Tooth Extraction and Wisdom
Teeth Surgery

Why do I need surgery for my teeth or wisdom teeth?

Teeth may develop cavities, gum disease, infections or other conditions that cause pain and swelling. This may require that one or more teeth be removed. Wisdom teeth may also need to be removed due to pain, swelling or because they are causing crowding of other teeth. Some teeth may also remain buried under the gum and fail to grow into the mouth. This may require removal of the tooth or creating space for the tooth to erupt into the mouth. Your doctor will examine your teeth and gums to determine which teeth need to be removed.

Tooth extraction and wisdom teeth treatments

Treatments we offer include:

  • Simple Tooth extraction
  • Surgical tooth extraction when needed
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Exposing teeth that have remained buried under the gum
  • The use of medicines to put you to sleep during your surgery (sedation)
