Leominster & Gardner MA
A patient can require a tooth extraction procedure for a variety of reasons. Here at Central Mass Oral Surgery, our oral surgeons extract teeth due to extreme decay, damage, facial trauma, or other oral health complications. Drs. Colarusso, Baran and Kobakov are all experienced in the removal of teeth. In some cases, our oral surgeons will meet with you for an oral exam and consultation to review the treatment plan before deciding on an extraction procedure. The removal of teeth can lead to other oral procedures including placement of dental implants or a full-arch prosthesis (denture). Tooth extraction procedures are a last resort, as our oral surgeons work hard to keep as many of your original teeth in place as possible. When a tooth extraction is necessary, Central Mass Oral Surgery makes it our priority to restore your oral health and confidence in smiling.
Common Causes for Tooth Extractions
A few conditions that can lead to an extraction of multiple teeth are dental crowding, periodontal disease, and tooth decay.
- Dental crowding may develop when teeth begin to grow or erupt into a jaw space that is too small. These teeth can become impacted if they are unable to reach full development when emerging from the gums. In other cases, extra teeth grow into the mouth and require an extraction so that the other teeth can grow in properly.
- Periodontal disease is gum disease that can affect the tissues located underneath and around your teeth. This type of infection can lead to tooth loosening and eventually an extraction procedure.
- Tooth decay often develops in patients who are not able to maintain proper oral hygiene habits or regular checkups with their dentist. In some cases, illnesses can cause severe dental decay. When caught late, tooth decay can lead to an infection that can spread to other parts of the mouth, leading to additional oral complications.
Our office is available to assist you in scheduling your consultation with our oral surgeons at your earliest convenience. If you or your dentist notices one of the conditions above, don’t hesitate to contact one of our offices.
Contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
Our caring and dedicated staff can't wait to hear from you!
Tooth Extraction Procedure
We will discuss your anesthesia treatment options for your procedure. If the tooth extraction procedure is complicated or requires the removal of many teeth, we may require the use of anesthesia or additional procedures, such as bone grafting, to preserve long-term oral health.
Extractions are in-office procedures that take less than an hour. After administering anesthesia to prevent any discomfort, your surgeon will rock the tooth back and forth to loosen the tooth before removal. Sometimes the surgeon will break the tooth into pieces to make the removal process easier. We often perform restorative procedures, such as dental implant placement, immediately following the extraction or after a healing period.

Our team in Leominster, MA, and Gardner, MA, understand that a tooth extraction procedure can be an emotional step for patients. At the end of the day, our oral surgeons’ highest goal is to restore the patient’s full smile and oral health. We invite you to call our office to schedule a consultation and discuss your restorative options following an extraction procedure.

Patient Review by Aiden D
Staff was very pleasant from the woman at the desk who checked us in, the dental assistants who handle the x-rays and prep before we saw the doctor and the doctor himself. Everything was efficient, the office was super clean, and we left in a very short amount of time with a game plan. Very pleased!

Patient Review by Jim H
I had broken a crown, and was sent over for a root extraction. I was a little nervous, but the staff was very friendly. Mariah assisted with the procedure, and was very pleasant and calming. Dr. Colarusso was spot on. He talked me through the worst of it, and I really didn't feel a thing. One dollar under my pillow in the morning!

Patient Review by Austin C
Two extractions on difficult teeth. I had a major jaw injury many years ago and have had a lot of work required since then. Based on having to remove two difficult teeth, the procedure went great. I have less after procedure pain than I have had with less extensive procedures in the past at other locations. The staff was great to work with from scheduling to completion. I got a follow up call the next day to see how things were going. I have already recommended CMOS to a friend.

Patient Review by Jennifer F
Dr K and his team are exceptional. My son was very nervous. They talked him through, let him ask questions and did not rush him. They engaged him in conversation about things he likes to ease his mind. They use such care and thought. I am very grateful.

Patient Review by Jillian A
I’ve gone to CMOS several times over the years and each time has been a great experience. Each staff member is always very kind and helpful. Their office is very responsive and have always been able to get me in for an appointment very quickly. They are very thorough with discharge instructions and always follow up to check on you. I never have to call and ask questions about medications, timing, etc. which makes recovery much easier. I have severe dental anxiety and they have always been so wonderful at putting me at ease and making me feel better/comfortable. Due to bad dental experiences in my past I am very picky about where I go. Dr. Colarusso has been and will continue to be the only person I’ll go to ever since my first time seeing him for my wisdom teeth as a teen. His work is always beyond exceptional, I have never had any issues or negative affects from any procedure, and have always healed very well from the various surgical tooth extractions, implants, etc. that I’ve had done. They are truly the best and I recommend everyone I know to them!
