Surgical Removal of Teeth

Remove Problem Teeth to Improve Oral Health

If you have damaged, broken or infected teeth, you may require a tooth extraction. Surgical removal of problem teeth improves oral health by preventing the spread of infection, preserving the jaw structure and surrounding teeth, and relieving pain. Surgical removal of teeth is also an important step in your dental implant procedure.

When You May Need to Have a Tooth Surgically Removed

  • Fractured, cracked or broken teeth
  • Infected or severely decayed teeth
  • Impacted teeth (not fully erupted through the tissue)
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Retained baby teeth blocking permanent teeth
  • Replacing teeth with dentures or dental implants

 

Have Problem Teeth Removed by an Oral Surgeon

Tooth extractions are a common procedure and may be performed by a general dentist. However, most dentists refer their patients to an oral surgeon for the surgical removal of teeth. This is because oral surgeons have extensive experience in performing this procedure on a daily basis. Additionally, oral surgeons are extensively trained in administering anesthesia and sedation, which will make your procedure more comfortable.

When you visit our office, we will assess your situation and make a recommendation for treatment based on your individual case.
