Union City area dentist offers removal of wisdom teeth
At the Center for Implant Dentistry, patients in and around the community of Union City are encouraged to learn about the wide range of services available. While many patients think of this practice as focusing strictly on implants, they also offer a variety of other dental treatments including general, cosmetic, and restorative options.
One service available is wisdom teeth removal. Removing the wisdom teeth, or the third molars, is common due to how troublesome they can be. These third molars break through the gum line around the late teen or early adult years. In many cases, they are unable to do so and become impacted. Impaction of wisdom teeth is incredibly painful and brings many patients into the practice to learn about removal to eliminate the discomfort.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure, whether it is done as an oral surgery or a simple extraction. Simple extraction is done when the teeth have already come through the gum line but pose a risk for periodontal disease or cavities. Extraction of impacted teeth is more invasive and requires surgery to cut through the gums and remove the teeth.
At our practice, patients can have wisdom teeth removal under sedation. We offer three sedatives and allow patients to choose the one best for their specific anxiety levels. Nitrous oxide is for mild anxiety, oral conscious sedation is for moderate anxiety, and IV sedation is most appropriate for those with severe fears and anxieties. The doctors at the Center for Implant Dentistry consult with patients before their procedure to determine which one should be used during their procedure for optimum comfort and relaxation.
Union City area patients ready to take charge of their oral health and wellness are welcome to book an appointment with the team of the Center for Implant Dentistry. Drs. Jain, Gupta, and Gupta are here to assist and discuss with patients the many ways in which they can enhance their smiles with today’s advanced dental procedures. Call (510) 574-0496 to discuss the various methods of addressing common concerns including the problems associated with the wisdom teeth.
