Tooth Extraction procedure

Losing just one tooth can affect the way you eat and speak, and it can have serious implications for your oral health later on. Saving the tooth is therefore always preferable to losing it. Unfortunately, sometimes that’s not the choice that’s available; there are cases where teeth are so badly compromised that they must be removed to protect the rest of the mouth. In these cases, we encourage you to call LaGrange Oral Surgery & Implant Center right away. Dr. Jacobs will personalize your treatment so that your extraction is completed as quickly and painlessly as possible.

We can use general anesthesia or IV sedation to keep you as relaxed and free of pain as possible during wisdom teeth removal. During the process, we may need to remove some gum and bone tissue in order to access the teeth. The molars are then loosened before being extracted. Sometimes it will be necessary to divide the tooth into sections so that it can be removed safely. At the end of the procedure, we can give you specific instructions for recovery.

When are Tooth Extractions Needed?

When deciding whether or not a tooth extraction is really necessary, we have to very carefully consider the current state of your mouth and possible other solutions. The following situations are key examples of times when a tooth extraction might be required:
