Danbury Tooth Extractions
Advanced General Dentistry
When your teeth are severely damaged or infected, our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction procedure. While our goal is preventing the need for any removal, in some cases, an extraction may be necessary to save your surrounding tooth structure and preserve your oral health. Dr Marks has done countless extractions and takes on every procedure as gently and carefully as possible.

What Is the Extraction Procedure?
Extractions are done surgically or non-surgically depending on the condition of your tooth. A surgical extraction is done when a tooth is not easily accessible because it hasn’t fully broken through, or it has broken under the gum line. To begin the extraction, an incision is made to access the tooth and a stitch is placed afterwards to help healing. Non-surgical extractions require dental-type tweezers for careful tooth removal. Local anesthesia may be given to relieve the pain.
The most common reasons for dental extractions include:
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Badly fractured or decayed teeth
- To make room for an orthodontic treatment
Following a tooth extraction, bleeding may occur during the first hour; however, we will have you bite on cotton gauze to minimize the oozing. The dental socket will take roughly a week to heal and it will fill in with soft gum tissue over the next one to two months. The final socket closure with bond remodeling can take six months or longer to fully heal, but this should be unnoticed by patients.
