Extractions & Minor Surgery
At Westmoore Family Dentistry we do extractions and minor surgeries right here in our office. Most teeth can be extracted with local anesthetic, nitrous oxide (“aka laughing gas”), or conscious sedation (sleep dentistry). Single, multiple, and full-mouth extractions are performed in our offices.
For some cases we also offer Wisdom Teeth removal. Typically a patient’s mouth doesn’t allow room for wisdom teeth to erupt properly; when this occurs we recommend extraction. The best time to have your wisdom teeth removed is determined by the growth and location of the teeth. Usually the best age to have your wisdom teeth removed is between 17-21 but can go earlier or later depending on the patient. If this is something you would like to discuss, let us know. We can help you determine the best timeline for you.
Minor surgeries, complex extractions, and bone re-contouring for dentures can all be executed here at South Pointe Family Dentistry. We also offer other small, in-office surgeries; just ask one of our team members to learn more.
There are some surgeries and complicated extractions where the patient is better served visiting one of our excellent Oral Surgeons in the area. We are always happy to help you get the best service you need, call us today, we can help.
