Oral surgery services may be needed after a dental trauma if a tooth is severely decayed, broken or cracked, or badly damaged from periodontal disease. Tooth impaction is a very common reason why patients consult with Dr. Wadley about Oral Surgery. Impacted teeth do not have sufficient space to develop or erupt properly. In this case, the affected tooth must be extracted to avoid pain, damage to surrounding teeth and bone, and infection. For oral surgery in Marietta, GA contact us today!
