Why Wisdom Teeth Removal?
For some people, wisdom teeth grow in comfortably, but for others it is a painful experience. There are many reasons for wisdom teeth removal, including:
- They cause your teeth to crowd because there is not enough space in your mouth
- The teeth are impacted or stuck in the jaw and are not erupting properly
- The teeth and periodontal tissue around the teeth may be harder to clean, increasing exposure to disease and decay
- The teeth are only partially exposed, causing pain and inflammation
What Can I Expect from Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Individual wisdom teeth are often removed surgically. Depending upon the condition of your wisdom teeth and how many will be removed, Dr. D’Orazio may recommend sedation dentistry to make sure that you rest comfortably through the procedure without any discomfort. Wisdom teeth removal can require a temporary soft diet and a bit of downtime after the procedure.
