Effective treatment for patients with impacted teeth in the San Jose area
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta at the Center for Implant Dentistry near San Jose work with their patients to assist them with general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures that enhance the health and beauty of their smiles. Our practice also offers treatments including extractions. There are times when patients may need to have one or more teeth extracted. This may be due to impaction, in which a tooth has become stuck underneath the gum line and it cannot erupt. Patients may have teeth extracted because of a failed root canal, large cavities, or periodontal disease. Others may need to address teeth before they have restorations such as full dentures made to restore the function and beauty of their smiles. Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta are here to provide treatment for impacted or damaged teeth, as well as removal for preparation of restorations.
Treatment for impacted teeth requires oral surgery. This is typically done with general anesthetics for the best comfort during the procedure. Drs.

Impacted teeth can happen at any time, but it is seen more often specifically with wisdom teeth. These third molars are known for becoming problematic and having difficulties breaking through because of a lack of space. Even when they do come into the dental arch, they may cause misalignment, and increase the risk for periodontal disease and decay because of their location in the mouth.
