Oral Surgery

Oral surgery, more commonly known as tooth extractions, becomes necessary for many reasons, including:

  • Wisdom teeth
  • Teeth that cannot be restored
  • Orthodontics
  • Placement of partials and dentures

In most cases the Gentle Dental Care doctor can administer local anesthetic allowing comfortable removal of the tooth right in our office. If the extraction is complicated (e.g., hooked roots), a referral to the Oral Surgery specialist may be necessary.
