When a severely damaged tooth can no longer be saved and restored, it will require a procedure known as tooth extraction. A tooth extraction typically involves getting rid of the damaged tooth along with its root from the gum. Tooth extractions are a vital procedure for inserting restorations to replace the lost tooth.
In the case of problematic wisdom teeth, it is important to remove these teeth when there is no room for the teeth to grow. This may lead to pain, swelling, or even impacted teeth. With sedation, we can perform wisdom teeth extraction surgery to save you the pain these teeth may cause. Ask us what we can do to help alleviate your fears and concerns about this procedure.

Our staff members are happy to provide continuous care and service to our patients by ensuring the atmosphere is warm, positive and comfortable where they can relax after an extraction is done. Patients are requested to attend timely follow-ups with their dentist after an extraction. We encourage our patients to grasp and understand that the extraction, if surgical, will proceed like other surgeries. Patients will be administered with sedatives and healing drugs to soothe the after-effects of an extraction. Patients will be guided by their dentist on methods to ensure that their teeth remain clean and well after a procedure. At our practice, we are careful and diligent to ensure that your follow-ups are done regularly.
