What to Expect During Third Molar Surgery

The relative ease with which a third tooth may be removed depends on several conditions, including a patient’s age and physical condition, the position of the tooth and root development. The extraction of some third molar teeth may require more involved surgical procedures.  Most third molar tooth extractions can be performed in Dr. Maranon‘s office under local anesthesia, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is used even if the procedure is performed under sedation or general anesthesia.  Surgery is performed with patient comfort, safety and a successful surgical result as priorities.  Procedures are planned and performed delicately with strict attention to sterility and surgical principles.  It is because Dr. Maranon’s procedures are performed in this manner that his patients normally recover very well.
