As far as oral surgery and taking teeth out, it's not something we ever want to do, but there are times we need to take a tooth out. I'm very comfortable doing surgery when we need to. I do a lot of surgery. We're able to get patients very comfortable when we do it. Take the tooth out, make it as painless as possible. We're able to help contour what's remaining so that it can be restored with whatever method people decide to have us restore the tooth later. We get them comfortable, it gets them out of pain, and sometimes, it's just what we have to do even though that's not our first choice ever at all.

Wisdom Tooth Removal Prevents Long-Term Dental Problems
Not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed. After your dental exam, we can tell you what’s best for your oral health. If you do need your wisdom teeth removed, you’ll likely have it done between your late teens and early twenties.
Dr. Weddell or Dr. Harms might advise that you or your family member have your wisdom teeth removed if:
- They are coming in at an angle.
- They are going to cause overcrowding.
- They have not fully erupted, leaving you open to infection.
- They are causing you pain or discomfort.
- They are coming in underneath your other teeth.
- They will be too difficult for you to brush or floss properly.
After your wisdom tooth removal, Weddell Dental will give you thorough aftercare instructions so your sockets – the spaces left behind when you have a tooth removed – heal without complication.
Tooth Extraction Can Protect Your Other Teeth & Gums
Sometimes, if you have a damaged or diseased tooth, it can be saved by a root canal treatment. At other times, removal may be necessary to preserve your oral health. In these cases, Dr. Weddell or Dr. Harms will gently remove your tooth and recommend restoration options such as a dental implant. The sooner you seek treatment, the greater the likelihood we can save your tooth. Plus, our in-house dental savings plan can make paying for your extraction a lot easier.
