Dental Extractions in Holmdel, NJ

What Is an Extraction?

A dental extraction is when a permanent tooth is removed to solve a condition like advanced tooth decay, infections, damage, or impaction. This extraction is done using specialized tools and can be completed in a single appointment. There are numerous reasons why a tooth must be removed, including:

  • Overcrowding
  • Impaction
  • Severe decay or infection
  • Physical damage that cannot be repaired or restored

Our dentist will examine your teeth and pursue other options before settling on an extraction.

Does an Extraction Hurt?

Throughout much of human history, extractions were performed using no anesthetic. By using modern technology, our office is able to keep the gums numb. The result is that you will feel no pain while a tooth is being removed. Instead, you will only feel some slight pressure as our dentist works to remove the tooth.

Who Can Receive an Extraction?

A dental extraction can be performed on patients of all ages, though the reasons for treatment often differ. Children and teenagers typically have extractions done to stop overcrowding or remove an impacted tooth that did not erupt properly. Adults often have an extraction to treat decay, infections, or physical damage caused by poor oral hygiene or injury.
