Surgical extractions of impacted teeth like third molars, removal of small cysts and tumours, bone grafting, management of trauma to teeth and supporting bone are a few surgical procedures performed by an oral surgeon in our clinic.
Tooth extraction is performed by a dentist or oral surgeon and is a relatively quick outpatient procedure with either local, general, intravenous anesthesia, or a combination. Removing visible teeth is a simple extraction. Teeth that are broken, below the surface, or impacted require a more involved procedure.

Those who get braces may need one or two teeth removed to provide room for their other teeth as they shift into place.
