What is a Dental Extraction (Tooth Extraction)?
Tooth extraction is one of the most common procedures performed in dental surgery. Teeth may need to be removed for several reasons, the most common of which are:
- A large cavity that cannot be repaired.
- Cracked or fractured teeth.
- Extraction of root tips or teeth with curved roots.
- Baby teeth that don’t fall out naturally.
- Impacted third molars (Wisdom Teeth).
- Need to create room for other teeth (such as when you’re getting braces).
- Failed previous endodontic therapy.
- Infection associated with a tooth.
Tooth extraction is a routine procedure for our experienced surgeons. Four Corners Oral Surgery is trusted by patients and referring dentists for tooth extraction in the Greater Toronto Area.
The process of tooth extraction begins with a detailed consultation. Your surgeon will review your clinical history, any conditions that you might have, allergies, medications that you are taking, and any problems or pain that you have experienced with your teeth.
X-rays from previous treatments and examinations can be reviewed, or, you might have a new x-ray taken in some cases. Your options will be discussed in detail. While tooth extraction is routine, there are often other ways to treat problems. It is our priority to preserve natural teeth when possible.
If tooth extraction is the most viable option after the consultation and thorough examination, your surgeon will plan the treatment and review options to keep you comfortable. Anesthesia can be used for the most comfortable tooth extraction experience. Risks, benefits, and the prognosis of the treatment will be discussed in detail.

“My son had complex oral surgery and Dr. Omura’s job was outstanding, in fact my son was eating solids in 3 days.
The staff is extremely friendly, polite, caring and very helpful.
The assistant & nurse were great, compassionate and helped me get my 6’2 son into my car without hesitation.
Their Covid-19 safety protocols are impeccable. They take your temperature, questionnaire, give you a new mask. I felt so safe and at peace. Thank you for everything.”

“I came in for a consult and had my x-rays taken as part of it. I was very impressed with the technology and equipment Four Corners had. The assistant pulled up my x-rays immediately on the screen and Dr. Mascarenhas was able to walk me through my treatment plan right away. I am looking forward to my procedure next month, as the staff and surgeon were very welcoming and professional.”

“I came in to see Dr. Mascarenhas for 2 dental extractions. I was so pleased with how the procedure went and that my recovery was fast and seamless – I went back to work the next day. This was an exceptional experience for me as I had gotten another tooth extracted at a different office about 3 years ago, and it hurt me for 3-4 months after; Dr. Mascarenhas’ work was flawless! I’m very thankful for the staff’s experience and professionalism.”
