Dental Extractions are important procedures involving the removal of a tooth that has been seriously damaged, infected, or otherwise harmed. Sometimes extractions are required to prevent excessive crowding inside the mouth and to ensure that surrounding teeth remain strong and healthy.
Far from being a harmful course of treatment, an extraction can dramatically improve oral health. A tooth extraction might be a necessary part of achieving the ultimate outcomes of dental care. In fact, extractions are often very routine procedures and may be the correct course of treatment for many different reasons, such as:
The entire team at Oral Health Associates is here to ensure that everyone we treat receives exceptional care at every visit.

The family dentists at Green Bay’s Oral Health Associates are dedicated to providing our patients with an easy and comfortable dental extraction experience. Our team will first conduct a comprehensive examination of the tooth and surrounding area to evaluate if it can be restored or if the best course of action is to extract the tooth.
During your tooth extraction procedure, our team will first make sure you are thoroughly numbed using one of our dental sedation options, although you may still feel a small pressure. One of our Green Bay family dentists will then use specialized dental instruments to elevate and loosen your tooth. Once the tooth has been removed, we will then sterilize the area and cover the area with gauze to help the surrounding gums heal and prevent infections.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of adult molars that erupt in the back of your mouth. Sometimes they grow in properly and don’t need to be removed, however, for most patients, their wisdom teeth will become partially or fully trapped in their gums or jawbone which can result in pain, infection, cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
If you’re experiencing discomfort or pain in your back teeth, it could be time to consider wisdom teeth extraction. As your trusted family dentist in Green Bay, we offer professional and safe wisdom teeth removal services to help alleviate your pain and prevent further dental problems. Our experienced dentists use the latest techniques and equipment to remove wisdom teeth safely and effectively, minimizing any potential complications or discomfort. Don’t wait until the pain becomes unbearable – schedule a consultation with us today to discuss your options for your wisdom teeth.
Once a tooth has been extracted, the site is immediately covered with sterile gauze. Patients can apply gentle pressure to the site to staunch bleeding. Some pain and discomfort may occur, and this can generally be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. We may prescribe an antibiotic to help with healing. Ice packs can be used to relieve swelling.
Often an extracted tooth can be replaced by our Green Bay dentists with a dental implant. This helps preserve the natural beauty of your smile and prevent further oral health problems. Our cosmetic dentists will work with you to find a dental prosthetic that works within your family’s budget while helping you achieve a more healthy, beautiful smile. These options include:
