Dental extractions are necessary for a number of reasons – extensive decay or fractured teeth that do not allow for restoration, removal of teeth to prevent crowding, or removing wisdom teeth when there isn’t enough room or they are impacted and may cause damage to other teeth. For Dr. Adrian these are routine procedures. If you’re particularly anxious about the procedure we can offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or some oral sedation to help you relax.
Gum surgery is required in some instances where gum disease has become advanced, when tissue has over grown a tooth, or when you appear to have a gummy smile.
