For teeth that are damaged at the root instead of on the crown, a tooth extraction may provide the only solution. Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth that has decayed beyond the point of repair. Because tooth extraction requires surgery, we offer the option of I.V. sedation in addition to a local anesthetic. Through sedation, a Martin & Winkler dentist can prevent any anxiety you may have about your tooth extraction procedure.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
The most commonly performed procedure by oral surgeons is wisdom teeth extraction. For many people, wisdom teeth need to be removed because they are impacted. This means that they are growing in at an angle and over time will push the other teeth together, crowding them. To find out if it’s time for your wisdom teeth to come out, contact us at Martin & Winkler today.
