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 dentist...in the best possible way. I am so happy we found you and so thankful that you are following your soul's purpose, Dr. Stopka! ♡

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery most often includes procedures such as tooth extraction. There are several reasons that extraction may be recommended. Dr. Janet Stopka is a biological dentist and holds the philosophy that every tooth is important to oral function as well as to the body in general. Teeth are on what are called meridian pathways, through which energy flows to vital systems and organs. With this in mind, she advises extraction only when necessary. If a tooth has been severely damaged by trauma or disease, or would otherwise be lost to gum disease, gently removing it may be the best option for improved health.

Often, extractions involve wisdom teeth, the third molars that grow in sometime during the teen years. Wisdom teeth tend to be difficult even if they are able to make their way fully into the mouth. In many cases, however, their growth is halted by a lack of available space in the arch or simply due to lack of progression through the gums. Impacted wisdom teeth, as well as those that have partially erupted, can be very problematic, causing pain and a risk for infection. Teeth that continue their forward progress into insufficient space can cause other teeth to shift, leading to cosmetic, or bite problems.

In most cases, wisdom teeth can be extracted quite easily. Even those that are impacted may be gently removed without incident. Dr. Stopka has extensive experience in simple and surgical extractions. She also has a strong commitment to patient comfort. In addition to using local anesthetic for comfort, she offers patients nitrous oxide to keep them relaxed throughout their procedure.

If you have a problematic tooth or you are experiencing an ache or other type of pain, you need professional dental care. In our office, your needs are served by a friendly, experienced team that acts in a manner to restore comfort quickly and gently. Dr. Stopka is conservative in her approach to restorative care. Treatment for decayed and damaged teeth is conducted with the goal of preservation first. In the instance that extraction is the only option, you will be provided with the details you need to choose the most suitable form of tooth replacement.
