Wisdom Tooth Extractions Near You
Why is Wisdom Tooth Removal Necessary?
If your wisdom teeth arrive and your gums and surrounding teeth remain healthy, then you will not require wisdom tooth extractions near you. However, impacted wisdom teeth can cause a wide range of oral issues, such as:
- Trapping food between your teeth
- Creating space in the gums for bacteria to thrive and cause infection
- Making cleaning challenging
- Creating cysts that can damage tooth roots
When you experience these symptoms, our dentist near you will recommend that you get your wisdom teeth removed.
What is the Extraction Process Like?
Before surgery, our team will discuss the risks of anesthesia with you. We will perform the surgery in a comfortable and safe environment, where you will be monitored with the most advanced dental technology. You should have someone come with you to your appointment to drive you home after receiving anesthesia.
Our dentist will make a small incision in your gums and remove the wisdom teeth. They will then disinfect the area and suture your gums. You will wake up with a gauze pad in your mouth that you can bite down on to reduce bleeding. You will be asked to return to Gateway Dentistry Group in two weeks for a post-surgery checkup.
