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 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."

"My teeth were crowding. Before I had ortho, my lower teeth were super crowded, so when my wisdom teeth started to grow in, it was pushing my lower teeth forward, and so it was causing TMJ problems. Before the surgery, we had an appointment; they went over everything for me just to make sure that I was comfortable, and I'd be ready for the surgery. When I walked in, the staff was very friendly. They greeted me; they welcomed me. Dr. Bryan is very nice, and he made me feel very comfortable. Everything went great. The recovery went great. They called me afterward just to check on me. I would highly recommend Dr. Bryan and Dr. Goodson. They're great."

"I was missing quite a few teeth on the upper right side, and then I had discoloration of the teeth at the front, and so I wanted them all to match, and the recommendation was for the dental implants. It was annoying because I really couldn't chew on my right side like I should, so my main focus was chewing on the front teeth, as well as the few that I had on the left side, which was causing discomfort. Well, I was a little nervous at first because I knew that I was going to have to lose all of my upper teeth, but right now, I feel totally confident that it was the right decision for me. They called periodically just to see how I was doing throughout the week, and if I needed anything, they were right there. I felt like it was exceptional care. Dr. Bryan is a great person, and I would recommend him to anyone. This practice in general, I would just recommend them to anyone. It's a major difference. I can really eat now. I'm glad I made this decision. I really am."

"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 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."
