Our Tooth Extraction Process

Our goal for every patient is to have them experience a comfortable tooth extraction. To determine if we can do a tooth extraction at our office, we will examine your tooth and the affected area. We will also review your medical history. Based on our findings, we can decide to remove your tooth at our office, or to refer you to an oral surgeon. At our offices, we can offer oral sedation for patients with dental anxiety.  

We’re also partners with Nebraska Oral and Facial Surgery (NOFS), located here in Lincoln, NE. If a patient wants IV sedation, or needs an oral surgeon for any reason, Dr. David Rallis at NOFS is excellent and will take great care of you.

Affordable Tooth Extraction

At Northstar Dental, we understand that removing a tooth can seem overwhelming. This is why we pride ourselves on our gentle dental care and affordable prices (one of our biggest goals). 

If you need more time to complete a payment, we are happy to set up monthly payment plans with CareCredit. For any other questions or concerns, please contact us.

Your Lincoln Dentist Answers…

In any case, a toothache usually means something serious. If it’s a dental emergency, call us immediately at 402-870-9783 and we’ll get you in as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of a toothache, it may either be a cavity, crack, or break. If we can, we’ll clean the tooth and save it by performing root canal therapy. Otherwise, we’ll need to extract the tooth. Once you meet with us, we’ll be happy to determine a course of action that is right for you!
