Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

If you are experiencing extreme sensitivity or are suffering from advanced periodontal disease, you may be required to have a tooth extracted. With a simple extraction, the dentist can safely remove the affected tooth without the need for major surgery.


There are numerous situations in which a simple extraction can help alleviate pain or prepare you for another cosmetic or restorative procedure.

Some common reasons for extraction include:

Advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the tooth roots
Extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth
Preparing a patient for orthodontic treatment
Removing a fractured or malformed tooth
Severe tooth decay which cannot be remedied with root canal therapy

We may work with a specialist to:

Extract impacted teeth that can no longer be restored
Replace lost teeth
Correct jaw alignment
Remove and biopsy any oral lesions or tumors
