Dental Extractions in Oak Park
Teeth may need to be removed for a variety of reasons including extensive decay, periodontal disease, infection, or trauma. In most non-emergency situations involving one or several teeth, we will evaluate you and treat you at the same visit. Most patients are able to tolerate single tooth extractions very easily using local anesthesia alone, or local anesthesia in combination with nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”). However, not all extractions are the same. Some “routine single tooth extractions” can be very difficult and traumatic for the patient and local anesthesia is not enough. Our surgeons are highly trained in providing outpatient IV sedation and general anesthesia. Our goal is to provide you with the very best care possible in a safe, comfortable and pain-free environment. We will carefully assess the surgery needed and make the appropriate anesthesia recommendation.
