Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extractions in Lincoln, NE

Understandably, you want to keep your teeth for your entire life. But despite regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, some teeth suffer trauma or disease that's beyond repair. Illness or accident can cause teeth to decay or fracture, and in some cases removal of a tooth is the only safe and predictable solution.  Planning for a tooth replacement may be made prior to even losing a tooth in the first place.

At Calkins Family Dentistry in Lincoln, NE, our team wants to save your teeth, so we’ll do everything we can to keep your smile healthy. But if necessary, we can perform tooth extractions and remove any trace of infection to help you recover and enjoy a pain-free smile and bite.

Start the Road to Recovery

When you come to our office in Lincoln, NE, we’ll give you a thorough examination to determine the best method for treating your teeth. If we determine tooth extractions are necessary, we will give you anesthetic to minimize pain and keep you comfortable. We’ll then remove the damaged tooth or teeth and provide appropriate follow up care.

After the removal, we’ll instruct you on how to care for your healing gums and teeth. Depending on the extent and location of the extractions, we will recommend tooth replacement options, such as implants or bridges, to restore your smile to its full function and beauty.

Testimonials

“I've been using Dr. Calkins' services for about 15 years. He has a very pleasant demeanor, he does pain-free work, and his staff does a good job of squeezing me in for emergencies. Ultimately, I'd recommend his services.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for over 20 years. All of my kids have gone to him since they were toddlers. Very conservative in his approach, never tries to do an expensive treatment if it isn't necessary. Great at giving numbing shots, can't even feel the needle.”
