Oral Surgery often refers to the removal of wisdom teeth, but can also include gum grafts, and laser treatment for the removal of soft tissue. The doctors in the office can help you if these procedures are required.

What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are third molars that try to squeeze themselves into whatever space you have in your mouth. The doctors in the office will determine if there is enough room for your wisdom teeth. If your wisdom teeth need to be extracted, we will take care of it for you. We do most of the extractions ourselves but if complications are likely, we will refer you to the Oral Surgeons office.

What is a dry socket?

A dry socket occurs when part of the blood clot either dissolves or falls out of the surgical site. This is not a serious complication, but is often a painful one. A dry socket can cause pain several days after the extraction. If this is the case, please contact our office, as some medication may need to be placed into the site to improve comfort as the healing progresses.
