Sometimes it becomes essential for a tooth to be removed because of crowding, disease or trauma. Despite the reason, we use a conservative approach with all tooth extractions. While the title of “oral surgery” sounds serious, most oral surgeries and extractions are routine procedures. Dr. Faiella will perform your procedure with expert skill to ensure the most comfortable recovery and the best possible result.
If not removed, a tooth that needs to be extracted can become problematic, resulting in pain, infection and other dental problems. But getting them removed doesn’t have to be an ordeal. The difficulty of the procedure varies depending on the case and the patient. However anesthesia is used to numb the area and prevent pain during the procedure.
