What Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

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.

Benefits of a Wisdom Tooth Extraction

  • Prevents possible infections and teeth crowding
  • Eliminates any pain or swelling caused by a wisdom tooth
  • Restores your comfort
  • Helps maintain the appearance of your stunning smile

How Is a Wisdom Tooth Removed?

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 to keep out debris and bacteria. You will be given medication and detailed instructions to ensure a quick and comfortable recovery. You will then be able to go home and begin recovery. We'll provide you with expert recovery instructions and any necessary medication prescriptions, so you can recover quickly and comfortably.
