Tooth Extractions – Needham, MA

Gentle Extractions to Promote Long-term Oral Health

We always make every effort to help our patients retain their natural teeth for a lifetime. In some cases, however, that simply is not possible. If a tooth is too damaged to repair, or other circumstances make extraction necessary, we will perform your procedure as gently and conservatively as possible. Afterward, we may be able to offer a tooth replacement solution. We carry out tooth extractions in our Needham, MA dental office with the goal of helping you enjoy long-term oral health.

Why Choose Gillis Dental for Tooth Extractions?

What to Expect with a Tooth Extraction

If your extraction is going to be a relatively simple procedure, we will numb the area and use forceps to grip the tooth. We will gently rock the tooth back and forth in order to break the ligaments that attach it to the surrounding bone. After the tooth is out, we will use gauze to control any bleeding. For non-surgical extractions, the average recovery time is only a few days.

If a tooth is impacted (stuck beneath the gum line), the extraction will take longer and be a more complex procedure. We will take every measure possible to ensure a comfortable appointment and smooth recovery for you.
