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.

"Well, I had a tooth — a molar — that was loose, and a considerable amount of bone loss through the years. They extracted the molar, let that heal, prepared the site for the implant surgery. Dr. Goodson really put me at ease. Whatever questions I had were answered. It was very thoughtful, the procedure, and I've had great success since the surgery. I wish all my teeth were as strong as my implant. I had a great experience here. Really nice staff. Very thoughtful with their preparation before surgery. If I ran into somebody who was having problems with their teeth, and we got on the subject of implants, I would highly recommend Dr. Goodson and Dr. Bryan because of their expertise in the area of implants."

"I had an abscess under the tooth that was cracked, so I came to see Dr. Goodson. And so I was a little anxious about it, but he is so gentle and so nice and he sits down and he talks with you. He just walks you through it and he was very reassuring. Really, he has been so gentle and so easygoing. I never had one pain, not one bit of pain. The people that work with him are so friendly and so nice. I’ve enjoyed being here. I would come back again."

"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 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 know Dr. Bryan personally, but I had an emergency tooth extraction that I needed, and I called him, and he saw me the same day and got the tooth out. I had a pleasant experience; I was in and out within an hour or so. I didn't feel any pain — I didn't feel anything. And I really don't know what exactly he gave me, but he gave me a shot in the gums, and when I finally came to, he was done. After he pulled the tooth, we talked about having implant surgery done, and we agreed to do it, and I came in later for a consultation, and the whole process has been wonderful. It's not just him, it's the entire office staff — they're wonderful people. I go to church with Dr. Bryan, so I've known him for quite some time, and him and his entire family are just wonderful people. If I knew someone that was needing any kind of oral procedure that required an oral surgeon, I would highly recommend Dr. Rob Bryan. He's been wonderful."
