Addison Grove Dental performs tooth extractions as part of our dental services. Our team utilizes a broad range of restorative procedures to save a damaged or infected tooth. However, the safest option to preserve your oral health is sometimes a tooth extraction. We prioritize gentle and sedation dentistry to alleviate your stress and promote a smooth recovery.
We serve the Addison, Dallas, Carrolton, and Richardson areas, and our office is open Monday through Friday, from 8am to 5pm. We accept many insurance providers and offer a membership plan to make dental care more accessible.

When Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?
Many individuals need to get their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or later in life because they do not have adequate space for these teeth to safely stay in their jaws. Dentists can however recommend tooth extractions for other reasons.
Common dental concerns leading to a tooth extraction include:
- Severe tooth decay
- Tooth infection unresponsive to root canal therapy
- Teeth crowding
- Excessive damage due to trauma, fracture, or periodontitis
If we remove a tooth visible above the gum line, we consider it a simple extraction. In the case of a broken tooth or one that is stuck in the jaw or below the gum line, we perform a surgical extraction.
Post-Operative Care to Support Healing
Dr. Singh and the rest of our staff prioritize your comfort and safety, and we use sedation dentistry to make the tooth extraction as comfortable and pain-free as possible. After the surgery, we provide you with post-operative instructions to optimize your recovery.
We usually recommend that you only eat soft foods and drink plenty of fluids for the few days following the extraction. You should also avoid drinking through a straw, smoking, or vigorous mouth rinsing for at least 48 hours.
If you experience any of the following, please contact our office immediately:
- Persistent bleeding for more than 12 hours
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Swelling or redness at the surgical site
We are available to treat dental emergencies and will take care of any additional treatment you need for optimal recovery after your tooth extraction. If you experience a dry socket, where the nerves and bone inside the socket become exposed, our providers can protect the extraction site with a medicated dressing to stimulate the formation of a new blood clot and promote healing.
Once your jaw and gum have healed, we can discuss tooth replacement solutions, including dental implants, to restore your smile to its fullness.
