While nature intended for your second set of teeth to last a lifetime, most patients need to have one or more teeth removed for one reason or another. Sometimes the problem is severe decay or a bad infection, in other cases trauma damages the tooth. Overcrowding is another common dilemma. No matter why you need oral dental surgery, teeth extraction is a routine procedure that can be completed in a jiffy. Once the affected tooth has been removed, Ocean Dental offers a variety of high-quality tooth replacement options.
Issues with wisdom teeth are the main reasons why teens and young adults see an oral surgeon for teeth extraction. Because the third molars are the last set of permanent teeth to erupt, there is often an insufficient amount of room left in the oral cavity. Wisdom teeth tend to thrust into existing teeth, causing pain and mouth damage.
The oral surgeons in Lompoc, CA advanced digital imaging to assess the condition of your mouth and determine if your wisdom teeth need to be removed before any problems arise.
