Oral surgery is a specialty that includes teeth extractions and dental implants. The most frequently extracted teeth are the wisdom teeth. Teeth with a poor prognosis may require dental extractions. When extractions are performed, Dr. Vitarelli will discuss with you the treatment options in replacing the missing tooth/teeth.
Reasons for a tooth extraction can be from decay or trauma, a severely infected pulp, or as a result of gum disease. The procedure can be done in one visit, depending on the severity and number of extractions needed to be done.
