Painless, safe wisdom tooth removal to prevent future infection and decay.
Wisdom teeth get their name because they are your last set of teeth (molars) and they come in typically in your late teens. Some people get 2 wisdom teeth, most get 4 (one for each quadrant of your mouth).
Wisdom teeth are enclosed within your gums and jaw in the back of your mouth and partially break through the gum. This partial break provides a safe haven for bacteria to enter and causes infection. This can also lead to pain and swelling.
There are a number of benefits of wisdom teeth removal, they are:
Removal of wisdom teeth means less crowding, and lesser crowding reduces orthodontic problems.
By removing wisdom teeth you can prevent damage to nearby teeth.
It also helps reduce the risk of gum disease such as gingivitis or periodontitis.
Helps reduce the risk of inflammation.
Lessen orofacial pain.
Can be helpful in reducing the risk of cysts, tumors, and jaw damage.
During your visit the dentist will examine your wisdom teeth and determine if there is any way to save it. Necessary x-rays will be needed to check the positions and state of the wisdom teeth under the gum line. Before we remove your wisdom teeth, we will take your health problems into consideration and customize a suitable treatment for you.
Before removing the teeth, we will administer local anesthesia so you will feel no pain.
