Alex Bell Dental provides safe wisdom tooth extraction for Dayton area residents
Third molars, also called “wisdom teeth,” have become a source of worry for many teenagers and young adults. They are the last teeth to break through the gum line and can bring with them a whole host of problems. Most people do not have room in their mouths for wisdom teeth, which causes them to become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be very painful, but with oral surgery, they can be safely removed.
Our team at Alex Bell Dental offers patients in Dayton and the surrounding areas the convenience of wisdom tooth extraction in our office. We can help patients find relief from the pain associated with impacted wisdom teeth and have them on their way.
The number one reason patients need to have their wisdom teeth removed is impaction. Others may need them removed prior to receiving orthodontic treatment or to help improve their oral health. Because wisdom teeth are located so far back in the mouth, when they do emerge they can be extremely difficult to clean. This can increase the risk of plaque buildup, which could potentially turn into tooth decay or gum disease. By removing the wisdom teeth, we can drastically reduce the potential for problems in the future.
Dr. Cobb and his team can help determine if you will require wisdom teeth extraction. We will perform a comprehensive examination along with x-rays to look at the wisdom teeth and the way they are emerging.
During oral surgery, patients are given a sedative and local anesthetic to help them relax and ensure comfort during treatment. Once the teeth have been extracted, you will be given aftercare instructions to take home with you. The healing process can vary for each individual. We will have you back to the office for a follow-up visit to make sure everything is healing properly and let you know when you can return to your normal routine and diet. We take every step to make sure the entire process is safe, quick, and comfortable.
