Dental Extractions

All-on-4

Although dentists usually make every effort to preserve natural teeth, sometimes an extraction is necessary to remove decayed, damaged or otherwise problematic teeth. Although the procedure is best performed in an oral surgeon’s office, it is considered surgery. Depending on which teeth are removed, they may be replaced with a dental implants or another oral prosthetic.

The most common cause of tooth extractions is severe tooth decay and cavities. However, many patients also undergo extractions for impacted teeth – particularly wisdom teeth. Other causes for extraction include advanced periodontal disease, cracked teeth, and teeth that are severely malformed. Although many circumstances that require extraction are unavoidable, some could be prevented with regular visits to the dentist for exams and cleanings.

Do I need a tooth extraction?

Only your dentist can tell you if you need a tooth extraction. However, you may be a candidate for the procedure if one or more of your teeth are decayed so severely that a filling or other restoration is not a possibility for treatment.

What should I expect during my tooth extraction appointment?

If you and your dentist decide to extract one or more teeth, you will be scheduled for oral surgery with the Krupp Center. You will be given a local anesthetic to prevent pain during the procedure, and you may be prescribed medications to help manage pain in the hours following your extraction. Depending on the nature of your extraction and other factors, such as whether your teeth are impacted, you may also be sedated or given general anesthesia during your procedure.

What type of post-treatment care will I need to follow?

Post-operative care following a tooth extraction is essential for healing and preventing complications. You will be instructed to avoid certain foods and also keep the surgical site clean at all times. If you are prescribed an antibiotic, it is important that you complete the course of treatment to prevent infection. Finally, you may be advised to avoid smoking or drinking through a straw, as doing so may delay the healing process and cause a condition known as ‘dry socket.’

  • Dr. Krupp took all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth out at once - in less than 10 minutes! I ended up just having some swelling and discomfort for a few days afterwards and that was it. His office is clean and his staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It was about as great as a surgical experience can be, definitely recommend.

  • Great OMFS center! Customer service was great. We came for my sons impacted wisdom teeth. We got there early and they accommodated us right away. Dr Krupp is a no fuss no nonsense kind of guy and he was very efficient. We were done in no time. Overall a great experience. My son was well taken cared of post op too. He had medications to help with healing, pain and infection prevention.

  • If you come here it's likely to have unpleasant dental work done. I had to have a tooth extracted after a bad root canal followed by four failed root canal retreatments. Since I had four procedures done within two weeks of having it pulled, I was a mess. They instantly put me at ease by providing a stress ball and playing positive music. I found their bedside manner to be perfect and just what I needed. I will need future work done and this is where I will come.

  • I had the best experience here! Katia and Christina was amazing. Dr Krupp was good aswell. He's a surgeon and they usually aren't too chatty...lol I would recommend this facility to everyone I know. I went in crying like a baby about having my wisdom teeth removed and they made me so comfortable. Very clean practice!

  • I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed after being referred to this place by my dentist. Dr. Krupp was my dentist and was SUPER nice. I was knocked out for the whole thing and had no probs at all. They gave me my prescriptions early so I could get them filled before the procedure and wouldn't have to stop on the way home. the place is really upscale and i would def go back if i had to.
