Tooth Extraction Reviews

Teeth are in constant contact with bacteria, which makes them extremely susceptible to infection. In addition, teeth are prone to damage if they are not treated correctly. When teeth become too damaged or infected, your dentist may not be able to repair them with usual methods, such as fillings, crowns, and root canals. In these situations, you will likely be referred to an oral surgeon for a tooth extraction.

Tooth extractions are also recommended when there are too many teeth in the mouth, causing crowding, or for children preparing to have braces on. Regardless of the cause, you can feel confident that our doctors will perform your procedure safely and efficiently. To hear more about the extraction experience at our office, feel free to watch the patient testimonials below.

“I came here because I had a very painful toothache a couple years ago. I got here right away, and they were very nice to me, and I only had to wait about five minutes, and then they brought me in. Dr. Colarusso was very nice. He helped me a lot. The other person that was in the room with me just kept talking to me and said that I would do fine and asked me what I was going to do the rest of the weekend and got me distracted from what as actually happening in my mouth. It was very quick, and I got my tooth right out, and it felt much better after that. I would go to Central Mass Oral Surgery.

“I had fake teeth since I was in 7th grade, and Dr. Colarusso — I’m the landscaper here — he told me I couldn’t walk around here with teeth like that. So he basically told me I was coming in, and he was taking my teeth out. I had a bad bite, and he was going to fix me up. My bite, I couldn’t close, so I would eat a sandwich, and I’d be able to pull, and the bread would cut off, but the meat would basically come out. It was a Thursday morning, I believe, I went up to the Gardner office, he took out my teeth in about ten minutes. I was there for probably half an hour, did all my implant work. I had a flipper, and a couple months later, I had teeth implanted in my head. Oh, it’s awesome. It’s one of the best things I’ve done. Dr. Colarusso is a joker, and we had a good time, and he keeps you very relaxed and calm, and it’s a great situation. Oh, I would recommend Dr. Colarusso and CMOS anytime I have to refer someone.”

“I came to Central Mass Oral Surgery due to my father needing three teeth extractions. I made a phone call on Monday, and Central Mass was kind enough to fit my father in two days later. I felt like they went out of their way to accommodate my father — 87, frail, and was in excruciating pain. Dad’s procedure went amazing. In fact, the only disappointing part was I thought it was going to take a little bit longer since I was in the VIP room and hadn’t even finished my cup of coffee yet. Dr. Colarusso is a superstar. He was just professional from start to finish — great guy. The staff here is absolutely fabulous. Everyone is so friendly. They know your name, they welcome you. It’s just a really great experience from start to finish. I would tell my friends and family that there is no other place to go except Central Mass Oral Surgery.”

“I had had a nasty infection from being treated elsewhere, and I needed a sinus lift, and I needed a dental implant. The moment I met Dr. Colarusso, I have to tell you that his confidence, his smile, his grace, his whole manner and demeanor really made me relax and feel like I’d found the right place — and I did. The procedure was like a blink. It was simple; it was quick. The recovery has been phenomenal. I’ve no discomfort. I’m able to smile with confidence, and I look forward to the next implant. He gave me back my smile that I had lost for a long time, and it’s probably one of the best experiences of my life.”

“I came to Central Mass Oral Surgery because I had a second molar in desperate need of an extraction. My procedure, which was only done a week ago, went very, very well. Dr. Colarusso is quite the artist at what he does and puts his patients’ minds at ease. My recovery has been incredible. There has been very, very minimal discomfort, and the office calls my house to check up on me. The staff at Dr. Colarusso’s office is incredible. Also, as you enter the practice, there’s a very warm, welcoming feeling from the staff. Dr. Colarusso is an incredible oral surgeon. He is very good at what he does, puts his patients at ease, and has an excellent bedside manner. If any of my friends or family needed to have an extraction done, I would recommend that they see Dr. Colarusso without a question of a doubt.”

“After I retired, I wanted to get a full dental makeover, and I knew it was going to be time-consuming, so I needed that time allotment to do it. The first procedure would be extractions of some teeth, and the second would be the implants. The procedure went great. Six teeth were extracted. I had very little pain. Next day, I felt like brand new. Dr. Colarusso did my procedure here at CMOS. What a great personality — bigger than life, fun, put me at ease, very gentle. Everybody was top-notch friendly, personable, from start to finish. Your mouth — your smile — is so important, and it’s something I always wanted to do. It was like a dream of mine, so getting this done was just incredible.”

“I came to Central Mass Oral Surgery because I was referred by my local dentist. They needed to do extractions, and he said one of the best firms around is Central Mass Oral. I am not a fan of needles, etc., and Dr. Colarusso came in and assured me that I wouldn’t even know, and actually, after the first injection, I didn’t even know I had it. The procedure went very well, and what I find, I think they’re very professional and focused on the patient — their comfort level — and they also explained exactly what they were doing. Dr. Colarusso is, I think, very professional, very courteous, and really focuses really on the patient and puts them first to make sure they understand exactly what’s happening. The staff – their customer service, I will say, is above my expectations. They treat you very well. You’re just not a patient. You’re really a part of — I’ll call it the Central Mass family. Because of the experience I’ve had here with several extractions, to recommend Central Mass Oral Surgery, Dr. Colarusso, and his team would be the first place to go.”

Patient Review by Carol M

I would highly recommend CMOS to friends and family. I had one little glitch, but when i called the office about it after my procedure it was taken care of immediately. I had filled out the pre- registration form saying that I am somewhat allergic to makes me vomit. My prescriptions were filled for Hydrocodone, which unbeknownst to me is actually Vicodin. My son told me. I called the office and asked to please switch it to Tylenol with codeine and they did. CVS central ST would not take the Vicodin back, but directed me to CVS Nelson St to return it .

Patient Review by Susanne H

Though Christine at the front desk was a bit cold and abrupt, but she was very polite. Didn't get any warm vibes from her. EVERYONE ELSE WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. Doc C was professional and thorough - and very funny. He had an easy, approachable manner. Marian was simply lovely. Both of them put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. They kept asking if I was okay - and I certainly was. They both made me feel safe and in very good hands. I trust the staff in this office because of my last visit in 2018 and because of today. I would recommend this professional office to any friend or family member that was looking for a dental surgeon. I was truly impressed . . . so THANK YOU for taking such good care of me and for making my visit today a very positive experience! Susie Haenisch

It was very easy to book and appointment with the office. The scheduler was very friendly and professional. The Gardner office staff were also very professional and made me feel very comfortable. Doctor Baron explained everything that was happening, was very efficient in the extraction, and discussed further options

Patient Review by Valerie M

Dr. Calarusso and his staff are all amazing. I have had a few extraction in his office and implants as well. They are the best and even though he is not in my insurance network I am willing to pay the extra for the trust that I have in Dr. Calaruso. Even though tooth extractions are not something I look forward to I simply trust that Central MASS Oral Surgery and the whole staff there will make me feel comfortable and at ease with the process. It is worth every penny to trust someone who is doing surgery of any kind and I have found that trust at CMOS.

Patient Review by Tyler Y

I called 2 days before a major holiday in extensive pain, tooth pain is the worst pain, I believe. I spoke with Tish directly who stated they were booking out well into January. Tish worked through hoops to get me an earlier appointment and through her work she was able to get me an appointment the next day, and first appointment at that. Kristen was fantastic and personable and very responsive. The Doctor who performed the extraction was nice and answered every question I had and made the extraction quite easy and painless. I would 100% overall recommend CMOS. The whole process from the phone call to the visit was painless and each and every staff member was personable and had a smile!
