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

Rick had an extraction and dental implant placement in Vancouver, WA
Rick Reviews His General Tooth Extractions Procedure

Watch Review

"Hi, my name is Rick, and I live in Milwaukie, Oregon. I came to Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery because I had some issues with my teeth. It kind of surprised me, but they came highly recommended. I had my first one about three years ago. Dr. Wendell, who’s now retired, and I’m in the middle of one right now. They put it in about two months ago, and I’ve got to wait another two months, and I’ll be ready to go. It was pretty much seamless. It was one of the easiest procedures I ever went through. They knocked me out, I woke up, and I went home. I didn’t even have to take pain killers. I had the procedure done at 9 o’clock in the morning, and by 4 o’clock, I had no pain. It’s just that simple. If anybody asked me, I’d highly recommend them. They have offices in Gresham and Milwaukie, and I had the procedure done, one here in Gresham and one in Milwaukie, and the whole staff is great. They treat you really good and make it as good as it can be. Dr. Lieblick was pretty much straight forward, to the point, and no messing around. He told me that this was a pretty common one. The first one I had was very difficult. In fact, I’ll even show it to you. It’s right here in front, but the other one is a molar and he said it’d be a piece of cake, and it was. I couldn’t be happier."

"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."

Maggie is from Portland, and she got dental implants

Watch Review

"Hi, my name is Maggie, and I live in West Linn, Oregon. I have had one dental implant, and I’m working on a second one with Dr. Lieblick. When I first was recommended to him by my dentist, I was a little bit nervous about the whole process – it seemed very detailed, and the thought of putting a screw in my jaw didn’t appeal to me. The whole procedure was very easy, very comfortable. I had very little pain, and hence, the second time I needed one, I went back to the same office. Dr. Lieblick and the staff were very supportive. They answered all of my questions, especially the first time around when I was fairly concerned about what was going on. I really appreciated the phone call the day of the surgery, that evening, from Dr. Lieblick, just asking how I was doing. On several occasions, even the second time around, I had to call the staff for questions, and they were always very kind and patient to answer my concerns. I would highly recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons to any of my friends. I have a couple friends both in Oregon City and West Linn that I would recommend and have recommended the office to."

"My name's Bobby; I'm from The Dalles, Oregon. I just had tooth pain. I broke my tooth in half. I was really nervous to go see Dr. Rehrer because my last tooth extraction was very painful. They were just really nice and made me comfortable. Dr. Rehrer—he was nice. He was good at what he did. The procedure was really fast; it took about five minutes. There was less pain—it didn't really hurt. It just was great. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rehrer if anybody needed their tooth extracted. If any of my friends ever needed their tooth extracted, I recommend Dr. Rehrer because he's great."
