Wisdom Teeth Removal Pensacola

Wisdom teeth removal (or extraction) is a common dental procedure that many teens and adults undergo. These teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge in the back of the mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. However, issues with wisdom teeth are unique for every patient, they may not always need to be removed.

Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Removal

There are several reasons why a person may need to have their wisdom teeth removed. One of the most common is that there is not enough room in the mouth for the teeth to properly emerge. This can cause the teeth to become impacted, or trapped beneath the gum line, which can lead to pain, infection, and even damage to adjacent teeth and jawbone. 

Another reason for wisdom teeth removal is that they may be growing at an angle or in the wrong direction, which can also cause pain and damage to adjacent teeth. In some cases, wisdom teeth may also be causing problems with the alignment of the bite or the positioning of other teeth, and removal may be necessary to correct these issues.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Pensacola

Wisdom teeth removal is typically performed by an oral surgeon, who will administer local anesthesia or IV sedation to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure. The surgeon will then make an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and surrounding bone and may need to remove some bone tissue to fully extract the tooth.

Depending on the position of the tooth and its roots, the surgeon may need to break the tooth into smaller pieces to facilitate its removal. Once the tooth has been fully removed, the surgeon will clean the extraction site and may place stitches to promote healing.
