Wisdom Teeth Removal
The wisdom teeth are the last molars to arrive and the ones that are most likely to cause oral problems. These large molars come in near adulthood, either the late teens or early twenties. While some people have no trouble with the arrival of their wisdom teeth, others may experience teeth crowding, pain, impaction or other issues. At Restore Dental, we offer stress-free wisdom teeth removal for patients at our dental clinic in Highlands Ranch.
The four wisdom teeth are the final molars at all four corners of the mouth. In some cases, there is not enough room for wisdom teeth to emerge within a smaller mouth. The wisdom teeth may push against other teeth, causing crowding and misalignment. In some cases, these big molars become impacted in the gums or grow in the wrong direction. Wisdom teeth abnormalities can contribute to other dental and orthodontic issues, which is why removal, or extraction, may be recommended.
Painless Wisdom Tooth Extraction
If you need one or all of your wisdom teeth removed, there is no reason to fear. This is a common procedure, and it can be performed without pain or discomfort. Dr. Chiu will completely numb the tooth and gum tissue with a local anesthetic. We also offer sedation options like oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide that can help you relax during your procedure. You will need to rest in the days following your extraction, but recovery is quick if you follow your post-procedure instructions.
Wisdom teeth removal does not need to be a stressful experience. If you or your teenager needs one or more wisdom teeth removed, contact us at Restore Dental to schedule your appointment. We offer wisdom teeth removal and sedation dentistry options at our dental center in Highlands Ranch, CO.
