Teeth Extractions in Overland Park, KS

At Haake Family Dental, our award-winning team will work hard to save and restore your tooth. In some cases, however, a tooth extraction may be necessary to preserve your overall dental health. If you’re suffering from a severely injured or infected tooth, our dentist may recommend extraction. We also offer wisdom tooth extractions.

Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?

Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent molars to emerge. These teeth are also the most likely to require extraction, due to any of several complications. However, other teeth may also require extraction if they cannot be saved by root canal treatment or other tooth-saving procedures. Some of the most common reasons to have teeth extracted include:

  • Impacted tooth: When the tooth is trapped beneath bone or gums and not emerging properly.
  • Crowding or small mouth: Emerging teeth may cause other teeth to shift or crack due to lack of space.
  • Decay or infection: When a tooth is affected by extreme decay or infection that cannot be corrected with filling or root canal treatment, it may require extraction.

Our doctors may recommend extraction of one or more of your teeth if any of these issues apply to you. During your consultation, we may also recommend sedation dentistry to make your experience more comfortable.

Post-Extraction Care

After your extraction, you will need to be driven home by a friend or family member. You will require rest, but be sure to lie with your head propped on a pillow to prevent prolonged bleeding..

We will apply gauze when your extraction is complete. When it becomes soaked, change it for a fresh piece. Use pain medication and ice pack as directed for pain and swelling. If bleeding continues beyond 24 hours, contact our office immediately.

For the first few days following extraction, limit your diet to soft foods. Avoid smoking or using a straw, as the pressures created by these actions can slow clotting and loosen sutures. For more information or an extraction consultation, contact our office.

I have been going to Dr. Haake for a really long time and have always had a really good experience. I always get really great dental hygienists and love that you can pick a Pandora station before they start. I will continue to refer and will be taking my little boys to see Dr. Haake once they are of age to go!

Excellent experience from walking in the door to leaving. I had a 10:50 appointment and at 10:50 I was in the chair. The staff and dentist do their best to make your visit a positive experience. Both Dr. Haake and Dr. Boydston made my 2 visits there a great experience.
