Tooth Extraction In Phoenix & Gilbert, AZ

We’re here for you when you need an extraction. Wisdom teeth, molars, damaged teeth, tooth decay.

Why Tooth Extraction?

When a natural tooth can no longer be kept in place due to advanced decay, cracks or other reasons, an extraction may be indicated. During this process, the oral surgeon will use an anesthetic to make certain the patient is comfortable. After the tooth extraction site has healed, the patient may be referred to a prosthodontist at our Phoenix or Gilbert location for dental implants.

History of Extracting Teeth

Dentistry became more commonplace over time, but its professionals came from a different industry altogether. The first dentists were barbers! In Europe barbers didn’t just cut hair, they could also do a tooth extraction. Much of the knowledge and methods of these “barber-surgeons” became more widespread after 1575. This is when Ambrose Pare publishes his Complete Works. Known as the Father of Surgery, Pare’s book contains all kinds of practical information about tooth extractions, treating tooth decay and how to fix jaw fractures.
