My dentist feels she can remove residual teeth on her own. Do I need a surgeon or can she remove 10 residuals teeth w/o putting me to sleep is that normal procedure?

  • If the dentist is confident then it is ok because sometime the residual teeth are not deep into bone and due to bone resporption they are not deep and it is easy to extract then under local anesthesia without putting the patient to sleep. It is normal procedure and your dentist must have assessed it from xrays and so go ahead without worry.
