Expert Tooth Extractions in Chicago, IL

If restorative procedures are not enough to save one or more of your teeth, the best option for you may be to have a tooth pulled or extracted by the professionals at West Town Dental Care. With our advanced technology, anesthetics, and years of experience, tooth extractions are far less painful than ever before, causing little or no discomfort.

Whether you need a single tooth extraction or you need multiple teeth removed at once, we are here for you. Some situations that require tooth removal include if a tooth is blocking others from coming in, isn’t leaving space for orthodontic treatment, or has deteriorated beyond repair.

Another reason we often have to perform extractions is for wisdom teeth. An impacted wisdom tooth comes in at an angle instead of straight through the gum line. Impacted or partially impacted wisdom teeth can cause issues including infection and damage to adjacent teeth, making it important for us to remove your impacted wisdom teeth.

Needing a tooth extraction isn’t something to worry about when you rely on West Town Dental Care. We have extensive experience with removing teeth that are in the way, can’t be saved, or will cause future issues. We use 3-D imaging to see vital body parts, such as the sinuses, other teeth, and nerves.

The removed tooth may be replaced by a dental implant, dental bridge, or denture. Your dentist will discuss these options with you further.

Tooth extractions are highly successful in preventing infection from spreading throughout the mouth, preparing patients for orthodontic procedures, and stopping complications that typically arise from wisdom teeth.

Call us today to learn more or to schedule your long-awaited tooth extraction appointment. With eight years of experience, we have the skills necessary to make your tooth extraction experience a simple and seamless one! We also offer wisdom tooth extraction services.

The Tooth Extraction Process and Post-Surgical Care

When we extract teeth at West Town Dental Care, we follow a regular process that allows us to make your tooth removal cause little or no discomfort. We begin the process before extraction by giving you a local anesthetic to numb the area where we plan to remove your tooth.

Once we remove the tooth, we seal the area with dissolvable or removable stitches. If we use dissolvable stitches, you don’t have to worry about getting them removed since they will dissolve over time. If we use removable stitches, we’ll determine when you should come back to have them taken out.

After surgery, it’s important for you to relax. You should place gauze pads over the area and replace them regularly and as needed. Take the painkillers we prescribe and only eat soft foods until the area heals.

Avoid smoking, using a straw, physical activity, lying flat, and touching the area because these things will delay the healing process and prolong recovery time.

"Dr.O was Awesome. Had a root canal done today. Didn’t feel a thing. I go back in 2 weeks, hopefully nothing but greatness! I was really nervous due to other people telling me about their experiences with root canals. This is my 1st time here, hopefully my new dentist.

"I couldn't be any happier with my experience at West Town Dental. I arrived about 15 mins before my appointment and was already being seen about 10 mins before my scheduled time. Dr. Ogando took care of 4 fillings I needed. He was extremely kind and easy to talk with. He answered any and all questions I had. The hygienist, Sky, gave me an amazing cleaning and was an artist with her tools. Super impressed by the kindness of all the staff and highly recommend."
