Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction

If you have been experiencing pain due to a wisdom tooth, there is a good chance that you will need a tooth extraction to help alleviate the pain and prevent future problems. Although the idea of having a tooth extraction can be frightening, it is a normal procedure that can be performed by an affordable dentist in The Village of Cross Keys. Learning more about why a wisdom tooth extraction may be necessary can help you understand why you might need to see a dentist at Dental One Associates of Cross Keys.

What is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction? This procedure simply refers to having your wisdom tooth removed by a dentist or oral surgeon.

Why is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Necessary? There are many reasons why people have their wisdom teeth removed. One common reason is due to an impacted wisdom tooth, which means that the tooth hasn’t grown in as it should. Here are a few different ways that impacted wisdom teeth can erupt:

  • At an angle toward the tooth directly beside it
  • Angled inward, toward your throat
  • Angled in a horizontal manner
  • Trapped within the jawbone area

All of these irregular growth patterns can cause serious pain, but there are other issues that can arise as well. For instance, your teeth could be pushed out and made crooked, or you could suffer from other dental and oral issues.

Even if your wisdom tooth seems to be growing in normally, a dentist might choose to remove it anyway to help ensure that it doesn’t cause any problems in the future.

How a Wisdom Tooth Extraction is Performed. When you go in to have your wisdom tooth removed, your dentist will allow you to choose the type of anesthesia that you would prefer. Many people opt for their dentist to give them local anesthesia because it helps prevent pain but is more affordable, but you can also opt for general anesthesia or sedation.

Once the anesthesia has set in, the dentist will make an incision in your gum, break the tooth into smaller pieces so that it can be more easily removed, perform the tooth extraction, and clean the area. Then, the incision site will be carefully stitched up so it can heal.

After the procedure, you might experience some tenderness, but it should go away after a few days. Your dentist in The Village of Cross Keys can give you dental care tips and advice for healing properly after your wisdom tooth extraction.
