Why a dentist in the 95101 zip code may need to remove wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are teeth that can become extremely troublesome for many patients. These teeth are the last to erupt in the smile. They develop in the very back of the mouth and because of the lack of space, can often become impacted and unable to break through the gum line. When they do erupt, they may affect the alignment of the existing teeth or become difficult to clean. This can result in the development of periodontal disease. To avoid pain or poor oral health, many patients may request to have their dentist in the 95101 zip code extract the teeth.
Extraction of wisdom teeth is a common oral surgery. Wisdom teeth are problematic and patients can restore their health and comfort by having them removed. They are not necessary and can be extracted without negatively affecting the aesthetics, function, or health of the mouth. In fact, removing wisdom teeth can have a positive effect on all these aspects of the smile.
Wisdom teeth may be removed for one or more of the following reasons:
- Periodontal disease (infection of the soft tissue)
- Pain due to impaction
- Damage to adjacent teeth
- Tooth decay
- Lack of room for eruption
The decision to remove wisdom teeth should be made by a professional who has examined the smile, taken x-rays, and has discussed their findings with the patients. Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta of the Center for Implant Dentistry can help patients with the process from diagnosis to treatment. We offer in-house extractions with IV or oral conscious sedation to ensure patients are completely comfortable during the procedure. We also provide specific after-care instructions post-surgery to ensure proper healing and optimum comfort.
