Dr. Sansom makes every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease. When a tooth is malformed, damaged, impacted or ingrown, different procedures are used, but all extractions are considered surgery. Depending on which tooth is removed, we can offer you a replacement in the form of a dental implant or oral prosthetic.
Dr. Sansom can also remove problematic wisdom teeth. He takes a minimally invasive approach when extracting wisdom teeth. This reduces post-operative swelling and pain, while enhancing healing. If you teenager needs to have his/her wisdom teeth removed, Dr. Sansom can help.
