Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth can cause pain or discomfort for many reasons including infection, improper positioning, partial eruption, etc. They can also cause issues without pain. Dr. Tyran Johnson can determine if one or all of the wisdom teeth, located in the back of your mouth, may impact your smile before you can see them yourself. If our team believes it is best for your wisdom teeth to be removed we will guide you through the process. Here at Brookfield Oral Surgery, we can help with any wisdom tooth issues you face.
The Best Candidate for a Wisdom Tooth Removal
The best candidates for wisdom tooth removal are teens and young adults who may be facing different phases of life. Teenagers may need a wisdom tooth removed prior to or after braces to prevent the crowding of teeth. The same goes for people who are experiencing tooth decay and infections. Both teens and adults may have a wisdom tooth that is growing in the wrong direction and our team is ready to help all these individuals. Who should not get a wisdom tooth removed? Everyone who has not checked with our team to ensure that is the correct procedure for you should consider reaching out sooner, rather than later.
What Are the Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Removal?
There are several clear benefits that will result from wisdom tooth removal. If your wisdom tooth is growing in the wrong direction, you have what is known as an Impacted tooth. This creates a condition where it is known to be exceedingly difficult to clean, plus it may not fully emerge, leading to higher incidences of decay. This can lead to foul-smelling breath (Infection and bacteria), loss of gums, bones, and pain in the jaw. There is a small risk for cysts (liquid-filled bumps on your gums) to develop and non-cancerous tumors. There can be overcrowding in the mouth and damage to neighboring teeth. Our team values your smile as much as you do, and we are committed to your oral hygiene.
How Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Performed?
Prior to the procedure, our professionals will calmly walk you through each step. We will talk to you in a calm and assuring voice. Once you feel assured that everything is going as planned, we will offer sedation and apply numbing agents to the area. We will remove any tissue that surrounds the tooth. If there is bone in the way, we will remove it as well. We will gently loosen all connective tissue that surrounds the tooth and then remove the tooth. If our team deems it necessary, we may give you stitches. Please speak with our professionals about aftercare.
