Wisdom Teeth Removal and Emergency Tooth Extraction, in Broken Arrow, OK

Your third molars are usually known as your wisdom teeth and are typically the final set of teeth to erupt in your mouth. If healthy and working, your wisdom teeth can be helpful, despite, there are also reasons behind why you may want to consider extracting your wisdom teeth. In some instances, your wisdom teeth are fine. Just because of orthodontic treatment, they require to be extracted. In other cases, your wisdom teeth can grow impacted or only partially erupt within the gum in a misalignment. During impacted or partially impacted, your wisdom teeth can cause soreness, injury, and even cause damage to the nearby gum. They can also put stress on the adjacent teeth, which can lead to the creation of cysts and even tumors, which could damage a complete region of your jaw. Finally, a fully erupted wisdom tooth needs to be eliminated because our experts in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, say they are very difficult to brush and can cause severe tooth decay.

What is Tooth Extraction?

Tooth Extraction is a dental procedure where a tooth is removed by an oral surgeon using dental tools and equipment. It’s a simple technical procedure that requires local anesthesia. Patients often refer to this procedure as “Pulling a Tooth.”

Reasons for Tooth Extraction:
Here are some reasons, on why teeth extraction is necessary:

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure:

Here at BA-Dentist in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, before we begin wisdom teeth removal, we examine the patients regarding their medical history, such as whether they have any artificial joints, diabetes or a history of heart and valve diseases, they must also report the doctor of any medicines they are currently or have before taken. Whether a doctor or a specialist is doing the extraction, the method is the same. First, local anesthesia or sedation IV is given to make the treatment more convenient. Once the treatment area is numb the extraction begins, a dental tool called an elevator is utilized to wiggle the tooth in a socket after the tooth is freed, it is removed using forceps or in some more complex situations, a surgical hand-piece is also used to assist with the removal of the tooth.

When should you have your wisdom teeth removed?

There is no particular explanation for everyone, however, if your dentist has recommended that your wisdom teeth look potentially problematic it’s usually fine to extract them sooner, rather than later, this advice is based on the point that the younger you are the quicker you recover, the possibility of lingering numbness, jaw rupture or other complexities also raises with age, finally, the longer you neglect the painful wisdom tooth in your mouth, the longer it has to create further problems in the future. So, listen to your dentist and don’t delay the removing of your wisdom teeth when advised.
