Andrew Katerakis DDS

Do you extract teeth?

While our goal is to preserve teeth for as long as possible, sometimes removing one is the best move for your general oral health and well-being. We offer comfortable tooth extraction at our Troy, OH, dental office when we can't save a tooth by any other means.

Why We Recommend Tooth Extraction

Some examples of when Dr. Katerakis would recommend tooth extraction are:

  • An abscessed or infected tooth that we can't save with root canal treatment
  • A tooth that's so severely decayed it's unsalvageable
  • A tooth that has become loose due to gum disease
  • A wisdom tooth that is crowding neighboring teeth
  • A tooth that's broken or cracked in a way that we can't restore it

Our dentist in Troy, OH, may also recommend removing one or more teeth to prepare for orthodontics or denture therapy.

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

Before your procedure, Dr. Katerakis numbs the tooth using very powerful local anesthetics that block sensations so that you won't feel any pain during your procedure.

We will send you home with aftercare instructions, and following them carefully will keep you comfortable and help you avoid any complications.
