Dental Extractions

Gentle and Stress-Free Dental Care

For most people, being told that they need a surgical procedure is an intimidating and terrifying ordeal, especially when it comes to dental extractions. Not only do you have to grapple with the idea of the surgery itself, but you have to deal with the emotional impact associated with losing a tooth. You then have to come to terms with the effect that a missing tooth has on your appearance and your ability to eat and speak.

At Grove Avenue Smiles, we can sympathize with your fears, doubts, and concerns. Our compassionate dental staff goes out of their way to make the process as stress-free as possible, and we do whatever we can to mitigate any negative effects or attitudes. We can relate to your apprehension and anxiety, and we want you to know we are here to provide support throughout the process with kindness and a gentle touch.

Our patients walk away from each dental procedure with confidence, knowing that Dr. Norrgard is exceptionally skilled at performing quick, reliable, and efficient dental extractions.  After the dental extraction, we can go over your smile treatment plan and your options for tooth replacement.


Naturally, we are in the business of protecting and saving teeth whenever possible! Sometimes, however, removing a tooth is essential for your oral health and overall wellness. Some common conditions requiring a dental extraction include:

  • Trauma from an accident
  • Deep decay
  • Broken tooth too damaged to be healed with a root canal
  • An oddly angled tooth that threatens the stability of surrounding teeth
  • Severe gum disease In preparation for orthodontic treatment
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Unrepairable damage
  • Overcrowding
  • Complications with wisdom teeth 

At Grove Avenue Smiles, we work hard to preserve your natural tooth for as long as we can. Dr. Norrgard takes a conservative approach to oral health and keeping your teeth intact. However, there are situations where dental extraction is the only option we have.

Fortunately, we can treat often our patients right here in our dental office, which makes the process convenient and saves patients from having to call around for another specialist.

We appreciate how overwhelming oral surgery can sound, even under the best circumstances. Our highly experienced, compassionate, and gentle dental staff will expertly guide you through the process from start to finish. All you have to do is show up and be prepared to relax.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Not all wisdom teeth cause a problem for all patients. With a comprehensive evaluation in our dental office, we can make a recommendation about whether it is best to extract your wisdom teeth or keep them. Because there is often not enough room to grow, wisdom teeth can cause pain or misalignment as they begin to erupt.

In cases where wisdom teeth cause discomfort or cannot erupt properly, we may recommend an extraction.  Dr. Norrgard will carefully evaluate your situation and determine whether it is in the best interest of the patient for him to do the extraction or to refer you to a specialist.
