Tooth Extractions in Raleigh, NC

Let’s face it – sometimes teeth have to go. Raleigh dentist Dr. Justin Russo has significant surgical experience and has extracted thousands of teeth!

A tooth extraction may be required due to extensive decay, infected root canals, trauma, or fractured teeth from clenching and grinding. Dr. Russo offers the most advanced technology available to make all tooth extractions as safe and painless as possible.

A tooth may need to be extracted due to:

  • Orthodontic purposes
  • Extensive decay making repair impossible
  • Catastrophic tooth fractures due to clenching and grinding
  • Trauma
  • Impactions
  • Patient desires
  • Severe gum disease
  • Root canals with refractory infections

It doesn’t have to be painful!

In most cases, a tooth extraction can be performed painlessly if any previous infection is first treated with an antibiotic. We also offer those anxious patients nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) to help relax, and/or relaxation therapy with anti-anxiety medicine.

Know your medications

It is important to inform Dr. Russo about all of the medications you are currently taking, including any vitamins and supplements.

If you have a medical history of heart valve problems, artificial joints or certain other medical conditions, please alert Dr. Russo and his staff at Russo Dentistry. You will need to be premedicated with an appropriate antibiotic to kill the bacteria that may enter into the bloodstream during the extraction.


Not all tooth extractions are covered by dental insurance. To help reduce the out-of-pocket expenses associated with tooth extractions, including the extraction of wisdom teeth, we offer two in-house dental membership plans and financing through Care Credit. Our friendly staff will be able to assist you in selecting the best plan for your dental needs.
