Oral surgery involves the removal of severely diseased or severely damaged teeth. Even number one goal is to save your teeth for many years. There are occasions that a tooth or teeth have been damaged severely and must be removed. If this is the case, Dr. Martinez strives to make this procedure as pleasant as possible.
Many times the wisdom teeth are a prime example of teeth that must be removed. They may need to removed so that they do not damage adjacent molars and cause other oral problems.
If the wisdom teeth are impacted (trapped or stuck in the jaw) Dr. Martinez may elect to refer you to a respected Oral Surgeon to assure that you receive the best treatment for your individual situation.
