At Smile Makers Dental Center, a highly skilled oral surgeon performs all tooth extractions in our offices as well as the surgical placement of dental implants. Tooth extraction includes wisdom tooth removal and the removal of any teeth that are severely decayed and cannot be saved with alternative treatment options.
Wisdom teeth removal is a procedure that should be performed by an experienced Oral Surgeon. Wisdom teeth erupt (push through your gums) during your late teens or early 20’s. While the wisdom teeth are erupting, they are trying to find space. When there isn’t space, multiple complications can including pain, fluid-filled cysts, crowding to the other teeth and damage. In these cases, extraction is necessary.
Advanced gum disease can also result in tooth loss or tooth extraction. Our periodontists will work to save your natural tooth if at all possible. Keeping natural teeth is the goal of complete dental care, but if it’s necessary to remove any of your teeth, our oral surgeons will work to make sure that your restorations are undetectable and natural looking.
