Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Third molars, otherwise known as Wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to develop. Most human jaws are not large enough to accommodate these teeth. As a consequence, wisdom teeth can cause many problems such as overcrowding among your other teeth which causes cleaning problems for your teeth. This can lead to tooth decay. Among other problems is the fact that they often cannot surface and remain wholly or partial impacted in the bone. This can lead to many problems such as cysts, tumors, periodontal disease, acute infections and loss of adjacent teeth.
Your wisdom teeth develop in teenage years and continue that development until you are in your twenties. The longer the teeth remain the jaw, the harder they become to remove and risk of complications increases. In sum, serious problems develop as you age when your wisdom teeth are not removed at an early age.
What to Expect When Having Your Teeth Pulled?
Before we proceed with your wisdom tooth removal, anesthesia is applied to numb your mouth and stabilize your nerves. Whether you are having a simple extraction or a surgical extraction, you will be relaxed either way. You may sense a little pressure, but it won't be unbearable at all. In the end, you can look forward to your original irritation being alleviated!
Not only does Dr. Pernoud have all the qualifications to handle all these situations, he also has the qualifications to provide deep sedation / general anesthesia to provide the most pain free environment for your teeth extractions.
