Have you noticed swelling, excessive bleeding, or a pimple on your gums? If you act quickly, it may be possible to save your tooth with treatments like a crown or root canal therapy instead of tooth extraction. Protect your oral health by contacting our Orland Park dental office.

Our Dentists Can Help With Multiple Causes for Extraction

Deep Tooth Decay

Many patients are nervous about visiting the dentist if they have tooth decay. Our dental team will never judge you—we just want to help you feel better. We'll kindly explain your options, like fillings and tooth extraction, during your visit.

Root Canal Infections

Time is of the essence when it comes to root canal therapy. Typical signs of an infection include swelling, pus, and pain. If you visit a dentist as soon as possible, root canal therapy and a crown may be enough to repair your smile. Patients who wait may end up needing an extraction instead.

Tooth Trauma

After an accident or any other kind of severe breakage, our dentists' top priority will be to save your tooth. In some cases, though, an extraction may be your only option. Though it may sound scary, we'll keep you comfortable throughout the procedure with anesthesia and sedation.

Wisdom Teeth Impaction

Whether you have impacted wisdom teeth or you're thinking ahead, our Orland Park dentists can help. We can determine the best course of action during an in-depth consultation using advanced dental technology.

How Does Tooth Extraction Work?

Extracting a tooth can improve your oral wellness and alleviate your pain. Once you're in our office, you've done the hard part—we'll take care of the rest.
At our Orland Park, IL, office, you can receive relaxing care with your choice of IV sedation or oral sedation.

After noticing concerns like pus, bleeding, or breakage, you'll visit one of our knowledgeable dentists for a consultation. They can diagnose your dental concern and plan treatment.


Before removing your tooth, we will ensure that the extraction site is numb. If you choose, you can also take a calming oral sedative ahead of time or drift off during your procedure with safe IV sedation.


Once you're fully comfortable, our dentist will begin the tooth extraction procedure. Some teeth come out whole, while others take more time.


We'll give you gauze to protect your extraction site and stop any bleeding. A necessary blood clot will form to help with the healing process. Our team will educate you on how to keep it in place. We may also prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.
