SAFE AND PAINLESS EXTRACTIONS
Although our goal is to help you keep your teeth for a lifetime, sometimes the best or only possible treatment is extraction of a tooth. In such a situation, our goal is to provide a safe and painless extraction. Often, we will recommend a treatment to help preserve the bone in the area which makes it possible to place an implant in the future.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Your last set of adult teeth to develop are the “wisdom teeth,” or third molars. Not everyone needs their 3rd molars removed. If your parents needed to have their wisdom teeth out, there’s a good chance that you might as well. The only way to know for sure is to have a dentist examine the area with the help of a full mouth diagnostic x-ray. This allows us to see exactly where the tooth is laying and if there is room for it to come in. If you’re suffering from impacted 3rd molars (wisdom teeth), our experienced dentists can remove them, preserving and improving your oral health.
Surgical procedures such as simple and complex dental extractions under the use of local anesthesia should be performed with caution. Neighboring nerve tissues, under rare circumstances, may become temporarily or permanently damaged during the process.
