Leslie North Dental
Every day, many teens and some adults are having their wisdom teeth removed. Though this is a typical example of tooth extraction, there are many more reasons why a tooth may be extracted: trauma to the mouth, gum disease, decayed or broken teeth that cannot be restored, infected teeth that cannot be treated, overcrowded teeth, or preparation for braces are also examples of when a tooth extraction is performed.
Oral surgery can be overwhelming for patients; with modern-day technology, much of that anxious stress can quickly be resolved. Sedation methods such as Nitrous Oxide and local anesthesia allow the patient to have a painless experience.
When should I extract a tooth?
One of the most common tooth extraction procedure is for wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that erupt, and often they get stuck below the surface of the gums. If left un-extracted, these teeth lead to complications for the patient’s oral health in the future.
Other common reasons for tooth extraction include trauma to the mouth, gum disease, decayed or broken teeth that cannot be restored, infected teeth that cannot be treated or poorly positioned or crowded teeth.

So I was back at the dentist again today! It met every expectation. I was nervous, once again all the staff made me feel at ease. They make sure when your appointment is at 2pm it’s at 2pm.. unlike most make you wait an hour or more!! I could just go on and on about this pace.. just simply amazing
Best one around. Always pleased after I visit. Staff is incredibly professional and helpful. I’ve never had a bad experience and neither has the rest of my family, needless to say, these dentists really know what they are doing.
This place is wonderful!! The entire staff is friendly and makes you feel welcome. They really care for their patients comfort. Dr. Shokati did a fantastic job on a crown for me and fillings. He took great care and made sure I was comfortable the entire time
