Dr. Suzanne Haeri is available to help people in Los Angeles, California, and the surrounding area, improve their oral health and prevent problems in the future. And fortunately, one of the services she provides is tooth extraction, in particular wisdom teeth removal. Let's discuss what you can expect from this procedure.
Why You Would Need Wisdom Teeth Removal
You may need tooth extraction on your wisdom teeth if you don't have enough space for your wisdom teeth to come in. In this case, they could become impacted or affect the positioning of your other teeth.
In general, even if you aren't having issues, you may still want to have them removed because they no longer serve a purpose, and they're hard to take care of. As a result, they're prone to decay, which can spread to your other teeth. Not to mention, if you have bacteria around the gumline where your wisdom teeth are, it can be hard to clean. It'll remain there, irritate the gums, and lead to gum disease.
What to Expect During Wisdom Teeth Removal
The first step of the process is to determine if you should have your wisdom teeth removed since not everybody needs to have this procedure. Then, our dentist will decide on the best way to remove them in your situation.
For some people, wisdom tooth removal may be done using an elevator. In this case, tooth extraction is performed like other tooth removals. However, if the tooth hasn't broken through the surface at all or enough, our dentist may recommend surgical removal, which is when a practitioner makes an incision in the gums to remove the tooth.
