The most common type of Oral Surgery is a tooth extraction. There are times where a tooth is simply beyond repair. During these situations, there is no other favorable option than to extract the tooth.
While extractions are often required for badly decayed teeth, in many cases malpositioned teeth, such as wisdom teeth, require such treatment.
There are two common types of extraction: simple and surgical. The determination of extraction type will be made by the complexity of the extraction. Following extractions, we may choose to preserve the site, by adding grafting material, which sets the site up for future restorative options such as dental implants.
Besides extractions, Severn River Dental Health Center can also provide other Oral Surgery procedures such as crown lengthing, alveoplasty, and frenectomy. We also work with some of the best oral surgeons in the area, if your specific needs require such expertise.
