Recent Tooth Extraction Reviews in Monona

    Lance Crawford DDS,MS
    The second tooth from the back, on the left side of my mouth, had been hurting for a long time. I had a root canal on the tooth behind it about four years ago, and ever since, the tooth in front of that one (I guess it's called the "first molar") has hurt - not only when I chew on it - but also just when I'm not doing anything in particular. I've seen dentists, endodontists and oral surgeons about it in the past. They thought it was the wisdom tooth behind it (two teeth back!) so they removed that tooth in June 2014 - no relief. Another dentist tried a temporary filling on the tooth - no relief.    Dr. Jon Crawford took tons of x-rays, examined my mouth, and tapped my teeth with more interest than the other dentists had done. He pointed out that the tooth that had the root canal (not the first molar in front of it) was actually exhibiting more signs of pain than the tooth I thought was the problem. There may be a part of the root that got missed in the tooth behind it. He could perform another root canal, and he explained that there's a 75% chance that will fix it. But if it doesn't fix it, then they will have to extract that tooth. He told me the pro's and con's, and basically said it was my decision.     I arrived in his office fully prepared to have a root canal on the first molar, but he explained that it's most likely the molar behind it that's causing the trouble. He said that I don't really use that molar in chewing, so it's okay to have it removed. He said that really, it's what my nature is about gambling... do I want to take the 25% chance that it won't work, or just remove the tooth?     Dr. Crawford went on to explain that the first molar - the one that I (and my dentist) thought was the one that needed the root canal - indeed had a crack in it. My dentist had put a temporary filling on it, but he said that eventually, it would need a root canal. Dr. Crawford explained that it's the tooth I mostly use when chewing on that side, so it gets a lot of stress. He pointed out that, maybe it would be best to extract the troublesome molar behind it, wait and see how much that side of my mouth still hurts after I heal up, and then decide what to do. He pointed out that I could just get a crown on the first molar, and that might last me several years, postponing the need for a root canal. Again, he pointed out that it's my decision, but he wanted me to understand what was going on, and have all the facts.    For a guy who makes his money doing root canals, I was really surprised that he basically talked me out of it. I'm going to see an oral surgeon to have the back molar extracted, wait for the area to heal, and see if that first molar still hurts. I felt like he really understood dental work, and provided me with options. I mean, what if he had just done the root canal on the first molar, I went thought all that pain and expense, and that side of my mouth STILL hurt because the back molar hadn't been addressed? Dr. Crawford saved me some time and anguish. I really trust him, and I would go out of my way to see him again, if I ever do need a root canal.

    Wheatley, Dr.Michael T.
    Dr. Wheatley X-rayed and then looked at my tooth which was covered with a crown/bridge. He was very honest with his evaluation but stated he could not tell exactly what was going on with the crown covering the tooth. He then said, "I have some time this morning if you want me to take a look at it and clean it out. We can then tell what's going on and if the tooth is worth salvaging." It took about an hour for him to work on the tooth, relieved a lot of pressure, and then gave me a very honest opinion. The staff was very nice and considerate. I would recommend Dr. Wheatley to anyone in the area needing endodontic care.

    Frank Sargent DDS,MS
    The staff was very friendly.  He got me in and out.  He was very gentile and explained everything he was going to do.  I had seen two dentists before and they could not resolve the issue, and he finally did.

    Smiles on Southern
    The work on the tooth receiving the cap was performed along with the root canal at the same visit.  That side of my mouth and jaw was very sore the next day and became really swollen.  I had been given pain pills that lasted 1½ days.  I called the office and received a prescription for additional pain pills.  When the swelling became severe i called the office and hoped to see the dentist.  The receptionist says she asked the dentist and said there was no need for me to come in.  I don't think the receptionist even talked to the dentist because on a return appointment to get the cap, I asked the dentist about it and he knew nothing about it.  It's been a month and the swelling is about gone and I can finally chew on that side of my mouth.
