesthetic
  • Oral sedative medication
  • Intravenous sedation.
