Tooth Extractions

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.

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.

Patient Review by Laura B

I have used this office twice before and can’t say enough positive about the staff and the oral surgeons. I am disabled with limited mobility and use a wheel chair. Staff were so kind and supportive.I could not believe how quickly the extraction was done. Dr. Calarusso was fantastic. I received excellent after care information and a call the following morning to check on how I was. This is my go-to place for emergency dental care, they are the best.

Every component of the term "customer focused" is rated superior. Not a single "except for" in the entire sequence from scheduling to the phone call a few hours after I had the procedure. Kudos to the management team. They understand the value of continuous improvement.

Not that getting a tooth pulled is a great experience but the service and staff care were 100% plus. There was no extended wait time, you got right in and they made sure you were comfortable, pain-free, and had all the information you needed. It was actually calming, you felt the Doctor and the rest of the staff took the time time to make sure your were all set.

Patient Review by Matthew S

I was in for a molar extration and it took the doc no more than 5 minutes as a matter a fact it took long for him to give me the local anesthetics. I will definitely go back if i have issues down the road.

The entire procedure was amazing (as far as a tooth extraction goes lol) ! The Dr did a great job and was very attentive to ensure I was in no pain during the procedure. The dental staff in the room were amazing as well. Even while in the recovery room, the staff was amazing there! I would recommend CMOS to anyone in need of dental surgery. Thank you so much!
