Extractions

At Excel Dental, Drs. Davis and Matthews perform an extraction (tooth removal) due to disease, trauma, or crowded teeth. If a patient is making the transition to dentures, extractions will also be performed.

Drs. Davis and Matthews will provide anesthetic to numb the area prior to the extraction to aid with any discomfort. Most patients may experience pressure but little to no pain with extractions. After the extraction, a blood clot will slowly begin forming to fill in the bone where the tooth root was and aid in healing of the space.

If you have questions or concerns about extractions, please call Excel Dental to schedule an appointment today! Our team would love to guide you in your pursuit to smiling healthy®!
