Why Might I Need a Tooth Extraction?
There are a few reasons you may need a tooth removal service. For instance:
- Tooth decay
- Extra teeth
- Periodontal disease
- Damaged teeth
- Wisdom teeth
What are Wisdom Teeth?
Did you know that you have three sets of molars in your mouth? The wisdom teeth are the third set, and they appear in the very back of the mouth during your late teens and early twenties.
The majority of people will have two of these molars on the upper jaw and two on the lower jaw, amounting to four altogether. However, some people don’t have any at all.
These molars are extra, and can cause your jaw to become crowded and one tooth or more to become impacted.
What Can Happen if Wisdom Teeth Aren't Removed?
For some people, removal is not necessary. If none of the molars is impacted and all of them have erupted normally, there is less urgency to remove them. Removal could still help to avoid crowding.
In other people though, this extra set crowds the mouth, meaning there might not be enough room for them. This can result in an impacted tooth, not fully erupting from the surface of the gum. Impaction is not very healthy to leave alone, because it can lead to tooth decay, swollen cheeks, and even cysts.
You can find out at home if you may have impacted wisdom teeth if you experience symptoms like pain, swelling, redness, difficulty biting or chewing, and pressure. Without removing your third set of molars, these uncomfortable side effects continue.
Types of Impaction
Not all impaction is the same. There are a few different types that differ in their location and angle:
- Normal vertical or upright impactions
- Mesio-angular impactions
- Disto-angular impactions
- Horizontal impactions
What is the Extraction Procedure?
At Complete Family Dental, we use the best cutting-edge technology and innovative techniques. This is why our procedures are as comfortable and pain-free as possible for patients. There are two types of extractions that we can perform.
A simple extraction can usually only be performed on molars that are not impacted. This procedure involves using tools to remove teeth in one piece. The patient will feel no pain with the use of local anesthetic.
A surgical extraction, on the other hand, is required to remove impacted molars. It involves minor surgery on the gum to reach the full tooth. The patient experiences no pain with the use of local anesthetic. They can also opt for sedation options like oral sedation or IV sedation.
