Extractions – Oral Surgery
Our dentists make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions become necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable, or when there is advanced periodontal disease. When a tooth is malformed, damaged, impacted or ingrown, different procedures are used, but all extractions are considered surgery. Depending on which tooth is removed, we can offer you a replacement in the form of either a dental implant or an oral prosthetic.
Wisdom teeth are often impacted and can be the cause of recurrent infections (pericoronitis); we are fully equipped and adequately trained to surgically remove complex wisdom teeth.
