Review by Karrie L.
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
Thank you thank you. I love this practice. I'm so thankful for Dr. Stopka and her expertise. There are not many mercury free dentists in the south suburbs. The entire staff has been great. I find Nancy to be one of the friendliest people to work a front desk in my life. Always a pleasure to call the office. And Gail was wonderful with our 6 and 4 year olds for their first appointments. She explained everything she was going to do first and the boys had a great time in the chair. Randi was also so patient as my boys picked out a toy from the Treasure Chest (decisions, decisions, you know...).

I love Dr. Stopka's passion for her clients health and wellness. She is not your run of the mill the best possible way. I am so happy we found you and so thankful that you are following your soul's purpose, Dr. Stopka! ♡

What types of extractions are available?

There are two primary methods of extraction – surgical extraction and simple extraction. A simple extraction is when a tooth has erupted through the gum line. In this type of extraction, the tooth is essentially wedged out of the bone quickly and easily with local anesthetics. Teeth that have not erupted through the gum line, such as impacted wisdom teeth, require the patient to be put under anesthetics for the dentist to cut into the gum tissue to access the tooth This is a more invasive procedure, but is often necessary when patients are experiencing pain.

How do I know if I need an extraction?
