The method for removing an impacted tooth will depend on how many roots it has and it’s location below the gums. Patient sedation is often used in addition to the application of an anesthesia to the impacted area.

A gum tissue flap is created to access bone tissue, and a small opening is made in the bone that covers the impacted tooth. The impacted tooth is then divided into small pieces (sectioned) and removed through the opening. The gum tissue flap is then repositioned and sutured in place. Most of the time, Dr. Stamas will use sutures that will resorb in 3 to 5 days after surgery.
