Impacted Wisdom Teeth

At Peak Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we realize that having a dental extraction can produce a lot of anxiety. Dr. Noori, Dr. Stearns or Dr. Hanzlik and their staff will do their utmost to make you feel comfortable from the moment you step in the office. Your actual extraction(s) can often be safely and pleasantly performed under the comforts of either conscious or intravenous sedation. Dr. Noori also utilizes the most recent advances in dentistry and medicine and state-of-the-art technology to allow patients to undergo teeth removal in a manner that promotes rapid healing and lessens post-operative discomfort.

While the most familiar type of extraction is wisdom teeth removal at our Denver office, there are a variety of reasons and conditions that may lead to a tooth needing to be extracted. Most commonly, extensive caries (decay) in a tooth may ultimately render it beyond repair, no matter how heroic the measure. Situations that may lead to the need for an extraction can include the decay extending too deep within the tooth, too much of the tooth having been eroded, the tooth being severely abscessed, or the natural need for wisdom teeth removal among our Denver patients at Peak OMS.

Other Dental Extractions

Teeth may also need to be extracted due to developing a non-reparable crack. These cracks are often not visible to the naked eye. If the crack is located deep within the tooth, it may lead to the development of an infection which, in turn, can result in bone loss around the tooth, extensive decay, or the formation of a dental abscess with associated facial swelling that in severe cases may be life-threatening.

Additionally, teeth may need to be removed because of severe periodontal disease, inadequate room in the jaw, or dental crowding (the prime motivators for wisdom teeth removal for our Denver patients). It is important to remove these teeth in a timely fashion before potentially more significant problems develop. With all of these scenarios, your referring provider will often discuss their concerns with you and why they are recommending a dental extraction at Peak OMS. Additionally, during your consultation with Drs. Noori, Stearns or Hanzlik, they will carefully evaluate your teeth and share his thoughts while discussing in detail what options would be best for you, including whether you are a candidate for sedation dentistry. Drs. Noori, Stearns or Hanzlik will work hand-in-hand with your general dentist or other referral source to ensure that your treatment is well coordinated and tailored to best suit your specific needs.

Whether looking for a dental extraction from crowded teeth, decay, or the arrival of wisdom teeth the removal by our Denver oral and maxillofacial surgery specialists is comfortable and customized to your individual needs.
