Woodstock area patients visit 32 Dental for wisdom tooth removal
Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental in the Woodstock area understand the complexities of the smile. They know that dental health and wellness is not always in the hands of the patients¬ – conditions can develop that are outside of their control. The most common example of this is impacted wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth are the third molars that develop in the back of the mouth. Most patients have four, but some can have up to eight. Often, these teeth become impacted. This means they have no room to erupt through the gum line and they become "stuck" in the bone. They can turn and push against the surrounding teeth, causing patients pain and discomfort. At this point, we encourage individuals to visit a dentist to determine the best course of action for treatment.
When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, the best solution is removal. It is not important for these teeth to be in the mouth, and they can be removed without any implications. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley can provide both surgical extraction and simple extraction, depending on whether the tooth is visible above the gum line. Both are done with proper anesthetic for comfort to the patient. Simple extraction requires the tooth to be easily pulled from the bone, while surgical extraction requires the dentist to cut into the gum line to access the teeth for removal.
