Each procedure is different, and although many oral surgery procedures are minimally invasive, and can be done on an outpatient basis, these are still serious medical procedures, and it’s important to follow your physician’s directions carefully for the best results.
While it is always preferable to save a natural tooth that has been broken, or damaged by decay, there are some cases where it is not possible. Your dentist may need to remove your tooth if it has been too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease, or an injury. Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. Our experienced and gentle dentists can provide you with safe and comfortable methods for tooth extraction.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. They are not always functional and can cause crowding and other issues. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause pain, infection and tooth damage.
If your wisdom teeth are causing pain or problems with your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend having them removed. Our experienced oral surgeons can safely and comfortably remove your wisdom teeth and prevent future dental problems.
