Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extractions

Sometimes it is necessary to extract a tooth. This situation can arise for a variety of reasons. Extractions are commonly performed in cases where a deciduous “baby” tooth is reluctant to fall out, a severely broken down and non-restorable tooth is present, or a “wisdom tooth” is poorly positioned and unable to erupt into place. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are frequently referred patients by both general dentists and specialists for the extraction of permanent or primary (deciduous or “baby”) teeth that are erupted, unerupted, fractured, severely broken down, or ankylosed (fused to the surrounding bone). Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are also best equipped to provide care for patients who are undergoing complex medical treatment, have certain medical conditions or take specific medications that can influence dental extractions, healing and recovery.

In addition to providing skilled, knowledgeable, precise and experienced care in all situations for which dental extractions are required, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained in all methods of dental anesthesia and sedation to ensure patient comfort throughout every procedure.

Following all dental extractions, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon provides detailed instructions for post-operative care and any follow-up appointments as required.
