Brooke on Her Painless Extraction Although most of our dental treatments focus on keeping your natural teeth healthy, sometimes removing teeth is the best decision for your overall oral health. If a tooth extraction is needed, our Rochester, MN dentists can do it as quickly and painlessly as possible. We can even extract your wisdom teeth!
You can also get a bone graft, an oral surgery procedure designed to bolster bone growth prior to a dental implant, at Northwest Dental Group.

Comfort Options, Dental Sedation
We understand that getting a tooth removed is going to make you more nervous than a dental cleaning. But no matter the procedure, our compassionate team can ease your dental anxiety!
We offer several comfort options, including:
- Soft pillows
- Warm blankets
- Headphones for listening to music
- Televisions in every care room

If you are really nervous, you can choose from multiple forms of dental sedation. Whether they use inhaled sedation for a mild euphoria, a heavier oral sedative, or IV sedation, our dentists will ensure you remain calm and relaxed throughout your procedure.
When You Need a Tooth Extraction
When might you need a tooth extraction? Here are some situations in which your tooth may need to go:
- If infection begins destroying your teeth, and a root canal isn’t possible
- When wisdom teeth become impacted or cause pain
- If fixing a damaged tooth is more expensive or less reliable than extracting and replacing it
- To prepare for dentures or some orthodontics
After the Tooth Removal, Then What?
