Is a compromised tooth causing you pain and discomfort?

Have a Painful Tooth? Contact Us Now
Dental pain or swelling may be a symptom of an issue like impacted wisdom teeth or a root canal infection. These problems require prompt treatment to prevent them from impacting other areas of your dental and overall health.
When Does a Tooth Need to Be Removed?
A Severely Damaged Tooth
Our dentistry practice offers several solutions to address damage while preserving your natural tooth. However, a severely damaged tooth may need to be extracted to preserve your dental health.
A Severely Decayed Tooth
If fillings or a root canal are not able to address the severe decay of your tooth, an extraction can stop decay from spreading to surrounding healthy teeth and gums.
If a patient's jaw is too small to accommodate all of their adult teeth, our dentists may recommend an extraction to provide enough space for your smile.
Remaining Baby Teeth
While most baby teeth fall out by early adolescence, some patients have one or two baby teeth that do not fall out naturally and get in the way of their adult teeth erupting. A simple extraction can be done to remove these teeth.
Early extraction of wisdom teeth is recommended to avoid dental problems that can arise later on. Our dentists can remove impacted wisdom teeth that have or haven't erupted fully from the gums.

"Great experience here!" 5-Star Reviews From Our Tampa-Area Patients
Great experience here! I was able to call on a Tuesday and get in the same week for a consult plus 4 wisdom teeth removals all in one visit. Prices were reasonable as well. Dr. Doroshenko did my procedure and was exceptionally kind and informative, taking the time to explain/answer any questions without rushing me or pressuring me into a decision. Highly recommend going here.View on Google
Absolutely wonderful experience from the day of consultation to the day of surgery. What a wonderful team Dr. Edwards works with. Our teenage son felt he was in good and safe hands and is recovering very well. Thank you so much! Highly recommend this office especially for wisdom teeth removal!View on Google
Nervous About Your Tooth Extraction? Sedation Can Keep You Comfortable
Removing a tooth is a relatively simple dental service, especially when performed by a trained oral surgeon like Jason Edwards or Thomas Backeris. An extraction can usually be performed with only local anesthesia, but we realize this may not feel sufficient if you have dental anxiety or an especially sensitive smile.
Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa offers a number of sedation options that can relieve your fears and ensure your comfort. Under oral conscious, or IV sedation, you will enter a deep state of relaxation or near-sleep that helps treatment fly by comfortably and effectively.
Step-by-Step Process of Tooth Extraction
"Our Tampa-area dentists offer both sedation dentistry and general anesthesia, helping ensure your comfort throughout your dental procedure."

Replace the Gap With Dental Implants
Our Dental Implant Options
After tooth extraction, dental implants are an excellent restorative approach to complete your smile. We offer several implant dentistry options for every need:
Full Arch Implants are an excellent option for replacing a complete arch of teeth when you don't qualify for dental implants due to weak bone mass but want the stability that an implant affords. The method uses just four strategically-placed implants to stabilize an entire arch of teeth.
We offer same-day dental implants that allow you to leave our office with a full smile on the same day as implant placement surgery. Depending on the client and dentist's suggestion, you may be able to have an implant placed the same day as your tooth extraction.
Depending on if you have a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, the restoration you'll need will vary. We offer crowns, dental bridges, and dentures to create a uniform smile and a functional bite, whether you're missing just one tooth or an entire arch.
Learn Whether Dental Implants Are Right for You
If you need to undergo tooth extraction and want to pursue dental implant surgery to restore the form and function of your bite — in addition to revitalizing your smile – our team is here to help you fully understand all of your options. What type of dental implants are best for you after tooth extraction depends on how many teeth are extracted, your jawbone density, and oral health, among other factors.
Tooth extraction can be just the beginning of better oral health. To learn more about your treatment plan, let our skilled dentists assess what solutions make the most sense for your needs.
"I wish I could give them more stars." Real Reviews From Happy Patients
Dr. Backeris (a.k.a. “Dr. Tom”) and his staff–especially his surgical assistant–are extraordinary! From start to finish they were extremely friendly and professional. Dr. Tom explained everything that he was going to do and has a very gentle touch. I never thought I would say this about going to see an oral surgeon, but the total experience was a pleasure! I would not see anyone else. Thank you Dr. Tom and staff!View on Google

Super impressed with Advanced Oral Surgery. I shutter at any dental work and when it comes to any oral surgery that fear is amplified. I decided to use Advanced Oral Surgery by recommendation from Dentist Deliz who is also an amazing Dentist. I had to have a tooth pulled and I have had three root canals prior to this visit. This experience was by far the best I have ever had. Dr. Jason Edwards is incredible. He is who I will only see from now on for any oral surgery.View on Google
Frequently Asked Questions About Tooth Extraction
Will Tooth Extraction Eliminate Gum Disease?
If you suffer from gum disease, your dentist or periodontist may recommend having a tooth or multiple teeth extracted. However, since this condition is not an infection of the teeth, tooth extraction will not be a cure-all for gum disease. That said, tooth extraction may be an integral part of your treatment plan to improve the overall health of your gums and teeth.
What Is “Dry Socket”?
If you suspect you need your tooth extracted, you may have come across a condition known as dry socket, a rare but serious complication often related to tooth extraction. This occurs when a blood clot doesn’t form — or is dislodged — after a doctor removes a tooth. Fortunately, our skilled surgeons take every measure to ensure your comfort both during and after the tooth extraction. We will provide you with complete post-operative instructions to minimize your risk.
If you do have any complications after tooth extraction surgery, know that our team is just a call away.
Is Bone Grafting Necessary After Tooth Extraction?
For individuals who have insufficient bone in the jaw, grafting is often recommended after an extraction. Dental bone grafts increase your eligibility for dental implants and other restorative solutions. Although grafts are more commonly needed after teeth have been missing for some time, our surgeons will work closely with you to determine whether you could benefit from this preliminary treatment.
