Oral Surgery & Extractions


Dentist Discussing Oral Surgery with Patient

What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is a broad term used to describe certain dental procedures that require surgical intervention. The most common procedure by a dentist trained in oral surgery is an extraction, when a partial or entire tooth is removed from the jaw.

Commonly, this procedure is known as “pulling a tooth.” However, it’s much more sophisticated and delicate than that. At Clarity Dentistry, we have a gentle and caring dentist who is highly trained in this field of dentistry.

If you or your loved one finds themselves with a dental emergency, please call our compassionate dentist. We offer expedited appointments, so that your dental needs can be taken care of timely and affordably, and we can get you out of pain or discomfort.

At our dental office, our dentists strive to make every patient feel comfortable and at ease. We understand that visiting an Indianapolis dentist can be daunting for some, so we have created a welcoming and friendly dental practice for everyone. Our staff is highly trained and dedicated to providing exceptional care.

Our dentists understand that dental consultations can be expensive, and we strive to provide affordable and comprehensive dental services. We work with various insurance providers and offer flexible payment options to help make dental care and oral health practices accessible to everyone. Our commitment to affordable dental care is especially important for our pediatric patients, as we believe every child deserves access to quality dental care.

General Dentistry

General dentistry at Clarity Dentistry includes the health of your teeth and your gums! This can include your regularly scheduled x-rays, cleanings, and exams with the doctor but also services such as tooth-colored fillings, extractions, and more.

Hygiene & Preventative Dentistry

At Clarity Dentistry, we stress preventative care to prevent the need for more invasive and expensive dental services. To do so, we recommend 6-month dental cleanings, exams, and yearly x-rays. Preventative dentistry also includes getting a small filling done before it turns into a larger filling, a crown, or a root canal.

Crowns and Bridges

With dental crowns and bridges, our cosmetic dentist at Clarity Dentistry offers dental patients ways to replace broken and damaged teeth or teeth that are missing altogether through high-quality dental crowns and bridges. This would allow patients to continue to use their teeth as normal.

Extractions & Oral Surgery

Nobody wants to have a tooth removed, but sometimes it is necessary. Extraction is often the best course of action when an infected or broken tooth occurs. Those needing an extraction shouldn't worry and make an appointment with us immediately! At Clarity Dentistry, we make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Oral Surgery FAQs


What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically erupt through the gums during the teenage or young adult years. Many people don’t realize that our teeth are specially designed to perform particular chewing functions.

For example, the incisors or front teeth incise or slice the food, whereas the molars are meant for chewing and breaking food down into small, digestible pieces.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to be Extracted?

Two set of molars, first molars and second molars, are sufficient in most of us to eat properly. Therefore the third molars, or the wisdom teeth as they are popularly known, actually have little relevance with regards to normal chewing function.

In addition, wisdom teeth can be potentially harmful and cause great discomfort if not extracted. As they start erupting, they put pressure on the neighboring teeth to come into position. The process can generate a dull or sharp pain, as there is a lack of sufficient space to accommodate the wisdom teeth in most individuals.

Even if it does happen to erupt properly and inline, being that it’s the very last tooth, maintenance of cleanliness and hygiene becomes very difficult. So, wisdom teeth are more susceptible to decay and periodontal problems.

In most instances, it is recommended that wisdom teeth should be removed. The complexity of the surgery itself depends on the shape and angle of the roots and teeth. Many Clarity Dentistry patients choose to use conscious sedation during the procedure so that their experience is more relaxed.

What Are Impacted Teeth?

Impacted teeth are teeth that fail to erupt or are buried within the gums and/or jaw bone. These impacted teeth are generally found during routine dental examinations with proper panoramic or full mouth diagnostic x-rays.

Some patients may notice a hard lump at the floor of the mouth or on the soft palate which has been there for years. Radiographs will reveal the buried or impacted teeth not visible to the naked eye.

Why Do Impacted Teeth Need to be Extracted?

In some instances, these impacted teeth may never create a problem. Still, when found, an impacted tooth often should be removed so that it does not cause any potential issues such as a cyst.

What Are Full Mouth Extractions?

For patients who have severely neglected or genetically bad teeth and who can not afford the optimal restorative treatment, multiple or full mouth extractions is a last resort.
Unhealthy, decayed, or damaged teeth can cause abscesses which are dangerous if left untreated. In addition, broken down teeth can make it very difficult and painful to eat.
Once a tooth is removed, it’s important to start thinking about how to replace it. After the bad teeth are taken out, generally a partial denture or full mouth denture is delivered to restore that person’s chewing function and aesthetics.

What Are Dental Implants?

An implant is an artificial, titanium screw-like structure that is surgically inserted into the jaw. As it fuses to the bone, it mimics the tooth’s root, giving a dental crown the support it needs to be seated.

Dental implants are the optimal treatment to replicate a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants have become increasingly popular due to the advances in implant technology, as they offer superior aesthetics and function like your natural teeth. 


Patient Testimonials


Dr. Bowen was very thorough in explaining what why I was having the pain I was having in my mouth. April was also very helpful as well! I really like how professional they were. Even though I found out I need to have some work done everything they said as to why made sense. I would definitely recommend going there!

I am always very well taken care of at Clarity Dentistry. Everyone is always very friendly, listens to my concerns with empathy, and actually treats me like a human being rather than someone to get money out of. I can honestly say this is the most clean, professional, and best dental experience in my life.

My four year old has been to two pediatric dentists that have him a huge fear of the dentist. Dr. Bowen and the hygienist that worked with my son were gentle and did everything possible to make him comfortable. If you or your kiddo are anxious about the dentist you should absolutely check out Clarity.
