Tooth Extractions Experienced & Compassionate Dental Care Since 1918

Wichita Tooth Extractions

Unmatched Experience & Attentive Care

Sometimes, a dental issue may necessitate an extraction. This includes when a tooth cannot be saved by a root canal or filling or when a patient has impacted wisdom teeth, among other issues. At Scheer Dentistry, we truly care about your smile and your comfort and will always use our unmatched experience to keep you informed about your health care decisions. We’ll make sure you fully understand your options and will explain the entire process before opting to remove a tooth.

Ask our office to evaluate your mouth for a potential Wichita tooth extraction by calling (316) 333-6214. We always take the time to personalize your dental experience.

Prevent the Spread of Infection & Decay

Every appointment begins with a thorough examination when our dentist will get to know you and your mouth. We’ll examine your tooth to determine whether or not it is salvageable, searching for signs of breaks, the extent of decay, and concerns regarding overcrowding. This is especially true in the case of wisdom teeth which are prone to overcrowding and can become impacted, leading to a necessary extraction.

Your tooth may need to be removed if:

  • The pain in your tooth radiates to the gum or has caused swelling in your jaw
  • X-rays show there is not enough room for your wisdom teeth, or that they are coming in crooked
  • The tooth is visibly split or broken, to the point that cosmetic repair would not be effective
  • You suffer from chronic bad breath that cannot be treated by normal measures
  • You notice mobility in your teeth, meaning that the root has become infected

These cases may or may not be painful. If you are in pain, we always want to take care of you as soon as possible. We may be able to accommodate an afterhours or weekend appointment, when available, to help ease your pain.

The Extraction Procedure

In some cases, a tooth may simply be "wiggled" loose through the use of forceps at our dental office. However, teeth must be visible above the gum line for this procedure to be effective. Other teeth, especially impacted wisdom teeth, need to be removed through a surgical procedure. Your cheeks, gums, and mouth will be numbed and gum will be gently opened using a small incision. In some cases, the tooth must be broken to be removed from your jaw.

Recovery time and healing varies according to the type of procedure you receive. We want our patients to feel fully comfortable when going through a tooth extraction and always make sure you are made thoroughly aware of what to expect.

When you have a potential tooth issue, start by contacting our skilled dentist for an exam. We can help you understand if a Wichita tooth extraction will help you. Call us at (316) 333-6214 today.
