Oral Surgery

We can deal with the most complicated cases!

Oral surgery is art as well as dentistry because every wisdom tooth is different. Surgery becomes necessary when a wisdom tooth lacks the space it needs to properly emerge. It can either become trapped or impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth are the source of uncomfortable pain, swelling of gums, bad breath, bleeding gums, infection, and even headaches. Eventually, impacted wisdom teeth can cause damage to surrounding teeth as well. Even when they are not causing discomfort because of being crowded or impacted, they are often hard to clean and very prone to tooth decay.

Dr. Paul Athanasius of Genuine Family Dentistry in Orange, CA, is highly trained in oral surgery. He is known for his expert ability to deal with the more complex situations involving impacted wisdom teeth. Many times his elder colleagues have commented on his excellent work in performing complicated wisdom teeth extractions. Dr. Athanasius has a talent to demonstrate that pulling teeth does not have to be like “pulling teeth”! Call today for a consultation regarding your wisdom teeth.
