Tooth Extraction Process

Dr. Simon has over 25 years of experience providing oral surgery and is capable of handling most extractions in our office. Dr. Simon may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed. Others may have advanced periodontal disease or are broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

Wisdom teeth
At Advanced Dental Arts, we are committed to helping you keep your teeth for a lifetime. At times, however, an extraction is deemed the best course of treatment. Whether you are facing a simple extraction or the removal of wisdom teeth, we have the skilled specialists, facilities, and technology to perform your procedure safely and comfortably.

Your comfort and safety are of paramount importance. If fear or anxiety is a concern for you, ask us about sleep dentistry (SEDATION DENTISTRY), performed under the administration and supervision of a board certified Nurse anesthetist in the comfort and safety of our office. Sleep dentistry is a very practical option for those who dread the removal of their wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are a valuable asset to the mouth when they are healthy and properly positioned. Often, however, problems develop that require their removal. When the jaw isn't large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they can become impacted (unable to come in or misaligned). Wisdom teeth may grow sideways, emerge only part way from the gum, or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Read More
