Oral surgery can involve procedures such removal of teeth (extractions), periodontal (gum) surgery, or biopsy of a suspicious lesion. Extractions are necessary if a tooth is diseased beyond repair. Also, teeth sometimes need to be removed after consultation with an Orthodontist due to severe crowding. Wisdom teeth may need extraction sometimes as well if they are impacted or erupted and causing infection, damage to adjacent teeth, or decayed.
At Blair Dental Centre, while we do surgical extractions and teeth removal for Orthodontics, we will evaluate your case and if needed, give an appropriate referral to an Oral Surgeon.
