Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction is a procedure through which your tooth is permanently removed from its socket. Tooth extraction can be recommended for various reasons, such as to remove impacted teeth,  remove teeth that are causing gum disease, treat overcrowding, or remove teeth that have decayed beyond salvage.

The team at Strahler Dental Partners specializes in dental extractions in Schertz. While saving your teeth is our top priority, sometimes removal may be what is best for your dental health. We use state-of-the-art equipment to make the tooth extraction process as comfortable and painless as possible.

Our Teeth Extraction Services

At Strahler Dental Partners, we are ready to assist with your teeth extraction needs. We offer a wide range of extraction services, including the following:

Basic Tooth Extraction

Basic tooth extraction is a procedure that entails pulling a tooth that is above the gum line and is visible in the mouth. It is a relatively quick process that can be performed by your dentist in our office. During the procedure, one of our dentists will use various tools to lift and remove the tooth from its socket. The dentist may also use stitches to seal the gums after extracting your tooth.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

This surgical procedure removes one or more of the four wisdom teeth (permanent adult teeth located at the back of the mouth). Wisdom teeth extraction is recommended when wisdom teeth cause serious oral health problems, such as severe pain or infection.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

If wisdom teeth are stuck in the jawbone and unable to grow normally, they may be extracted if all other treatments have failed. Leaving them can cause repeated infections of the gums. Extracting impacted teeth is important as it helps relieve pain and discomfort, reduce the risk of infection, and improve oral health.


Will Tooth Extraction Hurt?

While you may experience some discomfort from an extraction, our dentists will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area and reduce any pain you may experience.

What Are My Options For Replacing Missing Teeth?

There are several options for replacing missing teeth, such as dental implants, partial dentures, and dental crowns and bridges.

When Is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

A tooth extraction is necessary if your tooth is damaged beyond repair due to tooth decay, dental trauma, or gum disease. It can also help fix overcrowded teeth. Overcrowded teeth occupy space on the arch, forcing the surrounding teeth to move or twist inappropriately. Tooth extraction provides sufficient space for proper teeth realignment.

Will Insurance Cover My Tooth Extraction?

Depending on the reason for your extraction, your dental insurance might cover the cost of your treatment. It’s best to contact your insurer to discuss your insurance coverage.
