Are your wisdom teeth coming in? Do you have a tooth infection that needs to be addressed? Our office offers tooth extraction treatment in Bladenboro, NC. This general dental solution can prevent the spread of infection and tooth damage. By removing problem teeth, patients can restore health to their smiles. Some patients may believe that dental extractions cause undue pain and sensitivity. However, extractions ultimately remove pain caused by impacted, infected, and severely misaligned teeth. We also use anesthetic and sedation for pain-free care.
Simple vs. Complex Tooth Extractions
Our office has an oral surgeon on staff to provide comfortable extractions for our patients. There are two types of extractions, simple and complex. Simple extractions remove teeth that are visible and above the gum line. For these extractions, the tooth is rocked back and forth and loosened for removal. Complex tooth extractions are needed for teeth below the gum line. Our oral surgeon needs to cut through the tissue to remove these teeth. Many infected or overcrowded teeth only require simple extraction. Wisdom teeth usually require complex extractions that use dental sedation. After extracting infected teeth, we will recommend a dental implant for a balanced and healthy bite.
Removing Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow in the mouth. They typically emerge when patients are in their late teens or 20’s. Many patients need wisdom tooth extractions because their teeth are impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth typically do not have enough room to emerge properly. They can damage the molars and cause pain, swelling, and even gum or tooth infection.
Although not every patient encounters impacted wisdom teeth, we will take x-rays to keep track of these third molars to ensure they do not cause any problems. Please let our office know if you are experiencing pain in the back of the mouth, as this may be a sign that you need your wisdom teeth removed.
