Extractions & Oral Surgery

Home » Garden Valley Services » Extractions & Oral Surgery

Extractions and oral surgery are one of the most common procedures performed by Dr. Antolin. An extraction may be considered when a tooth is damaged beyond repair or its surrounding gum is diseased. During this procedure, the tooth is completely removed from its socket and pulled out. This process can take a couple of minutes or just a couple of seconds, depending on the case.



Dental extractions are often necessary to prevent further damage to a tooth or to relieve pain. But before performing the procedure, your dentist should assess whether there’s enough healthy tooth structure left around the damaged tooth to allow for placement of a dental implant, bridge, or other restoration.


Your dentist may recommend tooth extraction if you have:

  • Severe tooth decay (cavities).
  • A fractured tooth.
  • An impacted tooth.
  • Crowded teeth.
  • Severe gum disease.
  • Tooth luxation or other dental injuries.


When you need to have a tooth removed, your dentist will likely recommend an extraction. There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be taken out. If your tooth is too badly damaged for repair, or if it’s impacting other teeth, your dentist may suggest extracting it. Depending on the situation, your doctor may use local anesthesia or sedation to keep you comfortable and help relax your jaw muscles, allowing for easier removal of the tooth.

Excellent experience with amazing results and truly wonderful staff all around! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted and the staff make you feel welcome and even calm the nerves. I am always so nervous when visiting dentists and the staff take the time to also explain what you are in for. I went in for a teeth whitening, something I have been so nervous about and Dr. Rhea Antolin is so calming and reassuring about the process. I could not believe how white my teeth were after one session so I decided to come back for another. You will not be disappointed with your results and the entire experience will be smooth and worth it!
