Tooth Extractions in Minot
You and Minot Dental Partners may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
To avoid these complications, in most cases, we will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
For more information about tooth extractions or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Weisner in Minot, please choose an option below:
The Tooth Extraction Process
Video: Tooth Extraction Procedure
At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.
During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.
You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.
If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.
Extraction ( 3rd Molar)
Sectioning a Tooth
Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

Patient Review by Janice M
Dr. Weisner was on time and quick to assess the issue. This was my first visit and he asked if i wanted the tooth pulled now. i was expecting to have an other appointment but he did it all on the first visit. No pain and it's healing up nicely. I would recommend him and the Minot Dental Partners to anyone.

Patient Review by Steven L
I want to thank everyone at MDP. Everyone their was in a great mood and happy to help anyone that walked in the door. Thank you to the dentist for understanding that I was in immense pain needed help on the spot, and for not lecturing me about needing to take better care of my teeth (trust me, I know). Thank you to the dental assistants for how kind and nice you were to me. And special thank you to the front desk ladies and whoever else that kept my wife company while I was being seen by the dentist. She was excited to tell me that you ladies conversed with her the whole time. And because of how great the experience was, I will be coming back to MDP for the rest of my dental needs.

I have to admit going to the dentist is my greatest fear. Yesterday was the first time I felt comfortable in the chair and during the procedure. Best of all It was over with 10 minutes! I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a new dentist to call Minot Dental Partners.
