Tooth Extraction

The Best in Patient Care

Although every effort will be made to preserve your natural teeth, there are instances when a tooth extraction is necessary to preserve your oral health. A tooth extraction is performed when a tooth has been given a hopeless prognosis due to factors such as infection, fracture, decay and periodontal disease.
You can rest assured that Dr. Rasmussen will provide personalized care using the most minimally invasive techniques and cutting-edge technology available.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to develop and break through your gums. Though not all people develop wisdom teeth, the majority of those who do will typically have them erupt between ages 17 - 25
As wisdom teeth emerge, they can cause a variety of negative impacts on your oral health, including an increased risk of developing infections, cysts, jaw and nerve damage, and even tumors. To avoid developing unnecessary complication, we recommend wisdom teeth removal for patients 14 year of age and older. Even if patients have fully exposed wisdom teeth, we recommend that they be evaluated. Fully exposed wisdom teeth are located at the back of your mouth and are very difficult to keep clean. Although you may not feel any pain, due to their location there is a higher risk of developing periodontal disease.

Tooth Extraction with Ridge Preservation

When a tooth or teeth need to be extracted, it is always best to have the procedure performed in the most minimally invasive manner possible. An extraction performed without precision can lead to less than ideal functional and esthetic results.
Once a tooth has been removed, it is natural for the jawbone to shrink, losing up to 60% of its volume in the first 6 months. To prevent this rapid deterioration of bone from occurring, ridge preservation is performed. As the name suggests, ridge preservation involves the placement of a bone graft in the socket at the time of tooth removal, preserving / maintaining the healthy volume of the jawbone. This not only allows for the future placement of a dental implant, but maintains healthy bone around the adjacent teeth and provides better esthetics.

Extraction with Immediate Implant

In many cases, Dr. Rasmussen can place a single implant or multiple implants at the time of tooth extraction. This saves healing time and can minimize the number of surgeries needed to arrive at the final outcome. This technique can also assist in developing the esthetics of the surrounding gum tissue.
In select cases, Dr. Rasmussen can attach a temporary tooth to the implant at the time of placement. This eliminates the need for an interim removable tooth and improves esthetics and function, especially in cases involving a front tooth that can be seen when you smile.

Patient Feedback

"Dr. Ramussen was simply amazing. I got my wisdom tooth extracted, and I was extremely nervous. Everyone was so nice to me from the very first visit. They text you and answer any questions you may have prior to surgery. His entire staff is bomb! His dental assistant had the best energy the morning of my surgery and was so comforting. It literally took less than 5 mins and I don’t have any pain or discomfort. I highly recommend!"
Kimesha Norris
"I had two wisdom teeth removed (one was broken and hurt so bad) and if anyone can make that a great experience it’s Dr. Rasmussen and his entire staff! Honestly, blown away with how I had such an awesome experience getting teeth removed! I followed all the easy instructions to a tee and had ZERO issues. All pain instantly gone, no swelling, or discomfort afterwards. My anxiety was through the roof and they completely controlled the situation and made it so easy for me. I can’t thank them enough for making this such a great experience. I am so very thankful."
Danielle Dean
"I visited 3 Periodontics to take care of my impacted wisdom teeth. I feel like Rasmussen had some of the better technology as far as scans. They came up with a solution that was different from other doctors I had visit and felt very comfortable choosing them as a my provider.
Thanks everyone"
