Dr. McCormick is trained to remove teeth including 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) and he now can place implants at the same appointment.

Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, bone loss, or trauma. Sometimes wisdom teeth are impacted, which means that the tooth is stuck and unable to grow normally into the mouth and may cause gum infections leading to Pericoronitis.
