[MOBILE NAVIGATION BACKGROUND - DO NOT REMOVE]

Oral Surgery often refers to wisdom teeth removal, but can also include gum grafts, and laser treatment for the removal of soft tissue. Once examined our dentists will help you if these procedures are needed or required.

What is a wisdom tooth extraction

Wisdom teeth are third molars that try to squeeze themselves into whatever space you have in your mouth. The dentist in the office will determine if there is enough room for your wisdom teeth to grow correctly. If your they are needed to be extracted, we will take care of it for you. We do most of our tooth extractions in our clinic but if complications are likely, we will refer you to the proper Saskatoon Oral Surgeons office.

What is a dry socket?

A dry socket occurs when part of the blood clot either dissolves or falls out of the surgical site. This is not a serious complication, but is often a painful one. A dry socket can cause pain several days after the extraction. If this is the case, please contact our office, as some medication may need to be placed into the site to improve comfort as the healing progresses.
