oral surgery in flossmoor homewood ilIf you’re looking for a dentist that provides top-notch tooth extractions, you’re in the right place! Whether it’s wisdom teeth, decayed teeth, or any other condition requiring tooth removal, our expert for oral surgery in Flossmoor & Homewood, IL, provides information on tooth extractions here.

Do You Need a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extractions are performed for a variety of reasons. Here are some common reasons:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth. If your wisdom teeth are growing in abnormally (horizontally, as opposed to vertically), it is called impaction and requires extraction. Allowing impacted wisdom teeth to continue growing is painful and can damage the rest of your teeth as they push together.
  • Extensive damage to a tooth. If you have decaying teeth, or an infection that has spread to the pulp of your tooth, it may be that the damage is too extensive to repair with crowns or fillings. It might be necessary to have them extracted.
  • Crowded mouth. If you simply have teeth that are creating a crowded bite, it may impede your ability to chew and speak properly. Extracting some of the teeth can help the bite become normal and restore proper functioning.

Our dentist can diagnose and help create a treatment plan for you!

What Happens During Extraction?

Our dentist will apply an anesthetic to the area to minimize any pain and discomfort during the procedure. Depending on the reason for the extraction, the process will be unique for each patient.


After your oral surgery procedure, our experts will provide you with complete after care instructions and will advise you to avoid the following until after you have recovered:

  • Sucking through straws
  • Smoking 
  • Hard foods
