Tooth Extractions

We Make Tooth Extractions Easy

Severely infected and damaged teeth must be removed because they risk the health of your other teeth and oral structures if left alone. Teeth must also often be removed when you suffer from dental crowding, a condition where you have too many teeth or your teeth are just too close together. There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, which makes the procedure extremely common in our office.

If necessary, we will take 3D scans of your mouth using i-CAT™ scanning technology. This will show us the precise location and angle of your teeth and assist us in creating a personalized, detailed treatment plan.

Extracting a Tooth

From tooth decay and dental crowding to facial injuries and other oral health problems, there are many reasons why teeth fail. If a general dentist cannot restore the tooth with a filling, crown, or root canal, the tooth may require removal. Tooth extraction is often necessary to preserve the health of the mouth and surrounding teeth.

As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Robert Bryan, and Dr. Jeremy Goodson are experts in the evaluation and removal of damaged teeth. Their expertise in tooth restoration, such as the placement of dental implants, makes them a fantastic option for treatment in the Oklahoma City metro area. At Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma, we perform tooth extractions routinely in our practice and provide a variety of options for tooth replacement to restore our patients' oral health, function, and smile.

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

Patients visit our office to remove teeth for a variety of reasons, including those listed below:

  • Gum disease
  • Extreme tooth decay
  • Fractures or other injuries
  • Dental crowding
  • To make room for implants or dentures

No matter what the cause, our oral surgeons are skilled in the removal of teeth and utilize minimally invasive techniques to lessen post-surgical swelling and ensure a quick recovery from the procedure. Before undergoing a tooth extraction, Dr. Bryan, and Dr. Goodson will complete a thorough oral examination and plan the right method for removal. We will also help you determine which form of anesthesia or sedation is right for you during this consultation. Our surgeons have years of experience performing teeth extractions and have undergone extensive training to administer many different types of anesthesia.

We perform dental extractions at our state-of-the-art facility in Oklahoma City, OK, using highly detailed i-CAT™ 3D scanning technology. If a general dentist recommends tooth extraction, we will schedule you for the first available appointment and develop a treatment plan to meet your oral health needs.

Restoration After Tooth Extraction

Restoration After Tooth Extraction

Missing teeth can lead to a host of dental problems, including jaw bone deterioration and the shifting of healthy teeth. That is why our doctors recommend replacing your tooth with the proper restorative treatment. During your initial consultation, our surgical team will provide you with all of your restoration options for your missing tooth. If you select a dental implant as your restorative treatment, we can often place it at the time of your tooth extraction.

To learn more about your extraction and restoration options, please contact Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma to schedule your initial consultation. Dr. Bryan, and Dr. Goodson will provide you with all of the information needed to select the restorative option that is right for your mouth and smile.

"I had a problem with one of my front teeth. The tooth had been root canalled several times, and my dentist had suggested that I get it removed and fixed, and Dr. Goodson said the same thing — that we needed to take it out and do an implant. The staff here did a great job of making me feel at ease, and the process was really easy and painless. They explained everything very well. They provide you with an explanation beforehand, before you start the surgery. The procedure was on time; Dr. Goodson was always on time. Next thing I knew, we were in the waiting room recovering and ready to go home. The recovery really was quite easier than I had anticipated. There weren't any complications, and I was recovered in two days. From a standpoint of functionality and aesthetics, it feels good. Nobody has indicated that they noticed anything different about my smile or my teeth. I certainly would recommend anyone to come here for any oral surgery that they may need to have in the Oklahoma City or Edmond, OK, area."

"I had an abscess in one of my lower jaw teeth that began to be a problem and learned from my local dentist that it needed to be extracted and would probably require an implant. I had lots of questions and a lot of anxiety, but I knew Dr. Bryan, and I knew that he was able to put my mind at ease, and I had all the confidence in the world that he could handle the issue. His reputation is impeccable. His honesty and integrity are beyond question. The staff here has just been exceptional. I would highly recommend Dr. Bryan."

"I came to Oklahoma Oral Surgery because Dr. Goodson is a good friend of mine, and I had a broken tooth, and he was the first person I contacted. He advised me of a new procedure that allows an extraction and an implant to be placed in the same day, which cut the recovery time down in half. I left with minimal pain. I was actually able to return to work the same day. It was really quick and easy. Dr. Goodson, apart from being a really good friend, he’s a really great doctor. He makes everyone that walks in feel really comfortable. It’s always nice to have a friendly face there who can calm you down and make you feel like everything’s going to be okay. If you had to get a dental implant, I would say to call Dr. Goodson immediately. He’s, as far as I’m concerned, the best in the business."

"I had a fractured tooth, number 19. My general dentist and I decided that it would probably be a better plan to go have it extracted and then have Dr. Bryan do an implant on it. He’s a very professional person. The whole staff is very professional. They tell you what they’re going to do to you when they take you back, and the whole operatory — you can tell — is just very well-kept, sterile, and it just puts you at ease with everything. If you needed to have just a regular extraction done or an implant or anything else that he does as far as bone grafting, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else."

"I had a tooth that went bad, and I was going to lose it, and we couldn't save the tooth, so when I came to see Dr. Bryan, the dental implant was the way to go. And if I had to do it again, I would do it all over. Well, when I walked in the door to Dr. Bryan's office, I felt very comfortable with the staff. They made you feel at home, and when I met Dr. Bryan, we just hit it off. He really cared about me, and he took me through the process, and it couldn't have been better. I had no pain whatsoever through the whole experience. I mean, he is a credit to this profession, and I'd highly recommend for anybody to come see him."
