Tooth extractions are usually our last resort in dentistry. As your dental care partner, our goal is to keep the natural tooth intact. However, we may recommend dental extractions for valid reasons such as pervasive tooth decay, impacted wisdom tooth, or when there’s a need to create space for orthodontic devices.
Dentistry of Orlando’s dentists and dental assistants provide professional tooth extraction services with care. We make sure to make the process as minimally painful as possible and give you a comfortable and smooth tooth removal procedure. You will be guided every step of the way to make sure you get the appropriate care before, during, and after tooth extraction.

This is the most common reason for a tooth removal. When decay affects both the pulp and the surface of the tooth, we no longer recommend root canal therapy but instead, tooth extraction.
Some baby teeth don’t shed, or wisdom teeth grow, and so they take up space on the arch, which causes nearby teeth to twist. We remove the tooth to properly realign teeth, especially prior to braces.
Periodontal or gum diseases cause bone and gum recession. When these two are severely eroded, they can no longer hold the tooth securely, so there’s little chance of restoring the natural tooth.
Many injured teeth can still be saved unless it becomes fractured, making repair impossible. We then remove the tooth and opt for prosthetic replacement.
Tooth extraction procedures can be simple or complex. Simple extractions are performed on fully emerged teeth, while complex extractions may require an incision to remove inaccessible or invisible teeth. Regardless, at Dentistry of Orlando, we make sure that we perform it with exactness and provide you with a comfortable experience. The procedure is broken into three steps:
Tooth extraction may cause mild discomfort. Our dentist and dental assistants at Dentistry of Orlando are experts in local anesthetics, so you won’t feel pain during the removal. If you feel nervous, feel free to talk to us. We’ll do our best to make the procedure as seamless and comfortable as possible.
If the tooth extraction leaves a space between your teeth, we recommend replacement to ensure a healthy bite and a cosmetic smile. Otherwise, leaving the space empty may lead to other problems. Your dentists will discuss your options, such as implants or dentures.
