An extraction is a procedure to remove an infected or non-restorable tooth due to extensive decay of the mineralized tooth structure. If you have a toothache or pain that keeps you up at night, then the tooth is likely infected and needs to be treated with either a root canal or extraction. Think retirement because your tooth has served you well for many years, and its time has come to rest. Dr. Wong invested many hours in training in the discipline of oral surgery and routinely performed simple and surgical extractions at our office.
After the procedure, Dr. Wong and the team will ensure that the discomfort is minimal by prescribing the appropriate pain relief and administering medications at the time of appointment.
Dr. Wong also provides his emergency contact number, so his patients may reach him after hours if there are any post-op questions/concerns. If you have pain, please call us at our office in Huntingdon, PA, and we will gladly take care of you and help alleviate your discomfort.
