There are times when you may need to have a tooth removed. Sometimes it is because a tooth is damaged. Other times it is because room needs to be made for other teeth. The most common tooth removal surgery is for wisdom teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth (teeth that face towards the teeth and away from the jaw) have the potential to alter your alignment and cause pain and discomfort.
When patients need oral surgery in Salinas, they turn to Dr. Russell Cureton. Dr. Cureton is a general and cosmetic dentist that is also trained in oral surgery, providing you with a single resource to turn to for your dental care needs.

Wisdom Tooth Removal in Salinas, CA
Only a few dentists are trained in both general dentistry and oral surgery. Often patients have to be referred out to other dentists in order to have their procedures completed, especially with more complex procedures like wisdom tooth removal.
But Dr. Cureton’s experience makes it possible to perform this service in-house. We’ll only recommend wisdom tooth extractions when it is the best choice for your oral healthcare, and Dr. Cureton will make sure the process is as relaxing and comfortable as possible.
Other Oral Surgery Procedures
Dr. Cureton is also available to perform other procedures that traditionally would be referred out to a different oral surgeon. Some of these services include:
- Crown Lengthening
- Bone Grafting
- Pocket Reduction
Our office can also provide other tooth extractions as needed, making sure your smile is always in the best of hands. Because of Dr. Cureton’s training in cosmetic dentistry, we can also provide follow up treatments such as dental implants – all without requiring our patients to go to a new dentist.
