EXTRACTIONS / WISDOM TEETH
While we try to help patients preserve every tooth possible, some teeth need to come out. Dr. Gangi has a special touch when it comes to extractions. He knows that many people get a little (or a lot!) anxious when it comes to having teeth removed. That’s why she takes her time and makes sure her patients stay as comfortable as possible throughout this procedure.
If you have impacted wisdom teeth or a tooth that can’t be saved, we’ll get you through your extraction with all the support you need while keeping discomfort to an absolute minimum.

Wisdom Teeth FAQ
WHY ARE WISDOM TEETH SO PROBLEMATIC
Your third molars are more commonly called “wisdom teeth.” Usually appearing in the late teens or early twenties, third molars often lack the proper space in the jaw to erupt fully or even at all. This common condition is called impaction. When any tooth lacks the space to come through or simply develops in the wrong place of your jaw and becomes impacted, problems can arise. Primarily, damage to adjacent teeth and crowding occur.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO REMOVE WISDOM TEETH
In certain cases, the wisdom tooth that cannot come through becomes inflamed under the gums and in the jawbone, causing a sac to develop around the root of the tooth that then fills with liquid. This can cause a cyst or an abscess if it becomes infected. If either of these situations goes untreated, serious damage to the underlying bone and surrounding teeth and tissues can result.
WHEN SHOULD I REMOVE MY WISDOM TEETH
To potentially stave off this result, an extraction of one, several or all of the wisdom teeth may be advised. If that is the case, we have the equipment and training needed to perform such extractions, with an absolute minimum of discomfort. Ask our staff for more information regarding tooth extractions if you feel you may need one.
