Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth extraction is an important part of modern dentistry that can help patients enjoy a better quality of life. In most cases an oral surgeon will perform the procedure in an office or outpatient setting. The good news is that recovery is fast and the results can greatly improve overall dental health and wellness. There are number of reasons why wisdom teeth must be extracted. This includes everything from wisdom teeth becoming impacted to them coming in in the wrong way. When wisdom teeth are impacted it is usually because they are situated in the very after part of the mouth. When they do not come in normally they can become trapped within the jawbone and are very painful in nature.
That is where wisdom tooth extraction can help. In other instances, the patient's mouth may simply not be big enough to accommodate the normal growth of wisdom teeth. When there is no room within the jaw for an additional set of molars, surgery is usually the best option. Also of concern is when a wisdom tooth has cavities or some type of disease. When an individual is unable to reach their wisdom teeth for normal flossing and cleaning, the end result can be periodontal disease or cavities. This is another case where wisdom tooth extraction or removal is the best option. Talk with your Pewaukee dentist, Dr. Hamedi at Healthy Smiles Dental Care today for more information.
