Impacted teeth can cause a variety of problems ranging from swollen gums to jaw pain; and oftentimes, tooth impaction can result in overcrowding which makes it difficult to clean teeth properly and can lead to gum disease. In order to prevent the issues caused by impacted teeth, our oral surgeons can perform tooth extractions and tooth eruption procedures. With his advanced training in IV and local anesthesia, Dr. Gocke can locally numb the area for up to three days so you can recover faster and be more comfortable.

Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed while others may have advanced periodontal disease or may be broken beyond repair. On the other hand, teeth may also need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth and are blocking your way to a beautiful smile during your orthodontic treatment.

For many teenagers and young adults, it is possible that their teeth never came out during adolescence because they were impacted or “stuck” under the gumline. At Virginia Oral, Facial, and Implant Surgery, Dr. Gocke can perform an easy surgical procedure to give that tooth the little nudge it needs to erupt and fill your smile’s potential.

Of course, many serious complications can result if these surgical procedures are not performed properly. It is advisable to seek a specialist like Dr. Gocke who is trained to perform sensitive oral and facial surgeries.
