This category includes surgical procedures such as dental extraction, surgical exposure of un-erupted teeth for orthodontics treatment, bone grafting procedure, pre-prosthetic shaping of bone known as alveoloplasty, vestibuloplasty, tooth root surgery known as apicoectomy, and many other in-office procedures inside the mouth. Most patients are recommended to have their wisdom teeth removed due to lack of space to accommodate these teeth as well as the complications of keeping these teeth long-term. There are certainly cases why one's wisdom teeth should not be removed, such as the close proximity of the inferior alveolar nerve. It is important to discuss with Dr. Huang your individual situation so that you will understand which treatment option is best for you.
