Oral Surgery: Tooth Removal and More
While our Jackson, MI dentists aren’t oral surgeons, they can perform several of the most common oral surgery procedures. Doing these procedures at Watterson Family Dentistry saves you the time and hassle involved in seeing an outside specialist. On top of that, Dr. Watterson took several advanced studies in respectable institutions to better serve his patients.Dr. Watterson Discusses Oral Surgery Read Transcript
I like to think that we're able to provide service to anybody that comes to our office. One of those things, you know, people have emergencies or they need a tooth taken out and so, we do our very best in our office to provide that service for people.
At the same time, we make sure that we are doing things within the scope of our comfort level, as well as our training, and so, we want to make sure that we're providing great care.
Being gentle in the process of removing teeth is paramount and very critical for me, to make sure that you're okay during the process and that afterward, you feel comfortable coming back in to see us.
It's never a great process for someone to go through, to think that they're gonna lose a tooth, but in the process of having it done, in having a tooth removed, we want to make sure that that experience is as good as possible.
Dr. Scott Watterson has performed many procedures such as tooth extractions in his nearly 20 years as a dentist. He’s received training from institutions like the Pankey Institute, the Dawson Academy, and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS). So you can be confident in his oral surgery skills!
If he’s not comfortable handling a procedure, such as removing impacted wisdom teeth, he’ll refer you to a specialist.

We Offer Common Oral Surgery Procedures In-House
Certain oral surgery procedures are best left to a specialist. That said, we can safely perform common oral surgery procedures in our Jackson, MI dentist office, such as tooth extractions.
You’ll be comfortable working with a dental team you know and trust!
The procedures we perform:
- Tooth Extractions
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- Bone grafts, to build up bone in order to prepare your jaw for dental implants
Trust Us With Your Oral Surgery
In addition to our years of experience, we use sophisticated dental technology like digital X-rays and our Galileos 3D imaging system to carefully plan tooth extractions. If the images reveal complications such as impacted wisdom teeth, we’ll refer you to an outside specialist.
Unlike many general dentists, Dr. Watterson also offer two forms of dental sedation to relax you. In addition to the common nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), you can also get oral sedation in the form of a prescription pill. We’re the only dental practice in Jackson, MI that offers it.
