A lot of people require wisdom teeth removal whether it is for preventive reasons or perhaps there is pain and infection. As your wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent teeth to develop, there is a great chance that there won’t be enough room in your mouth for them to erupt correctly. The teeth may erupt partially, sideways or become impacted in the jaw which may cause pain, infection, overcrowding, and swelling. A single or every wisdom tooth of yours may need to be removed to avert issues from occurring or to take care of the dental problems which are already present.
Wisdom tooth removal, when required, performed sooner rather than later. Through X-rays and a clinical exam, a dentist can identify which wisdom teeth need to be removed. At times, a person may require all of the wisdom teeth removed. At Expressions Dental ™, wisdom teeth extractions can be done under local anesthetic, nitrous sedation or IV sedation. In certain cases, you may be referred to an oral surgeon.
