The wisdom teeth are the most often extracted teeth by far, but why is this the case? They are usually the last to come in (around the late teens or early twenties), and more often than not, they become stuck because the majority of people simply don’t have enough room for them in their mouths. This can lead to pain towards the back of the jaw, put pressure on the nearby teeth, and even cause an infection. If you or your teen are experiencing any issues due to your wisdom teeth, instead of seeing a specialist, you can get everything you need in Spring House right here at NeoSmile Dental Care.
After giving a patient a brief exam and taking some X-rays of their mouth, we’ll let them know if they should have their wisdom teeth removed. If yes, the procedure will begin with us thoroughly numbing the area around the teeth we intend to extract.
Once a patient can’t feel anything, we’ll remove any gum or bone tissue that is still holding onto the tooth before taking out the tooth itself. We’ll then close the area with self-dissolving stitches. A patient will experience a little swelling and bleeding afterward, but they should feel normal and be able to resume their regular routine in less than a week.
