Oral Surgery - Tooth Extractions
If we can help you save your natural tooth for a healthy and attractive result, we will each and every time. We practice conservative care, always with your best interests in mind. Sometimes conditions in your mouth, ranging from infection and pain to very advanced tooth decay, make tooth extraction (tooth removal) the best option. If this is the case, we are going to do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible, in addition to being effective.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, and they grow in last - usually between the ages of 15 and 25. Some people are lucky enough to have no problems with their wisdom teeth. However, when wisdom teeth don't come in properly they can cause serious problems, including gum infections, crooked teeth, cysts on the jaw bones, and even bone loss. In addition to causing issues with the surrounding gums and bone, problem wisdom teeth can also kill adjacent teeth. Perhaps worst of all, many of these issues are extremely painful for your teen or young adult, resulting in a dental emergency. Having wisdom teeth removed before they grow in is often the best and, surprisingly enough, the most conservative treatment because of the future problems it prevents. Dr. G can remove wisdom teeth when needed so you won't have to be referred to an out-of-network specialist. We can schedule appointments ahead of time around school and work schedules, and we offer calming medication when appropriate. Call today for your a Wisdom Tooth evaluation.
