Oral Surgery

In certain cases the most viable treatment for a tooth is complete removal.  This can be the case if there is an impaction, as in the case of a wisdom tooth.  If there is extensive decay that is beyond repair, or a deep fracture, extraction is also the treatment of choice. In orthodontic cases, several teeth may be removed to correct severe crowding.

At the time of extraction bone grafting may be placed to preserve the bone for a future implant.  Depending on the symptoms and/or presence of infection, pain medication and antibiotics may be prescribed.
