General Tooth Extractions

Safe and Easy Tooth Removal To Protect Oral Health

Adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but injury, disease, or orthodontic reasons may require a tooth be extracted. The board-certified oral surgeons at Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons regularly perform safe and comfortable dental extractions at all of our offices located in Gresham, The Dalles, Milwaukie, OR, and Camas, WA.

Reasons for Needing a Tooth Extracted

When teeth become damaged by decay or break down due to trauma or wear, they can sometimes be restored with a filling, root canal, or crown. When the damage is too great, your dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon to have the tooth removed. Most tooth extractions can be performed in one surgical visit. Prior to your surgical appointment, you will meet with Dr. Lieblick or Dr. Rehrer, who will take 3D scans of your mouth and discuss your options for anesthesia.

Some common reasons that a tooth may need to be extracted include:

  • Infection and decay. If a tooth is decayed, it is important to have it treated in the early stages when it can be repaired with a dental filling. If left untreated, decay continues to grow and affect the integrity of your tooth, which may require root canal therapy, a crown, or extraction.
  • Loose teeth. Many patients are affected by periodontal or gum disease. When left untreated, periodontal disease may cause teeth to shift, become loose, or lead to serious infection.
  • Crowding. There are times when seemingly healthy teeth need to be removed. When a young patient retains their baby teeth for too long, the dentist may recommend they be removed to aid the eruption of permanent teeth. Occasionally we are born with too many teeth, or our mouth is too small for all the teeth we have. In these instances, your orthodontist may recommend that a tooth be removed.
  • Facial trauma. Teeth may be fractured or broken due to an accident. If there isn’t enough structure remaining for a filling or crown, your dentist may recommend that the rest of the tooth be removed.

When you visit Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons at our office in Gresham, The Dalles, Milwaukie, OR, and Camas, WA, Dr. Lieblick and Dr. Rehrer will perform an examination to assess your oral health. Our staff will take 3D scans of your mouth to get a detailed look at your teeth and bone structure. Many patients are comfortable with only local anesthesia during an extraction, but we offer many anesthesia and sedation options to choose from.

Tooth Replacement Options After Extraction

You have options for restoring your tooth after it has been extracted. We will discuss all of your tooth restoration options with you before your surgical appointment.

  • Dental Implants. A dental implant fuses to the jaw bone, replicating the appearance, function, and health benefits of a natural tooth.
  • Full-Arch Restoration. If many teeth were extracted, or you are in need of a complete new set of teeth, we can use as few as four dental implant posts to support a fixed denture.
  • No Replacement. If you do not replace a missing tooth, the jaw bone will deteriorate over time due to lack of stimulation. This can cause other teeth to shift out of position and result in sagging facial features.

Types of Anesthesia

We offer several options for anesthesia to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

Reviews From Our General Tooth Extractions Patients

Ryan's child had a tooth extraction in Camas, WA
Ryan Reviews His General Tooth Extractions Procedure

Watch Review

"My name is Ryan; I live in Camas, Washington, and my son came into Beacon Oral Surgeons for a tooth extraction. We’d had several friends of ours that referred us to Beacon Oral Surgeons. We enjoyed working with the staff, and the doctors were very professional. Dr. Rehrer at Beacon Oral Surgeons is awesome. He was very patient with us, and we enjoyed his personality. My son Ryker felt very comfortable here. He was obviously scared about going into surgery for his tooth extraction, but the doctors joked around with him, enjoyed the time with him, explained how the procedure was going to go forward. Our experience with the team at Beacon Oral Surgeons was phenomenal. My son was very comfortable here. They kept us informed during the whole procedure, so we weren’t in the dark. I wouldn’t hesitate to bring our family and refer any of our friends to Dr. Rehrer because we highly trust him."

"My name’s Mason, and I’m from Washougal in Washington. I came to Beacon to get my tooth pulled out. My mom is a(n) assistant here. The team made me feel really comfortable. I didn’t feel a thing when they pulled my tooth out. If I had a friend that needed to get their tooth pulled, I would tell them to come here. It’s a cool place, and they do a great job. I give Beacon two thumbs up."

"My name is Joan, I’m from Vancouver, and I came to Beacon Oral Surgeons for an extraction and implant. As soon as I walked in the door, the girls at the front desk knew that I was nervous, but they put me at ease right away. Dr. Rehrer is funny, so he puts you at ease also. He explains what he’s doing, and the next thing you know, he’s done. My procedure went very smoothly. No complications, everything was good. If anybody needed an extraction, implants, wisdom teeth extracted, I would most definitely recommend Beacon."

Max Reviews His General Tooth Extractions Procedure

Watch Review

"Hi, I'm Max, and I'm from The Dalles, Oregon. I needed to get some teeth extracted. There was some crowding, and it was taking a long time for me to pull them out, and I didn't want to, so we went there to get them out. When I first went in, I was really nervous, but when I got there, they were really nice, and I felt a lot more comfortable. They took out four of my teeth, and it wasn't that bad. It was actually pretty good. It was pretty quick too. It was nice actually; it didn't hurt at all. My recovery was pretty fast. I really enjoyed the staff, and I felt a lot better afterward. I could definitely go there again, and I wouldn't be as nervous."

Watch Review

"My name is Lynne, I’m from St. Helens, Oregon, and I came to Beacon Oral Surgeons for two dental implants. The team was fantastic. Everyone was very friendly and very kind and thoughtful. Dr. Lieblick was very professional. He came in, he extracted them, he put in the implants—it was magic. I absolutely could not believe how amazing the appointment was. I experienced no pain whatsoever. They are very permanent, they’re very secure, and they look great. I feel fantastic. If anyone is considering having dental implants, I would recommend Dr. Lieblick here in Vancouver. I drove all the way from St. Helens, Oregon, just so I could see him."
