Wisdom Teeth Removal
Types of Impaction:
There are several types of impaction and they include:
- Soft tissue impaction – the upper portion of the tooth has penetrated
- Partial bony impaction – tooth has partially erupted
- Complete bony impaction – tooth completely encased by jawbone
Why Should You Get Your Wisdom Tooth Extracted?
Wisdom tooth extraction is performed when there is a pain, swelling, infection or decay as a preventative measure to avoid problems in the future. Whether one or more wisdom tooth is impacted, it leads to a number of harmful outcomes, including
- Damage to nearby teeth
- Tooth crowding
Wisdom Tooth Examination:
When you come to Radiant Smiles Dental Group, we will perform a thorough examination of the wisdom tooth to evaluate its position and determine the existing problem. The examination exposes additional risk factors such as decay or damage to the surrounding teeth. Our early examination helps us identifying potential problems and determining the best treatment options for the particular case.
We will give you a local anesthetic injection to numb the area and help you feel relaxed during the procedure. Your dedicated oral surgeon will rock the tooth back and forth and sometimes make a cut in the gum to extract the wisdom tooth. After completing the procedure, we will advise you on aftercare necessities that will prevent further injuries.
