While the primary goal in surgical dentistry is to preserve teeth, sometimes the process of preservation ultimately leads to surgical tooth removal. There are a number of reasons surgical tooth removal may become necessary, for instance in some cases, decayed teeth that are no longer healthy enough to function could become a danger to others teeth and a patient’s overall oral health. In other cases, an impacted tooth, gum disease, interference with jaw and bite alignment, and traumatic injury can all result in the need for surgical tooth removal for overall dental 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, misaligned teeth can be adjusted to create necessary space when positioning and preparing for braces and other orthodontic treatments, allowing for better results and the best possible smile.

Depending on the type, location, and underlying complications that accompany each tooth 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 affected tooth or teeth, noting 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.
