tooth extractions in maple grove, mn

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are a removal of the entire tooth. We may recommend extractions when your tooth cannot because of decay or infection.  Here at Reflections Dental, we specialize in making urgent dental care easy and pain free to get you back to life as usual. 


Tooth extraction causes

Are you wondering if you really need a tooth extraction? We recommend a tooth extraction only when necessary and for overall oral health. 


Tooth Decay

Decay is a leading cause of tooth extraction. While we will try to repair your tooth through fillings or a crown, we may find that there is too much damage to your tooth and recommend an extraction. 


Crowded Mouth

An overcrowded mouth can create bite and other dental health issues. We recommend tooth extractions to prepare for orthodontics or if overcrowding is affecting your bite. 



A tooth infection can be a serious health issue and can require a tooth extraction to ensure oral health. 


What to expect at your
tooth extraction

Emergency dental care can be stressful, but knowing what to expect can help. Here at Reflections Dental Care, our goal is to make your tooth extraction as pain free as possible.


Local Anesthetic

We'll start with local anesthetic to numb the area and keep you pain free during the procedure. If your tooth is impacted, we may require general anesthesia, but we'll make this determination during your exam.

Once your tooth is extracted, we will apply packing to stop the bleeding and may use dissolvable stitches to help the healing process. 


Infection Protocols

With any tooth extraction, there is a slight chance of infection. We'll arm you with the symptoms to look for and when to call the dentist. 



Expect full healing to take 1-2 weeks. We'll also give you instructions for at-home care during your recovery time.
