• Tooth Extractions and Other Oral Surgeries

  • Here at Hood View Dental, we offer oral surgery options. Among these are tooth extractions like lower and upper wisdom teeth removal and gum surgery.

    Tooth Extractions

    All dentists can perform simple tooth extractions, but might not offer the service. Here at Hood View Dental Dr. Reichlein has everything she needs to perform tooth extractions. 

    There are many reasons why a tooth might need to be extracted. Sometimes a tooth cracks beneath the gum line and it is not visible to the naked eye. With our dental technology, we can determine if your teeth need to be extracted. We can also see what direction teeth are moving beneath your gums. For instance, if your wisdom teeth have not yet emerged, we can take them out before they become impacted and affect your other teeth and bite. Sometimes it’s a good idea to remove wisdom teeth before they are visible. With our high end X-ray technology we can see where your wisdom teeth are beneath the gum line. We can assess your situation to determine if taking out your wisdom teeth early is the best option. The good thing about taking them out early is that they might be smaller and leave a smaller hole, which can heal faster. 

    Gum Surgery

    Dr. Reichlein performs all sorts of gum surgeries.  Hood View Dental can administer shot-free frenectomies. This is an oral surgery procedure for people with tongue-tie or lip-tie. This is when your tongue or lips pull on your gums. The band of connective tissue – called the frenum or frenulum – is modified by being cut or altered. 

    Other gum issues can be treated, like the color. We can also change the color of your gums. With a Solea laser, we can alter the pigmentation. This new color can last for many years. 
    Here at Hood View Dental, we have all the necessary dental equipment to perform basic oral surgeries, when necessary. Give us a call at (503) 328-6388 if you have any questions about the oral surgeries we can perform.
