We’ve been serving the communities of San Diego and we are proud to have built lasting relationships with our community and look forward to building a great relationship with you. We focus and specialize in the following oral surgery procedures:

Tooth Extractions

It is usually preferable to save a tooth through root canal therapy if possible, but sometimes the tooth is too damaged and it is best to extract it. If the tooth is impacted in the gumline and it wouldn’t be possible to move it into place through orthodontic treatment (particularly common with wisdom teeth), if there are serious crowding issues, or if the tooth is too damaged, rotted, or loose to be saved with root canal treatment, our doctors may determine that extraction is the best option. Keep in mind that if Dr. Young has determined that a tooth needs extracting, it is because it is the only option for a tooth in its condition.

Many dentists do not offer extractions, but they can become necessary if teeth are overcrowded or misaligned. This process does not have to be extremely painful or long and drawn out. We take care of the extractions in a quick method that minimizes discomfort. After the recovery period is over, it will be time to begin taking the prosthodontic or orthodontic steps needed to fill in your smile.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Some people are lucky enough to have enough room for their wisdom teeth to grow in correctly, while others simply don’t get wisdom teeth in the first place. For those who do have some or all of their wisdom teeth but their jaws don’t have space for them, we may recommend extraction.

If your wisdom teeth have been bothering you, it may be time to take them out. Even if you haven’t felt them coming in, we’re able to spot troubled wisdom teeth in our digital X-rays. The best thing you can do is extract the teeth before they cause more damage to your mouth.

At Barbara Young DDS in San Diego, we take extra care to make sure that our adult patients are comfortable and anxiety-free. After a consultation, we will recommend that you continue with your wisdom teeth until intervention is absolutely necessary. When it is necessary to remove your wisdom teeth, The doctor will recommend simple and pain-free surgery. Your health is our highest concern.
