Trust Southgate Dental For Your Dental Surgery

Sometimes, surgery is required to maintain dental health. While general dentists are able to provide a range of surgical procedures, the surgeries they perform most often are tooth extractions and wisdom tooth extractions.

All services are provided by a general dentist.

Tooth Extractions

A dentist will always do whatever they can to salvage your teeth. However, sometimes a tooth can become too infected or damaged, and it puts your oral health as a whole at risk. In these cases, it’s necessary for the dentist to remove the tooth to prevent further damage.

What To Expect From Your Tooth Extraction

Sometimes, your dentist can perform what’s called a simple extraction wherein they loosen the tooth with a special tool, then pull the tooth out with forceps. If, however, the tooth can’t be pulled, they must perform a surgical extraction.

Once the appropriate anesthesia has been administered, your dentist will make a small incision in your gum, granting access to the obscured part of the tooth. They may need to cut the tooth into pieces to remove it, or in some cases, cut pieces of the jaw bone to allow the tooth to come out.

Once your procedure is complete, you’ll be given detailed instructions on how to take care of yourself during recovery. If you have any questions about your recovery process, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are an extra set of teeth that humans no longer need. Typically these teeth emerge in the late teens to early twenties. While some people’s wisdom teeth come in without incident, it’s not uncommon for wisdom teeth to cause overcrowding or become impacted, stuck beneath the gum line due to a lack of room.

Impacted wisdom teeth can easily become infected, and overcrowding could cause serious bite problems. In cases like these, your dentist will most likely extract your wisdom teeth.

Here are some educational videos explaining the most common issues people run into with wisdom teeth:



Your dentist will take a close look at your X Rays, evaluating the position of your wisdom teeth and whether they need to be extracted or not. If your dentist decides your wisdom teeth should come out, they’ll schedule a time to perform the surgery. At this point, your dental office will give you all the information you need to prepare for the surgery. It’s crucial that you follow these instructions to the letter.

When the day of your appointment comes, your dental health team will help you get comfortable and administer the appropriate anesthesia. If your wisdom tooth is embedded in the bone, the dentist will make a small incision in the gum to give them access to the tooth. They may cut the tooth into smaller pieces to facilitate easier removal.

Once your procedure is complete, your dental office will give you detailed instructions on how to take care of yourself during recovery. If you have any questions about your recovery process, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
