What Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction at El Segundo Modern Dentistry?

Wisdom tooth removal is a procedure in which we extract one or more wisdom teeth. This treatment is both very common and can be very important to your overall oral health. Failure to remove wisdom teeth can lead to some very serious complications including:

Sinus Complications
Emerging wisdom teeth can cause sinus pressure, pain, or congestion.

Teeth Overcrowding
When your teeth overcrowd, many problems can occur including damage to your alignment, crippling pain, and even a reversal of your teeth straightening treatment results.

Impacted Wisdom Tooth
An impacted wisdom tooth occurs when the wisdom tooth either stays underneath the surface of your gums or only partially breaks through. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause pain, swelling, and infection.

What Types of Wisdom Tooth Extractions Are There?

There are two main types of wisdom tooth extractions that may be needed, depending on the position of your tooth or teeth:

Simple Extraction
A simple extraction is typically performed when the tooth is in good condition and has completely erupted. This makes it easier to remove using forceps.

Surgical Extraction
A surgical extraction is often performed when a tooth is partially or fully impacted. We also may need to do a surgical extraction if there is an infection, dental decay, or bone disease. Surgical extractions utilize a scalpel that helps to make the tooth and roots visible. Next, the tissue that attaches the wisdom tooth to the bone is removed so that it is simpler to reach and take out the wisdom tooth.

How Is a Wisdom Tooth Removed at El Segundo Modern Dentistry?

We will first welcome you to our comfortable office for your consultation, which will include necessary x-rays and an examination. Our highly experienced Dr. Omid Barkhordar will then work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan designed to maximize comfort and minimize recovery time.

On the day of your procedure, we will first administer the desired sedation option to ensure your complete comfort. Dr. Barkhordar will then carefully and expertly make an incision in your gum. The tissue connecting the wisdom tooth to the bone will then be gently removed, followed by the wisdom tooth. We will apply self-dissolving sutures and gauze to minimize bleeding and keep out debris and bacteria. You will be given medication and detailed instructions to ensure a quick and comfortable recovery. We will provide you with expert recovery instructions and any necessary medication prescriptions, so you can recover quickly and comfortably.

Most patients fully recover from wisdom tooth extraction at around two weeks. Immediately after the extraction, it is normal for the mouth to be swollen and tender.
