While the primary goal in surgical dentistry is to preserve teeth, sometimes preservation ultimately leads to surgical tooth removal. There are a number of reasons for surgical tooth removal, in some cases, decayed teeth that are no longer healthy enough to function could possibly be a danger to others and oral health. In other cases, an impacted tooth, gums disease, interference with jaw and bite alignment, and traumatic injury can all require surgical tooth removal for overall function, health, and appearance.
Your trusted Cleveland, TN oral surgeon may also wish to extract a healthy tooth to improve orthodontic care. With oral extraction, adjust misaligned teeth to create the necessary space when positioning and preparing for braces and other orthodontic treatments, allowing for better results and a better smile.
Depending on the type, location, and underlying complication of extraction, the method of surgical tooth removal procedures may vary. Before surgery, our knowledgeable surgeons and staff at Ocoee Oral Surgery will perform a standard assessment of the tooth or teeth, including its position and any foreseeable complications during and following the procedure. In many cases, teeth can be extracted using a minimally invasive technique, however, we do specialize in more difficult extractions, multiple roots, and impacted or brittle teeth.
