What are the signs that I may need an extraction?

There are several reasons why you may need to consider getting an extraction. First and foremost, extractions can help prevent further damage to your oral health. If you have a tooth that is severely decayed or infected, extracting it can prevent the spread of infection to surrounding teeth and gums.

Extractions can also help with overcrowding issues. If you have a small jaw or too many teeth, removing one or more teeth can create the necessary space for your teeth to align properly. This can improve your bite and prevent future dental problems.

The Benefits of Extractions

Pain Relief

Extractions can provide immediate relief from tooth pain caused by severe decay, infection, or trauma. By removing the source of the pain, you can experience immediate relief and improve your overall quality of life.

Improved Oral Health

Extracting a severely decayed or infected tooth can prevent the spread of infection to other teeth and gums. By removing the problem tooth, you can protect the health of your remaining teeth and gums, reducing the risk of further complications.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Extractions can also improve the appearance of your smile. If you have a severely damaged or discolored tooth, removing it can create space for a dental implant or other cosmetic restoration, helping you achieve a more attractive and confident smile.

The Extraction Treatment Process

Consultation and Examination

During your initial consultation, Dr. Bill Frei will examine your teeth and gums, take X-rays if necessary, and discuss your symptoms and concerns. This will help determine if extraction is the best course of action for your specific situation.

Local Anesthesia

Before the extraction, Dr. Frei will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. This ensures that you won't feel any pain during the procedure.


Using specialized dental instruments, Dr. Frei will carefully remove the tooth from its socket. The extraction process is typically quick and relatively painless. Once the tooth is removed, Dr. Frei will provide you with post-extraction care instructions to promote proper healing.
