Wisdom Teeth Removal
Third molars, popularly called wisdom teeth, begin to develop in the late teen or early adult years. Almost everyone gets wisdom teeth, but there is a small percentage of people who never do. For those who do, wisdom teeth cause a variety of problems, such as crowding of already established teeth, bone pain and damage, infection, jaw pain, headaches, and bad breath.
At Springhurst Hills Dentistry, Dr. Lan Tran will conduct a thorough examination to evaluate how your wisdom teeth are situated in your mouth. If it is determined that they are impacted or may cause problems in the future, we will recommend having them removed. Doctors of dentistry across the world hold the belief that it is far better to address issues with wisdom teeth as they are coming in rather than waiting until later in life when the roots are more established and the risks are higher.
Even though it is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in the United States and around the world, it is perfectly normal to feel nervous about having some teeth extracted. That’s why we will discuss and determine all of the sedation options available to you before the day of your surgery. We will select a method that will keep you relaxed and comfortable while we take care of you. Our staff is experienced in all aspects of oral health care and will closely monitor and attend to your needs.
A few stitches or sutures will be used to seal the gums and stop the bleeding. Our team will go over all the after care instructions with you so that you heal quickly. In general, most people can resume their normal activities within a day or two.
Don’t wait until your wisdom teeth begin to cause problems. Call us make an appointment to discuss a custom solution to meet your needs.
