Wondering what types of extractions we offer at our office? Dr. Patel and Dr. Major provide both basic extractions and surgical extractions for patients in West Bend. Learn more about these treatments now.
Basic extractions are required for teeth that have been damaged by oral injuries or chronic oral health conditions like tooth decay and periodontal disease. If Dr. Patel or Dr. Major believes that your tooth can’t be saved, he may recommend extraction.
The wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, and often do not have enough space to erupt properly in the mouth, since they grow in much later than the other teeth. A wisdom tooth extraction may be needed if your mouth doesn’t have enough room to accommodate these teeth.
Wisdom teeth may sometimes grow sideways or crooked, or fail to erupt completely from the gums. In this case, a surgical extraction is required to remove them from your gums and restore your oral health.
"I would highly recommend Oakbrook Dental and Dr. Habib Rahemtulla to individuals and families for their dental care and treatment. I would also like to give high praises to my dental hygienist, Kelly Skladanek. She is very gentle, super friendly, thorough and professional. She will educate you on proper dental care and hygiene while thoroughly cleaning your teeth. Oakbrook Dental is the BEST!!"
Oakbrook Dental was such a great experience. When I first stepped foot into the office, Kim and Judy had a smile on their face and greeted me so kindly. I then met my dental assistant Laura who made me feel very relaxed and calm at my visit. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole appointment which I very much appreciate being as anxious as I am. I then met Dr. Patel who was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and she made me feel very comfortable as well. I would recommend OakBrook Dental to everyone I know! :)
In a basic extraction for a fully-erupted tooth, Dr. Major or Dr. Patel will begin by cleaning and numbing the area. Sedation can also be administered, if necessary. Then, they will loosen the tooth and pull it out of the socket using special dental tools. Finally, the area will be cleaned and sutured shut to heal.
In a surgical extraction, the process is a bit different. An opening will be made in your gums, then the tooth will be cut into small pieces and extracted bit-by-bit. When it’s been removed completely, the surgical area will be cleaned and the gums will be sutured shut to heal.
If your tooth is severely damaged by an oral injury, gum disease, or extensive tooth decay, it may need to be extracted. The best way to find out is to get a consultation with an experienced dentist in West Bend.
Wisdom teeth may need to be extracted if they are causing you symptoms like pain and discomfort and oral and facial swelling. Contact Oakbrook Dental for a consultation to see if you need extractions for your wisdom teeth.
No. Extractions are done under numbing and you can even be sedated for your comfort, so you won’t have to worry about discomfort at Oakbrook Dental.
Dr. Patel or Dr. Major will give you a comprehensive set of recovery instructions to follow during the healing process. You’ll need to take steps like avoiding exercising for a few days, eating a diet of soft foods, and resting to let your mouth heal and recover.
