Our focus at Douglas A. Callow, DDS is preserving your natural teeth. Sometimes, though, a tooth is so damaged that we need to remove it to keep your mouth healthy. If you need to get a tooth extracted, you’ll want a dentist you can trust to do it. For our patients, that’s Dr. Doug Callow, member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national dental honor society.Doctor Douglas Callow on tooth extractions Read Transcript

We Use Technology, Sedation for Pain-Free Extractions
We use dental technology like digital X-rays and an intraoral camera to precisely plan all your dental procedures, including a tooth extraction. And we thoroughly numb your mouth prior to your procedure so you won’t feel a thing. We also keep you comfortable in our chair with amenities including:
If you’re still nervous about your extractions, we can administer nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”). You’ll enjoy a mildly euphoric feeling during your extraction, and you’ll quickly feel like yourself afterward. You should even be able to drive yourself home.
See Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction
While we always try to preserve your own teeth, an extraction is the best option in certain situations. These may include:
- A severely infected or decayed tooth
- A tooth that is so damaged that it can’t be repaired
- A tooth that must be removed for dentures, orthodontics, or other dental treatments
