When Wisdom Teeth Removal Is Necessary
Your wisdom teeth, also called third molars, come in between age 17 and 25, but it’s often possible to tell long before that when extraction is likely to be necessary. Wisdom teeth removal is often needed when your wisdom teeth are:
- Enclosed in a cyst or otherwise sick
Impacted wisdom teeth are butting up against your neighboring teeth in such a way that they cannot emerge. Infected and damaged wisdom teeth often occur because you are unable to reach back in your mouth to clean your wisdom teeth properly. Crowded wisdom teeth can affect the alignment of your other teeth, resulting in crooked teeth that may need orthodontics to treat. Sometimes your wisdom teeth can have serious health problems, such as when they are encased in a cyst. The cyst damages your jawbone and can jeopardize your other teeth.
The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process
First, we will talk to you about your oral surgery in detail, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. We will also discuss your anesthetic options and help you decide which is right for you. This will allow you to experience wisdom teeth removal with little or no discomfort.
After your wisdom teeth removal, you will experience some bleeding at the site of removal. This will last for up to 24 hours. If it doesn’t stop, please contact us and we can talk to you about your recovery. Restrict your activity for at least a day after surgery to help recovery. Sleep with your head raised to aid recovery. As you experience discomfort, take the prescribed pain medication, and it will help. You can also use an ice pack to help reduce swelling and discomfort.
Other Oral Surgery
At Strober Dental, we offer other oral surgery operation, which include preparing your mouth for dental implant procedure. If you lack adequate bone material to support your dental implant, we can increase it with a bone graft, like a transplant of bone material to your jaw. This allows us to handle even complex dental implant procedures ourselves, without referring you to another dentist.
