Do I Need
Oral Surgery?

Sometimes, in order to remove problematic teeth, oral surgery is required. Dr. Attalla is highly trained in oral surgery. If you have a problem tooth that is in need of extraction, consider oral surgery in Chicago, Illinois. At Mamdouh Attalla, DDS, we utilize the latest oral surgery extraction techniques at our Chicago office to remove teeth as safely and comfortably as possible.

There are several reasons why a tooth may require extraction:

  • Advanced gum disease
  • If the tooth is greatly malpositioned or does not have sufficient room
  • If there is an extensive cavity
  • If a tooth is severely broken or cracked
  • In preparation for braces

The Extraction
Process

The extraction procedure at Mamdouh Attalla, DDS in Chicago, IL will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic. This will numb the area where the tooth will be removed (discuss anesthetic options with Dr. Attalla prior to treatment in order to determine which method is best for you).

Some teeth, commonly wisdom teeth, may require a surgical extraction if a simple extraction will not be enough. This is a more complex procedure. After a tooth is removed using a surgical extraction, stitches may be required.

During both types of extraction at Mamdouh Attalla, DDS in Chicago, IL, patients can expect to feel pressure but no pain. If you feel any pain during the oral surgery treatment, inform Dr. Attalla immediately. In most cases, the recovery period for oral surgery lasts only a few days.

If you live in the Chicago area and are currently suffering with a problem tooth or teeth that may not respond to traditional dental treatments, consider oral surgery at our office. This treatment, whether simple or complex, can help to alleviate problem teeth, effectively enhancing not only your smile but your general oral health as well.
