Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Most of us can remember the moment when we extracted our wisdom teeth. It has become a rite of passage. Although this procedure is common among teenagers and young adults, wisdom teeth may appear at any age, and their growth must be halted.

Here at the Cosmetic and Dental Implant Center, our expert dental care staff will make your experience as painless and as pleasurable as possible.

Why Do We Have Wisdom Teeth?

Basically, our wisdom teeth are vestigial organs. They are remnants from a bygone age, structures that no longer serve any purpose. In the past, our ancestors consumed more raw food. Uncooked food items tend to be tougher and harder to chew. Humans in the past had to develop larger jaws to accommodate the extra effort. As we became civilized, our food was more tender, thanks to cooking; eliminating the need for all the extra chewing power. Our jaws shrunk, but the number of teeth remained the same. They try to grow, but these wisdom teeth simply do not have enough space in our mouths.

Why Should You Consider Wisdom Teeth Removal?

The growth of wisdom teeth can generate a lot of discomfort. Because of the lack of space, they push out against other teeth and tear up the surrounding tissue. They also emerge in strange positions and odd angles, making it difficult to close your mouth without shredding your gums.

Some of them can break, and the remnant will be covered by your gums. The section will enclose tons of bacteria under a protective layer of tissue, leading to swollen and infected gum tissue. This infection may spread to other parts of your body if it manages to contaminate the blood supply.

It is better to attempt to remove wisdom teeth as early as possible. When you are young, your jawbone is less dense, granting the procedure a higher success rate.

Why Choose the Cosmetic and Dental Implant Center?

Wisdom teeth removal can be painful. If you are selecting to remove all of your wisdom teeth at once, the risk of complications will increase greatly. During such a delicate and important procedure, the patient must choose the best oral care specialists. At the Cosmetic and Dental Implant Center, we will evaluate your condition and treat any infection before we begin the actual operation.

If multiple teeth are targeted, a general anesthesia will be administered to prevent pain. The operation will start by slicing the gums surrounding the tooth and separating the bone from the soft tissue. If the removal is difficult, the tooth will be split into several sections to facilitate the process.

After removal, the wound will be closed using stitches. Some stitches need to be removed, while other simply dissolve with time. Good dental care professionals understand that the procedure is just the beginning. We will advise the patient properly on every step of the way as he or she recovers from the operation.
