What is a Dental Extraction?

Oral surgery consists of many in-office surgeries from simple extractions to third molar (wisdom teeth) extractions.  Most people realize that they need their wisdom teeth taken out when they experience pain, however, preventing pain and infection is possible when teenagers and young adults are pre-screened for third molar complications before they happen. The typical age for wisdom tooth removal is 16-22 years old depending on the size, location and position of the teeth. Many times, a blocked out third molar can damage or cause a cavity on a perfectly good second molar due to its position.  Once again, early treatment especially with IV Sleep Sedation can truly be a painless procedure.
