Why Should I Get Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are the last to emerge and there may not be enough room in the mouth to accommodate them. They can become impacted, meaning they are not able to come in or move into the right position. This can result in pain, infection, and damage to the surrounding teeth. In some cases, cysts or tumors can form around the impacted wisdom teeth, leading to more serious problems. Therefore, it is often recommended to have them removed to prevent potential issues.

The Benefits Of Wisdom Tooth Removal

Pain Relief

Wisdom teeth that are impacted or growing incorrectly can cause severe pain. This discomfort can affect your ability to eat, speak, and even concentrate. By removing the problematic wisdom teeth, Dr. Wilson can provide immediate pain relief and prevent future dental issues.

Prevents Damage to Other Teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth can push against your other teeth, causing them to shift and become misaligned. This can result in bite issues and cosmetic concerns. Wisdom tooth removal prevents this damage and helps to maintain the health and appearance of your other teeth.

Reduces Risk of Oral Disease

Impacted wisdom teeth are hard to clean and can become a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to gum disease and tooth decay. In some cases, cysts or tumors can develop around impacted wisdom teeth. Removing these teeth reduces the risk of these potentially serious oral health problems.

The Wisdom Tooth Removal Treatment Process

Examination and X-Ray

The first step in the wisdom tooth removal process is a thorough examination of your mouth and an X-ray by Dr. Wilson. This allows him to assess the position of your wisdom teeth and plan the best approach for their removal.

Anesthesia

Before the procedure begins, you will be given anesthesia to numb the area and ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Depending on the complexity of the extraction, local, sedation, or general anesthesia may be used.

Extraction

Once the area is numb, Dr. Wilson will make an incision in your gum to expose the tooth and bone. He will then remove the wisdom tooth, clean the area to prevent infection, and stitch the wound to promote healing.
