Impacted Teeth & Extractions
To be in need of a tooth extraction is a VERY painful way of living. Thanks to his advanced training in IV and local anesthesia, Dr. Gocke can perform tooth extractions and tooth eruption procedures completely without pain. Our methods can even locally numb the area for three days so you can recover faster and be more comfortable.
Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or may be broken beyond repair. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth, blocking your way to a beautiful smile during your orthodontic treatment.
Other teeth never came out during adolescence because they were impacted or “stuck” under the gumline. An easy surgical procedure is performed 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 an expert like Dr. Gocke who is trained to perform sensitive oral and facial surgeries.
