Surgical dentistry is often recommended for complex dental conditions that cannot be effectively treated with non-surgical methods alone. This can include impacted teeth, severe dental infections, jaw abnormalities, or facial trauma. Surgical procedures can provide a more comprehensive and targeted approach to addressing these conditions.
Surgical extraction may be necessary when a tooth is impacted (partially or fully trapped beneath the gum line), severely decayed, or broken off at the gum line. Oral surgeons have the expertise to perform these more complex extractions, ensuring the tooth is safely and effectively removed.
