Simple Tooth Extractions

Call (847) 882-9448

Reasons for a tooth extraction

There are numerous situations in which a simple extraction can help alleviate pain or prepare you for another cosmetic or restorative procedure.  Some common reasons for extraction include:

  • Advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the tooth roots
  • Extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth
  • Preparing a patient for orthodontic treatment
  • Removing a fractured or malformed tooth
  • Severe tooth decay which cannot be remedied with root canal therapy

Your extraction visit

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your appointment:

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable 
  • A list of all medications you are presently taking
  • Medical and dental insurance cards, if applicable; and a photo ID
  • Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc). We may need to consult with your medical physician prior to scheduling surgery.
