- Wisdom teeth removal: Many people develop problems with erupting wisdom teeth (third molars) because of a lack of room. Removal reduces the risk of gum disease or pain in the area behind the second molars. Wisdom teeth can be removed with the aid of local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending upon their condition and the patient’s preference.
- Extractions of decayed or periodontally involved teeth: Teeth may need to be removed because of decay, gum disease, crowding or because a tooth is broken and can no longer be repaired. As with wisdom teeth, the removal of erupted teeth can be done with either local anesthesia or general anesthesia.
- Placement of implants: Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth instead of a bridge. Many patients choose the use of two or four implants to stabilize a denture. Improvements in the attachments available when placing implants can stabilize a lower or upper denture with great results and less cost.
