Whenever possible, we’ll do what it takes to keep healthy natural teeth in your mouth where they belong. However, when a tooth is damaged or detrimental to the health or movement of other teeth, Marina Hills Dental may recommend an extraction. Dr. Weber, Dr. Diehl and Dr. Petersen can perform both standard and surgical tooth extractions. A standard extraction is generally defined as removal of teeth that are visible in the mouth, where a surgical extraction is required when a tooth is impacted (completely or partially obscured by the gums), most commonly often seen in wisdom teeth.
*Dr. Diehl, Dr. Weber and Dr. Petersen are general dentists performing oral surgery services.
