Are you dealing with issues with your wisdom teeth such as impaction, partial eruption, or misalignment? Wisdom tooth removal is sometimes necessary when wisdom teeth don’t come in correctly or become damaged later as they can threaten surrounding teeth and cause significant discomfort. Sol Dental offers affordable and painless wisdom tooth removal in El Paso, Texas.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom tooth removal is a simple and completely painless procedure. Under local anesthesia or sedation, a special instrument is used to loosen and then disconnect the tissue that holds the tooth in place which allows the wisdom tooth to pop out. It’s a common misconception that wisdom teeth are pulled, but they are simply finessed and manipulated out of the jaw without much force. After your wisdom teeth are extracted, you may need stitches or simply gauze to promote clotting and healing.
At Sol Dental, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal for many reasons:
- Your wisdom teeth are impacted. This happens when the tooth can’t fully erupt and tries to fit into a space that’s simply too small. In many cases, impacted wisdom teeth happen when the teeth grow at an angle or even on their sides. Part of the wisdom tooth becomes stuck in the jaw and surrounding teeth can be crowded.
- It’s difficult to properly brush your teeth. Wisdom teeth are already difficult to clean because they’re hard to reach and often do not have enough room for even flossing. They can also irritate the gums when they become impacted with creates pockets around the teeth that promotes bacterial growth and cavities.
- Your teeth are overcrowded. When your wisdom teeth erupt in your 20s, your mouth is already full of teeth. Because there is little room left, wisdom teeth may cause misalignment by pushing neighboring teeth out of place.
- You have tissue inflammation. Wisdom teeth that are impacted can cause inflammation around the tooth called pericoronitis. This usually affects lower wisdom teeth and it happens when the tooth erupts partially and leaves a flap of tissue that traps bacteria and food. Without extracting the wisdom tooth, pericoronitis is likely to be a recurring issue.
