Extractions

There are many reasons why teeth need to be removed, and thanks to Dr. Oliverie’s surgical training  in the removal of unwanted teeth, she is able to make this experience as simple and painless as possible. Patient comfort is Dr. Oliverie’s number one priority, and she often uses mild sedating drugs and even a board certified anesthesiologist for more involved surgical procedures.

Some of the common reasons for extractions:

  • The tooth is simply not repairable, or may be impractical to repair under the circumstances. This includes teeth that are decayed below the gum line, or teeth that have lost too much bone due to gum disease.
  • Removal of the tooth may be a matter of health.  This is the case in the decision to remove wisdom teeth, teeth associated with cysts or infections, or teeth that would otherwise compromise the patient’s oral health if left in place
  • Teeth are frequently removed because they are crowded and their removal would create a situation which could be repaired in their absence.

If you have questions about extractions, please contact Oliverie Dental for more information.
