Tooth Extraction & Removal

At Sterling Dental Group our goal is to explore all possibilities for saving a tooth before performing an extraction. However, there are situations that will result in the need to remove a tooth—primarily when a tooth becomes damaged beyond repair by disease or decay.

Tooth extraction may be necessary if you develop severe tooth decay or a bacterial infection damages the pulp of a tooth. It’s very important that these conditions do not spread to other teeth or cause further complications, so in the event that restoration isn’t viable, extraction is often the best option. Finally, certain surgical procedures or restorations may require a patient to have one or more teeth extracted to facilitate treatment or allow other teeth room to move into their proper positions following treatment.

At Sterling Dental Group, our highly trained dentists will provide an oral examination and X-ray analysis to determine if tooth extraction is necessary. If a tooth must be removed, patients will undergo a routine procedure to extract it using local anesthesia. After the tooth is extracted, sutures will be used on the gums. The patient will be informed of post-operative care instructions and provided with pain medication, when necessary, to aid in healing and recovery.
