General Tooth Extraction

Preserve and Improve Your Oral Health

When a tooth is broken, damaged, or decayed, it can sometimes be fixed with a crown, filling, or root canal. However, badly damaged teeth that are beyond the point of saving have only one option left: extraction. While this may sound intense, it is a safe and commonly performed procedure that protects the health of your other teeth.

Why Should a Tooth be Extracted?

Oral health issues are typically caused by improper care of teeth. Common reasons for needing a tooth extracted include:

  • When baby teeth don’t fall out in time for adult teeth to grow
  • Increased risk of infection due to a compromised immune system (e.g., organ transplants or chemotherapy)
  • Preparing the mouth for orthodontic treatments
  • Infected gum tissue, causing tooth loosening
  • Tooth decay or damage that has entered the tooth’s nerves and blood vessels

We will perform a comprehensive 3D scan of your mouth using our advanced Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanning technology, digital X-rays, or our handheld iTero® digital scanner.

Quick and Comfortable Tooth Extractions

Have you been referred by a dentist because of a troublesome tooth, or are you seeking relief from pain caused by an infected or damaged tooth? You’ve found the right place! We look forward to alleviating pain due to an infected tooth or improving your oral health by performing general extractions.

Your doctor will administer the selected form of anesthesia or sedation that was discussed during your first visit. If you are receiving a dental implant to replace the tooth, the implant post can sometimes be placed the same day as the extraction. Our office also utilizes advanced sterilization equipment for our surgical instruments, which reduces the risk of cross-contamination.

"My name is Robert, I’m from Warnerville, Illinois, and I had an extraction done by Dr. Foxson. When I first came here, the office help was very helpful, and the staff here at Dr. Foxson’s office is very friendly, and I felt extremely comfortable. It was a very warm experience. Dr. Foxson, he’s very friendly. He’s professional, but he treats you like you’re a warm friend. He called me at home in the evening, wanted to know how everything was going. It’s better than I expected. My friends in Warnerville and Plainfield, I highly recommend Naperville Oral Surgery and Dr. Foxson."

"Hi, my name is Muffin, and I’m from Aurora, Illinois, and I had an oral extraction and implant done by Dr. Foxson. The office here is very welcoming. The office staff here is very friendly and makes sure that you’re comfortable during the procedure. Dr. Foxson is very friendly, and he’s a great oral surgeon. He engages you in conversation and gets to know you a little bit before doing any kind of procedure. He does explain everything to you that he’s going to do to you, and I think that makes you calm when the procedure happens. The procedure went great, and everything is feeling normal now. For all my friends in Aurora and Naperville, I highly recommend Naperville Oral Surgery."
