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.

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."
John Reviews His Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
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."
Mark Reviews His Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"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."
Mike Reviews His Tooth Extraction ProcedureWatch Review
"I did what's called a vertical fracture down to the root, and I called Dr. Bryan and said, "Hey, this is what's going on. I'm experiencing pain. Do you mind setting up a time for me so that I could come in and have it looked at?" It was two days later I came in and had the tooth extracted. Some places, you have to wait three or four weeks before you can even get an appointment. They do tend to try to bend over backward to get you accommodated. Dr. Bryan's bedside manner — he's pretty jovial in terms of joking around and making you feel comfortable. He takes pride in getting to the know the patient on a personal level. I would highly recommend Dr. Bryan for anyone that needs dental implants."
