Tooth Extractions At
Forest Trail Dental Care


At Forest Trail Dental Care, we understand that the prospect of a tooth extraction can be daunting. Our primary goal is to preserve natural teeth whenever possible, but there are circumstances where extraction is necessary for the overall health of your mouth. Whether due to severe decay, injury, infection, or overcrowding, our skilled dental team is here to ensure the procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible, with a focus on your long-term dental health.

When Is Extraction Necessary?

There are several reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, including:

  • Severe Decay or Infection: When a tooth is extensively decayed or infected and cannot be saved with root canal therapy.
  • Overcrowding: To prepare for orthodontic treatment, sometimes teeth need to be removed to allow for proper alignment.
  • Risk to Other Teeth: Teeth that are severely damaged or decayed can pose a risk to the surrounding teeth and oral health.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Removal of wisdom teeth is common when they are impacted, misaligned, or causing pain and crowding.

The Extraction Process

Our approach to extractions is patient-centric, prioritizing your comfort and well-being throughout the procedure. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Consultation and Examination: Our team will thoroughly examine your mouth, possibly using X-rays, to determine the best course of action. We will discuss all available options and answer any questions you may have.
  • Anesthesia and Sedation: To ensure a painless procedure, local anesthesia will be used to numb the area around the tooth. Sedation options are also available for patients who may feel anxious or if the extraction is expected to be complex.
  • The Extraction: Our dentists use specialized tools to gently remove the tooth. In some cases, minor incisions in the gum may be necessary to fully extract the tooth.
