What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery includes a number of surgical treatments we may recommend to improve the health, function, or appearance of your smile. While our dentist strives to provide the most conservative treatment options possible, some conditions and cases may necessitate oral surgery. One of the most common forms of oral surgery we provide at Rivereast Dental Group is tooth extraction.

What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its place in your smile. Of course, severely damaged – decayed, broken, or infected – teeth may need to be completely removed. We may also recommend tooth extraction if there are too many teeth to properly fit in your mouth, resulting in overcrowding that cannot be corrected through orthodontics alone. We are ready to help any time, whether simple, surgical, or emergency extractions are needed. With very effective modern local anesthetics and a highly experienced provider, patients are typically happily surprised at how “easy” extractions can be (and often “wish they hadn’t waited so long”). Our dentist and dental team are dedicated to ensuring your dental experience is as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
