At Hamburg Family Dental, we know the thought of oral surgery can be scary, even for our bravest patients. We also know we wouldn’t recommend it unless it was absolutely necessary and in the best interest of your oral and overall health. If you need any type of oral surgery, you can rest assured you’re in the most skilled and caring hands with Dr. Patel and our team. We take every measure to ensure your comfort and use only the most advanced techniques and technology to provide a faster, more comfortable treatment with quicker healing and healthy results.
Nobody wants to have teeth extracted, but in many cases, it may be in your best interest. Don’t worry, extractions have come a long way in recent years with advancements in techniques and technology, and Dr. Patel performs them routinely with optimized patient comfort and quick healing.
Maybe you have an infected tooth or a failed root canal. Maybe you have a tooth that’s badly decayed and past the point of repair. Maybe you have untreated gum disease and your gums are no longer healthy enough to support the teeth. Maybe your teen has overcrowding or impacted wisdom teeth that may be problematic.
Whatever the reason, we can provide tooth extractions from the comfort of your dental home. We will use either a local or general anesthetic, depending on your case and individual preferences. Dr. Patel will give you specific post-op instructions to follow to ensure the fastest healing and best results.
We also offer a variety of other types of soft- and hard-tissue procedures to provide all your oral surgery needs from the comfort of your dental home.
At Hamburg Family Dental, we want your recovery to be as quick and painless as possible.

Dr. Patel will be sure to give you specific post-op instructions to follow, but here are some general guidelines you can anticipate following oral surgery.
If bleeding, pain, and swelling don’t subside after 24-48 hours, you should give us a call and come see us right away and we can help.
