The team at Atalla Medical Group may recommend oral surgery for several reasons, including:
Patients with severe tooth decay, dental trauma, or gum disease may find a tooth extraction necessary to preserve oral health. While it’s usually preferable to save natural teeth whenever possible, sometimes decay or damage is so extensive that surgical removal is the best way to preserve long-term oral health.
Many patients require the removal of their wisdom teeth, or third molars, that come in at the very back of the mouth. They usually start to come in during the late teens or early adulthood.
Wisdom teeth sometimes come in crooked, don’t erupt from the gumline, crowd other teeth, or cause further complications.
