We perform all but the most complex extractions in our office, but we do have a good relationship with two excellent oral surgeons, Dr. Denise Clarke in Port Angeles, and Dr. Alan Peet in Sequim. They can put you completely out for surgery, which is not something we can do; they are also more experienced in difficult extractions. For those desiring all four wisdom teeth out at once, we strongly recommend seeing an oral surgeon—trying to do that with local anesthetic (“Novocain”) can run into problems. In our office, we normally extract only two wisdom teeth per session.
For all extractions, you will need to read, understand, and sign the oral surgery consent form.
