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.

Reviews From Our Tooth Extraction Patients
Dan Reviews His Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
Donald Reviews His Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
Rosalind Reviews Her Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
Crystal Reviews Her Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
Pam Reviews Her Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
