Reasons We Perform Tooth Extractions

One of the most common reasons patients need to have a tooth extraction is due to an accident that may have severely damaged a tooth. Even teeth that are knocked out often have tooth roots or broken pieces of bone within the socket that should be removed.

Gentle Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are extra molars that begin to develop in the back of the mouth during the late teenage years. Often, the mouth does not have the space to hold these extra teeth and they do not erupt properly, becoming impacted within the back of the jaw. Impacted teeth can become easily infected and damage or cause crowding to surrounding teeth. Dr. HagShenas provides effective tooth extractions for wisdom teeth in our office in order to preserve the structure of your jaw, relieve you of tooth pain and prevent infection.

Gentle Wisdom Teeth Extractions

We offer soothing sedation options before tooth extractions to help ease your nerves and block sensations of pain. Most patients only report a slight pressure at the site of extraction with the use of sedation during treatment. After tooth extractions Dr. HagShenas may perform a socket preservation bone graft treatment to restore the area where the tooth was. Socket preservation fills in the empty area where the tooth once was with bone, restoring jaw shape, preventing surrounding teeth from shifting into the gap, and prepares the jaw for future dental implant replacement.
