Dental Extractions

When a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay and there is too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be extracted.

When a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay and there is too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be extracted.

The first step during an extraction will be to take X-Rays, allowing Frankel Dentistry to help plan the best way to remove the tooth. There are two common types of extractions: simple and surgical. A simple extraction is a common dental procedure. During a simple extraction, Frankel Dentistry will loosen the tooth with an instrument called an elevator and then uses forceps to remove the tooth. These procedures are commonly done with a local anesthetic.

On the other hand surgical extractions are a little more complex. These occur when a tooth has broken off at the gum line or has not come into the mouth yet. During this procedure, the staff at Frankel Dentistry will make a small cut into the gums. Sometimes, it is necessary to either cut the tooth in half or remove some of the bone before extracting the tooth. Many times these procedures are completed with either a local anesthetic or through IV sedation.

After an extraction, the staff will give you detailed instructions on how to care for the area and what to expect, including any discomfort. Additionally, Dr. Frankel will give you his personal cell phone number in case you have any problems or questions.

Patient Testimonials

I'm very grateful. I came here today, I've had years of dental problems. I came in on an emergency. Just the way they were so gentle and helpful with this procedure is greatly appreciated and I thank you.


Very professional, positive experience having my teeth cleaned. From the friendly greeting by the receptionist, to the assistant who escorted me to my room, to the hygienist who cleaned my teeth--and the final check-in by Dr. Frankel, I felt well treated and in great hands.

Patrice K.

Excellent as always. My wife & I have been going to Frankel's since the late '60's, and have no plans to change.

Richard McCarthy

Thanks to the amazing staff who did an Awesome job at making my 5 yr olds first experience with a filling a positive one. The first thing she said when she was finished was "everyone is so nice."

Everyone at the office was smiling, respectful and very nice. They called you by your first name and shook your hand. I highly recommend Dr. Frankel and his staff.


There is no doubt in my mind that Frankel Dentistry sets the standard for quality and courteous dental care. I have not yet been disappointed by the care I have received in any of my visits.
