Tooth Extractions

You and Dr. Haynie may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr. Haynie will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.

The Tooth Extraction Process

At the time of extraction the doctor will need to numb your tooth, jaw bone and gums that surround the area with a local anesthetic.

During the extraction process you will feel a lot of pressure. This is from the process of firmly rocking the tooth in order to widen the socket for removal.

You feel the pressure without pain as the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected.

If you do feel pain at any time during the extraction please let us know right away.

Sectioning a Tooth

Some teeth require sectioning. This is a very common procedure done when a tooth is so firmly anchored in its socket or the root is curved and the socket can’t expand enough to remove it. The doctor simply cuts the tooth into sections then removes each section one at a time.

Patient Review

FAN-DAMN_TASTIC!! I was treated with the upmost respect, and courtesy. My fears were alleviated by the professional actions and knowledge of the nursing staff, and the front office personnel.. The attention to duty and knowledge of this patient, along with his fears and obvious nervousness going into the procedure were taken into account, and gently, as possible, soothed and reduced to a great extent. The last thing I remember was Dr. Haynie saying he was going to give me something to "Relax me". Then I herd one of his nurses telling me I was going to have to wake up, so they could move me to recovery. Trust me when I say this was nothing like being at the V.A. for something like this. Dr. Haynie you a Very Strong and Professional Team . Tou should be proud of the cohesive knowledgeable, and sympathetic organization that have aligned themselves with you. They ALL get a massive "ATTA-BOY" from me, along with the highest thanks and praise. Thank you for the splendid and easy to take procedure. Sincerely Jerry Birdsell

Would definitely recommend Lakeside Oral Surgery to all my friends and family. The whole staff is very warm and welcoming. They worked really hard to make my daughter comfortable and calm before her surgery. After the surgery she told me “ That wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.” Big thank you to the Lakeside Oral Surgery Staff for being GREAT!!🤗

The moment you walk through the door, your greeted by a wonderful Staff behind the front desk. Every person I met during my consultation , very open, and kind. I was impressed from the beginning, all the way to the day of my appointment. I would recommend him in a heartbeat, and I just did today. He would be my "go to". After all, no one loves going to the 'DENTIST', but Dr. Haynie made my experience a good one, Lynn

16 days ago my wife, Joyce, had her upper teeth and 2 implants removed because of infection by Dr Hainey. Her gums are healing nicely and the surgery went well/ Dr Hainey prior to surgery explained what would happen and post surgery how Joyce should proceed. If we would need dental surgery in the future we would have Dr Hainey do it.

I couldn’t have asked for better care than I received on my first visit. I felt like everyone was really interested in who I was not just a patient to treat. We soon discovered that my granddaughter had recently been there for an appointment. It really pleases a grandparent to hear nice things about her. I am really grateful that the procedure was pain free! Got to sleep through the whole thing. Many thanks to each of the staff and for the thoughtful follow up call from Dr. Haynie.

Excellent process from the initial call hrough the after care. Dr. Haynie is very professional and skilled, as is the staff. They were very kind, caring and compassionate during each visit, and made the main procedure (tooth extraction) as pleasant as possible. While I wasn't glad to need a tooth pulled, I was very happy that Dr. Haynie and his team performed the procedure. I couldn't have been in better care, and I highly recommend them to any future patients!

Dr. Haynie has created a practice around him that, from my observation, runs extremely well. The scheduling and initial consult was as timely as they can make it possible. Prior to your procedure care is taken with a pre-procedure meeting to ensure as a patient you are preparing for the procedure and that staff give input as to how the procedure will be carried out. The day of the procedure you receive a friendly greeting and quickly moved to a prep area and then moved to the room where the procedure will take place. In my case I was having a tooth extracted, which required anesthesia. Before i knew it i was under its effects and woke with the tooth extracted. After a short recovery, while still in the chair, I was transferred to a wheel chair and quickly moved to an exit area where my driver was waiting to take me home Just prior to getting in the car I was under little effects of the anesthesia. Now home some 8 hrs. later my recovery is going fine and I am utilizing the instruction sheet, medications, cold pack they provided to assist me. And, I received a phone call from Dr. Haynie following up with me and how I am feeling to see if I was experiencing any difficulties. I have a post procedure in about a week. Overall considering my situation this went off without any difficulties and i would recommend his practice to anyone needing oral surgery!

As a retired dental assistant, I can be very critical, although I am a complete baby when it comes to getting my own work done..everyone, especially Lisa, was just wonderful to me, held my hand the whole time ! Dr Haynie is very friendly , professional and COMPETANT ! I was very nervous for nothing ! I will not hesitate for a moment if I need oral surgery in the future...front office staff is great, explained everything in detail...I couldn't be happier with ALL of them !
