Tooth Extraction, Oral Surgery, & Wisdom Teeth Removal
Our mouths aren’t designed to accommodate wisdom teeth. These large third molars often become entrapped in gum or bone and cause pain and pressure. Other teeth may become infected, broken, or otherwise compromised, too, but Dr. Dillard can provide tooth extraction services to safely remove them. If they do erupt, wisdom teeth typically cause dental crowding that, besides being esthetically unappealing, may increase the risk of dental decay and gum disease. Carrollton dentist, Dr. Dillard, will use digital radiography to determine the location and condition of your wisdom teeth, then remove them with diligence and care to provide a happy, healthy, comfortable smile.
At Dr. Dillard’s office, we make every attempt to preserve teeth and remedy all dental maladies. Unfortunately, some teeth are damaged beyond repair by the time intervention is sought. In these cases, Dr. Dillard performs extraction and/or oral surgery to improve oral and overall health. Additional surgical procedures include:
- Removal of teeth to eliminate crowding
- Root canal therapy
- Removal of impacted or erupted wisdom teeth
- Gum recontouring
- Crown lengthening
Dr. Dillard will carefully consider your situation and investigate other options you may have before recommending extraction or oral surgery. During your procedure, we’ll monitor your vital signs and adhere to stringent safety standards. For complete relaxation during extraction or oral surgery, Dr. Dillard may administer a sedation method. We understand that the process of having a tooth removed or surgery performed can be daunting, and we’ll make every attempt to keep you comfortable throughout your procedure.
