Wisdom Teeth Removal & Teeth Extractions
At Pure Health Dental, we have an oral surgeon in-house to perform several procedures including bone grafting, implants, and more. The most common are teeth extractions including wisdom teeth removals with oral sedation.
The third molars, or wisdom teeth, form later in life than other adult teeth. The majority of people require the removal of their wisdom teeth during their late teens to their early twenties. Third molars often cause several problems including pain, infection, impaction, and misalignment which leads to extraction.
We can frequently prevent many of the troublesome issues caused by wisdom teeth by removing them before they interfere with the surrounding teeth or become infected.
During your regular exams, cleanings, and x-rays we will watch the growth and progression of your third molars to see if wisdom teeth removal is necessary. Sometimes they come in quickly and unexpectedly, but often we can see their change in direction or shifting and recommend their extraction before they cause any pain.
