Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Among the milestones you reach in life from your first steps to learning to drive, wisdom teeth extractions may be necessary. While the process may not sound appealing, it can provide immediate relief and prevent further oral health issues. We can help to ensure you don't feel any pain during the procedure.
If you experience pain in your back teeth or jaw, then it may be time to remove your wisdom teeth. Some patients may have them removed in high school, while others may wait until the teeth begin to emerge. By seeking regular checkups, we can keep an eye on the wisdom teeth and determine when it is time to remove them.
The wisdom teeth are also known as the third molars. Even though you may not think you need wisdom teeth extraction, they may require removal for any number of reasons. Since wisdom teeth are toward the back of the mouth, they can become impacted.
Along with being unable to clean them, impacted wisdom teeth will only cause further pain and issues. Wisdom teeth can also grow at odd angles or into each other, causing even more pain. During a wisdom teeth extraction, we will ensure you can't feel any pain.
After we remove the wisdom teeth, we'll go over how to relieve any remaining soreness for the next few weeks. As the soreness subsides, you will also need to restrict your diet so your mouth can heal. In the long run, you will feel immense relief from any pain the wisdom teeth were causing.
