Tooth extractions with most modern technology and techniques.

We will make your dental tooth extraction an easily forgotten experience

Nobody wants to get a tooth pulled. It’s one of the last things we’d think of wanting to do on a random day. Tooth extraction can cause anxiety, from minor to extreme.

That’s why our entire process here at Aspire Family Dentistry is geared toward making our patients (you!) feel as calm, cool and collected as possible. We know dental trauma can be almost as serious as the actual pain.

Our first goal is almost always to repair the tooth to full health, but sometimes that’s not possible. When such is the case, removing a tooth from the socket, exodontia (technical term for tooth extraction) is a possible solution.

When You Should Have A Tooth Extracted, or “Pulled”

Trauma and/or Damage

Caused by physical damage or long-term decay, once a tooth loosens enough, extraction may be the only choice.

Orthodontic Issues

A range of orthodontic treatments may include tooth extractions in order to provide room for a more harmonious alignment of teeth.

Useless & Wrongly Positioned

At times, adult teeth are not aligned correctly within the mouth, requiring removal.

Too Many Teeth

Extra teeth aren’t just a pain, they create long-term problems by using space needed by other teeth.

Radiation & Chemotherapy

These serious medical procedures for cancer patients may sometimes necessitate tooth extraction.

Useless & Wrongly Positioned

Some medications and other medical processes can increase the potential for dental health issues, eventually requiring tooth extraction.

Types of Tooth Extraction

Simple Extractions

When the tooth is visible and accessible to the dentist, simple extractions can be the best solution. These usually include a local anesthetic, and sometimes sedation and anti-anxiety medications.

Surgical Extractions

When a tooth is NOT visible and accessible, it may have broken below the gum line, or may have never risen above it in the first place. In these cases, surgery may be necessary for bone removal, as well as lifting or folding gum tissue while performing the tooth extraction. Local anesthesia and sedation are possible.

Nobody wants to think about it, but let’s be honest: wisdom teeth removal is a fact of life for most at some point in life. While the time often comes in young adults, that’s not always the case. It’s a serious but common procedure in which our dentist and staff come highly recommended due to both training and experience.

Extracting wisdom teeth before they are completely developed helps avoid complications like impacted teeth. This painful condition occurs when an impacted tooth is given no room to grow.

This may cause tooth delay, oral infection, bite irregularities, and serious issues like periodontitis (gum disease). Wisdom teeth extraction may also occur at different points in life to make room for orthodontic treatments.

I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
