Surgical Extractions

The need for surgical extractions occurs when a tooth bud does not develop properly or does not have room to erupt into the mouth. This most commonly happens with the third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. When these teeth try to grow and erupt into the jawbone in late adolescence, there is often not enough room in the mouth for them to come in. Surgical extraction is indicated.
