Gentle, comfortable tooth extractions
Our first priority is to save your tooth, but when tooth damage is so extensive that it cannot be repaired, a dental extraction may be necessary. Additionally, wisdom teeth often need to be extracted to make room in your jaw or improve your dental health.
Our office specializes in comfortable, high-quality care — including dental extractions for all ages. If you think you may need a tooth removed, contact our office today for a consultation.

Reasons for an extraction may include:
Infected or abscessed tooth
Broken & damaged teeth
Wisdom teeth causing problems
Better results through advanced technology
Just because you need a tooth removed doesn’t mean you should settle for an uncomfortable or rushed diagnosis and treatment. Thanks to CBCT 3D imaging, Dr. Jackson will visualize your dental health situation and outline whether or not an extraction is necessary. If so, we’ll make a plan for replacing the tooth after it’s removed, as necessary.
Dr. Jackson answers your most common questions about tooth extractions
Do you remove wisdom teeth?
Yes! We work with patients of all ages who need their wisdom teeth extracted. Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth extracted. We’ll help you understand whether or not removing your wisdom teeth is important for your long-term health and wellness.
Does a tooth extraction hurt?
We’ll ensure you’re fully numb and comfortable during the procedure. We may prescribe you pain medication to take after surgery. You can also use an ice pack to alleviate any discomfort in the day or so after the procedure.
How long will it take to recover from a dental extraction?
After the surgery, you will need to rest. If anesthesia was administered, you’ll need to be driven home by a friend or family member. We’ll apply gauze at the end of the surgery, and you’ll need to change it periodically. If bleeding continues for longer than 24 hours, give us a call. Rest when you return home, but avoid lying flat as it could prolong the bleeding. Instead, prop your head up on a pillow.
Can I eat and drink immediately following an extraction?
We’ll ask you to limit soft foods for a few days after your surgery. Instead, some recommended foods are:
- Mashed potatoes
- Ice cream
- Thin soups
When drinking, avoid using a straw. The sucking motion can loosen your sutures and slow the clotting process. The same goes for smoking and vaping.
