Innovative, Advanced Therapy Affords Relaxed, Comfortable Extractions
Let Us Return Health and Harmony to Your Smile
For many patients, wisdom tooth removal is a rite of passage. Having one or more wisdom teeth removed is often necessary in the teen to early adult years to relieve pain, pressure and the risk of oral infection. If poorly positioned or impacted wisdom teeth are threatening your oral health, or that of a family member, let Dr. Richard Featherstone’s experience, skill and gentle touch restore health and harmony to the smile.
Risks of Avoiding Wisdom Tooth Extractions
- Tooth Decay
- Gum Disease
- Bone Infection
- Damage to Adjacent Teeth
- Loss of Neighboring Teeth
Are You Experiencing These Symptoms?
- Food Trapping
- Facial or Gum Swelling
- Bad Taste or Bad Breath
- Cheek, Gum or Tongue Irritation
*The presence of one or more of these symptoms, especially pain, may indicate the need for wisdom tooth removal. Contact our office as soon as possible to avoid further oral problems.
Wisdom Tooth Removal in Total Relaxation
Dr. Featherstone treats most wisdom tooth extraction cases right from the comfort of our office. With innovative steroid therapy and the right medications, you or your loved one can undergo wisdom tooth removal in total relaxation, with very little post-operative swelling and discomfort. Sedation options are also available if dental anxiety or fear surrounding treatment is a concern.
When Saving Teeth Is No Longer an Option
Ultimately, Dr. Featherstone’s goal is to save teeth. However, there are certain circumstances where the best course of action is extraction, which may be required for the following reasons:
- Non-Restorable Tooth Decay
- Advanced Periodontal Disease
- Tooth Broken at the Gum Line
- Preparing for Dental Implant Placement
- In Preparation for Orthodontic Treatment
