Tooth Extractions – Oshkosh, WI

Ensuring Safe and Comfortable
Tooth Removals


Tooth extractions are far from the first treatment Dr. Heil considers for patients, especially when there are many restorative options available to save a tooth. However, if a tooth does need to be removed, either because of severe damage or to protect neighboring teeth, he’ll make sure to break the procedure down in great detail, explain why it’s necessary beforehand, and make sure that you’re feeling comfortable and ready for care. If you have severe dental discomfort and you aren’t sure why, don’t hesitate to get in touch for truly comprehensive care, including tooth extractions in Oshkosh, WI, from the dentist and dental team at Oshkosh Complete Dentistry.

Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction

While tooth extractions are not typically performed, there are many instances where they may be needed. For example, if a tooth is so damaged that a filling, crown or root canal therapy cannot save it, removal is often the best choice moving forward. However, damage sustained from a physical injury can also leave a tooth unsalvageable. In rarer cases, teeth may need to be removed to make room for future orthodontic treatment.

How Tooth Extractions Work

Tooth extractions can be either simple or surgical, depending on your situation. For example, teeth that are clearly visible are much easier to remove. This is done by rocking the tooth back and forth with a dental elevator and then removing it with a pair of dental forceps. However, teeth that are trapped underneath gum tissue will require a surgical incision to access. Regardless of the type of extraction you need, Dr. Heil will make sure you are fully comfortable and given proper anesthetic beforehand.
