Do you carry out extractions and wisdom tooth removal?

The simple answer is yes! Extractions are a lot less common today than they once were, as people are taking better care of their teeth and, as dentists, we can save more teeth now than we could previously. Despite these advances, however, there are still times when an extraction of a tooth is the only option. If you do need a tooth taken out, we are able to take out any tooth, including wisdom teeth, and often it will be covered by your health insurer (wisdom teeth only). This means you will not need a referral or to wait on a long waiting list to get the procedure performed. We perform most extractions with the use of a good local anesthetic. If you are particularly nervous, we can arrange oral sedation for you to make the procedure more comfortable.
