For some people, their third molars – or wisdom teeth – never cause them any issues. However, more often than not these teeth come in out of alignment, impacted or otherwise requiring removal. For all but the most complex cases, Seven Lakes Dental can perform the procedure from evaluation to follow-up care.
Why work with Seven Lakes Dental rather than an oral surgeon?
If your third molars are severely impacted or causing secondary problems in your mouth, the complexity of the case may require an oral surgeon. However, majority of the time, Dr. Larreau and Seven Lakes Dental can get the job done.
This allows you to keep your treatment in-house with a doctor and staff you already know and trust. It also ensures your follow-up care for healing and restoration (if necessary). Additionally, you may be able to minimize repeat exams with a specialist, controlling your overall costs.
Other than wisdom teeth, what other situations may require extractions?
In most cases, the doctors at Seven Lakes Dental do what they can to keep your teeth in your mouth. However, in some cases an extraction may be the best course. If you’re dealing with a persistent infection, an extraction gives your gum a chance to heal. If you have broken or excessively decayed teeth, extractions can keep the problem from spreading.
Seven Lakes Dental offers emergency care for urgent situations, and we can provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral sedation for anxious patients.
