What Are Tooth Extractions?

While board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Matthew Hlavacek and Dr. Jason Baker make every effort to save and keep your natural teeth, there are cases in which a tooth or teeth might need to be taken out. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible above the gums. This is normally used for a tooth that's damaged or decayed beyond repair. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that hasn't erupted above the gums. Surgical extractions are most commonly done to take out impacted teeth, like wisdom teeth, that do not have enough space to fit into your smile. Our Kansas City, MO office provides multiple sedation methods, like nitrous oxide and oral-conscious sedation, to help you remain comfortable and calm during your treatment. Contact Kansas City Surgical Arts for more information.

How Are Tooth Extractions Performed?

Tooth extractions are performed in our office using local anesthesia on the area around the tooth being removed. Other kinds of sedation might be used, depending on the extent of the procedure and to help keep you relaxed if you have some dental anxieties. For a simple extraction, Dr. Hlavacek or Dr. Baker will loosen the tooth with a special device known as an elevator prior to removing the tooth. A surgical extraction entails making incisions into your gums to reach the tooth. If needed, the tooth may be broken up into smaller pieces so it can be taken out. Once the tooth is removed, we will close the incision in your gums.

Wonderful from start to finish! Answered all of my questions clearly and kept me calm during my wisdom teeth removal. Cheaper cost than I expected as well which is a bonus. Would recommend 100%!

First time at this location. Daughter was treated with care by all staff. They were all attentive and courteous. Dr. Baker, thank you, for taking the time to explain every step and for following up on my daughter, in the evening. She did really well with her wisdom teeth extraction. She had no side effects at all. Thank you!!
