Wisdom teeth, located at the rear ends of the mouths, are the last teeth to grow on our dentures. In many cases, they grow without much space available in the jawbone, which could be problematic to our oral health and aesthetics if left untreated.
As such, wisdom teeth extraction exists as a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth. If a wisdom tooth is producing some type of infection, discomfort, or other dental problems - then an extraction is necessary. Our team of professionals is glad to inform you about the procedure and its different implications.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the permanent teeth in the mouth that come in last. Some people never grow their wisdom teeth; and for others, wisdom teeth come in like any other teeth would, without presenting any problems. Still, there are several patients who suffer from impacted wisdom teeth, which is a consequence of them not having enough room to erupt and develop normally.
The objective of this procedure is to prevent all kinds of future dental problems. Depending on your case, it could be better to remove your wisdom teeth even if they still have not caused any inconvenience. This is why it is important that patients come get evaluated as soon as they notice their wisdom teeth erupting.
How Are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?
During the extraction of the wisdom tooth, we will make an oral incision in the gum tissue, to expose both tooth and bone. Then, we will remove the bone that prevents access to the root of the tooth and divide the tooth into parts to work more comfortably. Finally, we will extract the tooth and immediately proceed to clean and heal the wound.
We recommend removing the wisdom teeth if they do not come out completely by themselves. It is also recommended to remove them when the patient is young, before their roots and bones are fully formed, to facilitate recovery from surgery. Wisdom teeth removal works better for patients as a preventive procedure than an emergency one, so if you or someone you know are starting to grow their wisdom teeth, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
