Sometimes A Tooth Extraction Is Needed
While it is never pleasant to lose a tooth, over 74 percent of American adults have lost at least one tooth within their lifetime. Our doctors will always try to save your natural teeth. In extreme circumstances, tooth extractions may be the best option to save your oral health and prevent both future problems and pain from occurring.
Another common reason you may require tooth extraction is due to the development of wisdom teeth. As wisdom teeth grow in, they cause a variety of problems if not removed by qualified dental professionals.
Advanced Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are extra molars that develop in the back of the mouth during the late teenage years. Wisdom teeth often do not have adequate space to grow properly and can become impacted. Impacted teeth damage your surrounding teeth, easily become infected, or cause your bite to shift as teeth become crowded.
Our team is experienced in wisdom teeth extraction and has the technology and surgical suite to perform the tooth extractions in-house. We offer advanced sedation, including IV sedation with a board-certified anesthesiologist, to make your surgery comfortable and anxiety-free. Choosing an experienced and educated team is important to ensure the wisdom teeth are removed successfully without damage to the jaw or nerves as well as to improve healing.
Gentle Tooth Extraction
We do everything in our power to save your natural teeth, whether it be through root canal treatment, dental crowns or tooth bonding, but if a tooth cannot be saved, extraction is often the last resort. During tooth extraction in McKinney, TX, most patients only require local anesthetic to block sensations of pain, feeling simply light pressure at the extraction location.
For most tooth extractions, we perform socket preservation bone grafting to fill the empty area with sturdy bone. In some cases, our doctors perform a tooth extraction and replace it with a dental implant that very same day, cutting down on the need for multiple appointments, procedures and additional costs.
Common Reasons For A Tooth Extraction
- Wisdom teeth
- Impacted teeth
- Severe tooth pain
- Damaged or broken teeth
- Severe tooth infection
- Replacement with dental implants

We believe that every patient has a right to our very best.
