Wisdom Tooth Removal in Glendale CA
Tooth extractions are most common for wisdom tooth removal, since the growth of wisdom teeth may cause overcrowding and tooth misalignment. Wisdom teeth may also become impacted, or stuck inside your gums without erupting or growing into your mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infections, and cysts that damage other teeth. For this reason, it may be advisable to extract wisdom teeth before they negatively affect your dental health. If you are located in Glendale CA or neighboring cities, contact us for a consultation.
Extractions – Site preservation
However, extractions may also be necessary for other dental conditions such as irreversible tooth damage or periodontal disease. Extractions are the least desirable procedures and are the last diagnoses we want to make, but sometimes, the tooth at hand is too damaged and the only option is to remove it.
Tooth Extraction Procedures
Tooth extraction usually involves injecting anesthetic into a patient’s mouth before removing the tooth. Simpler extraction procedures involve dentists wiggling a tooth loose while removing it with a forceps. More complex extractions will require the skills of an oral surgeon who will make an incision in your gums to remove the tooth.
