Des Moines Iowa Tooth Extractions

Dentists perform tooth extractions when a tooth has significant damage, decay, or cannot be saved by root canal therapy. Dental extractions may also be conducted to prepare for a dental implant.

Other reasons for tooth extraction:
  • If teeth are blocking other teeth from coming in
  • If baby teeth are not falling out in time for adult teeth to come in
  • Dentists may need to create room for teeth to move if braces are being used
  • If radiation treatment is being used, teeth may need to be removed in the radiation treatment field
  • Cancer treatment patients have weakened immune systems and teeth may become infected
  • Organ transplant patients take drugs that suppress the immune system, which sometimes makes teeth subject to infection
  • Wisdom teeth extraction

Dental Extraction
Extractions

If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there's too much damage for the dentist to repair the tooth requiring an extraction. A very loose tooth also will need removal if it can't be saved, even with bone replacement surgery (bone graft).

Surgical Tooth Extraction

An impacted tooth or a tooth that is under the gum line may require surgical removal. Extraction means that your dentist will expose your tooth by making an incision along your gum line. The dentist will remove the bone that is covering the tooth, and remove the tooth.

One or multiple teeth may be extracted at a time, which will be determined by your dentist.

Before performing any procedure, the dentist will numb the area and remove the tooth, manage bleeding if needed, and possibly stitch the gums. Medication may be suggested to control pain and swelling.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

You can avoid future dental problems by electing to remove your wisdom teeth. Their movement is often slow and may not cause pain. You also risk the chance of impact complications. Talk with your dentist today to decide whether or not wisdom tooth extraction is something you need.

Pediatric Extractions for Children

In some cases baby teeth do not fall out before adult, permanent tooth coming in. The process is very similar to adult tooth extraction. The dentist may use Nitrous Oxide may be used to help patients feel more relaxed. If this is the case, we suggest the patient not eat at least two hours before the procedure.

Extractions for Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment sometimes is needed to help facilitate other cosmetic dental procedures such as dental crowns, veneers, or dental implants. Sometimes collaboration with surgeons may be required to help expose or remove impacted teeth, correct bite complications, and facial deformities. Our dentists use a team-based approach addressing these difficult problems to make sure you receive the highest quality experience and results.

I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Margeas for a small cosmetic issue with a tooth from a recommendation from my current Dentist. I have heard from many people (including my own dentist) that he was the best in cosmetic dentistry any where in the mid-west. My consultation was this morning. He was totally upfront about what he thinks the best route is for me and my teeth. I felt totally comfortable with his recommendations and confident in his abilities. I've been to an other dentist about this same issue years ago and it didn't feel right. Now that I've had the consultation with Dr. Margeas, I'm excited to finally move forward with fixing it. Every staff member was very welcoming and pleasant. It was a really nice place to be with a great energy there. If I didn't like my normal dentist so much, I'd absolutely become a regular there! Maybe I'll pop in for an extra cleaning or something. I'm happy to have found Dr. Margeas and his staff to help me correct my cosmetic issue. I highly recommend this business!read more

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt me and my teeth were in great hands. The whole team is so kind, and my dentist was fantastic. I originally went in wanting veneers, keep in mind I am overly critical of my smile and teeth, and it was all I knew. My dentist educated me that he did not think veneers were the best choice for me, and gave me a much better option which costed about 6 times less than what veneers would have. He is a great dentist because he won't just do what makes him the most money, he does what is best for the patient. I just got done with my appointment and I could not be more overjoyed with my results. Thank you Iowa Dental Group team!:)read more
