Wisdom Tooth Extraction
At All Pro Dental, we know that extracting your wisdom teeth can be a scary thought for many of our patients. We find that the best way to prepare our patients for this procedure and minimize their nerves is to carefully explain the procedure from all angles to ensure our patients know the reason and process of extracting their wisdom teeth.
Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Come Out?
We get this question from many patients and it is an important question to ask! Your wisdom teeth, or your third molars, are the last teeth to come in and they typically do so long after the rest of your molars and teeth have come and locked their roots in your gums. Wisdom teeth often need to be extracted because there is simply not enough room for them in your mouth. If left untreated, your wisdom teeth can disrupt your smile, cause permanent damage to the rest of your teeth, and cause you pain.
What is the Process of Extracting Wisdom Teeth?
You will likely be put under anesthesia for this procedure to ensure your comfort throughout the process, therefore you will not feel anything while your dentist or oral surgeon is working on your mouth. Your dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue closest to the tooth in question, remove the bone to gain direct access to the tooth’s root, then remove the tooth from your mouth. Your dentist will then clean the wound and stitch up the area to prevent infection. Overall, the procedure is relatively quick and routine!
