Wisdom Teeth Extractions
We focus exclusively on dental care for children and teens. One of the final stages of our patients’ development is the emergence of wisdom teeth. We are pleased to offer extraction of erupted or impacted wisdom teeth as an important part of adolescent and young adult oral health. Wisdom teeth can cause crowding, pain and destruction of adjacent teeth if not properly and promptly removed. The younger a person is when this surgery is performed, the easier the recovery.
Our oral surgery department is staffed with an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and experienced dental assistants. Procedures are carried out in our office with sedation options of Nitrous Oxide or IV sedation for your comfort. Our state-of-the-art cone beam technology shows layers of tissue, bone and nerves for the utmost accuracy and expert diagnostics. We accept all private insurance as well as Medicaid for these procedures.
