The simple or complex removal of teeth are some of the more common procedures performed by Dr. Gilbert. The term “impacted” describes a tooth that is submerged or embedded partially or totally under the gum or bone tissue. Typically a surgical procedure is required to remove impacted teeth. Dental extractions may be “simple”or “surgical” depending on the condition of the tooth and the size or shape of the dental root(s). These procedures are usually performed in the office/clinic.
