Tooth Extractions

At St. Louis South Oral Surgery, Dr. Steven Hribernik and Dr. William Gray realize that having a tooth extracted can produce discomfort and anxiety. The doctors and staff will do everything they can to minimize your discomfort and gently and compassionately assist you throughout the process. It is important for you to understand the various reasons why the oral surgeon feels an extraction is necessary.

Extractions can be performed in the office using local anesthesia, with or without general anesthesia.

Reasons for tooth extraction:

  • Severe decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease

  • Non-repairable crack
  • Broken and cannot be repaired
  • Abscess (infection)
  • Inadequate room in the jaw (dental crowding)
  • Poor position (impacted teeth)
  • In preparation for orthodontic treatment
