Oral surgery is a term for any number of procedures which make surgical changes to the mouth or jaw. Tooth extraction is the most common oral surgery procedure. Modern dental techniques and technology allow us to save teeth that would have been pulled in years past. Pulling a tooth is considered a last resort in dental treatment today. While pulling a tooth seems simple, our team of dental experts will focus on your comfort and make the process as pain-free as possible. Dr. Smith is highly skilled in many oral surgery procedures. Your Appleton dentist can also diagnose more substantial concerns that need to be referred to an oral surgeon in Appleton or an oral surgeon in the Fox Valley.
