Gentle Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth commonly begin to erupt within the mouth during late teenage and young adult years, between the ages of 16 and 25, for most people. For some, these grow in without a problem, but most people have problems with them, which can lead to oral complications or pain. Wisdom teeth can sometimes grow in unnoticed, unless caught early be a dentist. Advanced Dentistry offers gentle wisdom tooth extractions to remove these extra teeth and save your oral health. Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine procedure for us and we see many patients who need this service. You can count on effective and efficient extractions so you can get back to your normal routine without any further discomfort.
Reasons to Extract Wisdom Teeth
When a wisdom tooth does not fully erupt out of the jaw, it becomes impacted. This can cause pain, inflammation of the surrounding area and infection. If the tooth is pressing against other teeth, it can damage them or cause crowding. An impacted tooth is also more susceptible to infection.
If your jaw is too small to accommodate these extra teeth, they could start pressing on the surrounding molars. This causes many of the teeth to be pushed together, causing a condition known as crowding. Crowding can force your teeth to become crooked or alter your bite.
If wisdom teeth do not grow in properly, they could cause irritation to the soft tissues of the mouth. Gums, cheeks or your tongue could scrape against crooked teeth and cause irritation or swelling.
Remove Wisdom Teeth Without Worry
Many patients worry about a painful surgery or long recovery time, but at Advanced Dentistry, we aim to provide you with a minimally invasive and nearly painless wisdom tooth extraction. Dr. Varghese John has postgraduate training in oral and maxillofacial surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons in London, England. For those with dental fears or anxiety, we offer advanced sedation options. With these options, we can cause your anxiety to all but disappear and nearly block any pain associated with the surgery. Many patients even forget they had their wisdom teeth taken out at all. Your mouth and oral function should not be hindered at all by having your wisdom teeth removed, so it is important to have a dentist like Dr. John check on the condition of your wisdom teeth during routine dental visits if you have not had them extracted.
