Oral surgery encompasses dental surgery of the teeth, jaws, mouth, and even the face and neck for complex procedures. For most cases, including at Santa Rosa Dental, oral surgery focuses on extracting problematic teeth or placing dental implants. Our Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Michael Rice will determine if your oral surgery case can be addressed at our Santa Rosa dental practice (such as removing wisdom teeth), or must be treated by oral surgeons at a hospital or surgery center (such as cancerous bone removal).
Wisdom Teeth Removal Santa Rosa
Wisdom tooth oral surgery is a very routine procedure for Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Michael Rice. Most patients will have their wisdom teeth removed to prevent future impossible-to-reach infection or crowding and shifting of all teeth. Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Michael Rice and many oral surgeons nationwide recommend wisdom teeth removal in your mid- to- late- teenage years. At Santa Rosa Dental, we understand that you may have anxiety around oral surgery and wisdom teeth extraction– that’s fine, and it’s normal! Our caring staff and experienced Santa Rosa dentist will take the time to make sure you’re comfortable with the process, and once your wisdom teeth have been easily removed, you’ll realize there was nothing to fear.
