What Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
The final two teeth that typically erupt in the late teen years are referred to as wisdom teeth. Found in the back regions of each arch, wisdom teeth (also referred to as the third molars) usually lack the necessary space to grow in effectively and are hard to keep free of debris. These teeth may be impacted (stuck inside the gum tissues or bone), poorly aligned, or unable to emerge as they should, leading to a host of dental concerns. For this reason, oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Leonel Perez performs wisdom tooth removal for Annandale, VA patients to enhance dental wellness. If you or your teen have painful, ingrown wisdom teeth, schedule an exam at the Center for Dentofacial Aesthetics for wisdom tooth extraction.
What Is the Wisdom Tooth Removal Process?
The Center for Dentofacial Aesthetics carries out wisdom tooth extractions by putting you under mild anesthesia; however, this procedure might also be combined with IV sedation dentistry to further put you at ease. Most instances of wisdom teeth removal call for an excision method, particularly when the teeth are ingrown, have arched roots, or are firmly attached to the bone tissue. After Dr. Perez makes an incision in the gum tissues to get to the molar, he can cut it into a few pieces, providing a more efficient extraction. Depending on your individual needs, all four of the wisdom teeth might be addressed during one session. After your wisdom teeth have been extracted, sutures will be placed to close the areas so they can heal.
