We use modern equipment and effective anesthesia techniques to make the process as comfortable as possible.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last to erupt in your oral cavity. If they appear normally, they may not cause any complications. However, in most cases, they erupt at an irregular angle or remain impacted. Our Ceres, CA, dentists may suggest wisdom tooth extraction under the following circumstances:

  • Severe or lasting pain at the back of the mouth
  • Partly or fully impacted wisdom teeth
  • Chance of gum infections and pericoronitis
  • Lack of space for other teeth
  • Damaged or decayed third molars
  • Bite disturbance
  •  Radiating pain in the jaw, head, and neck area
  • Inflammation in the oral or facial tissues
  • Tumors or cysts near the wisdom teeth

Safe Approach For Wisdom Tooth Extraction In Ceres, CA

Our team starts with a thorough clinical and radiological examination to assess the problematic wisdom teeth. Based on their location, shape, number of roots, and other factors, we will select between simple or surgical tooth removals. Both procedures are done under local anesthesia.
If the wisdom tooth is visible above the gum line and is easy to reach, our Ceres, CA, team will proceed with simple wisdom tooth removal. We will first loosen the tooth within its socket using an elevator. When it is movable enough, we will carefully pull it out with the help of dental forceps.
The procedure for surgical extraction is more invasive, as it needs an incision over the gums to expose the impacted tooth. After incising the gums, we will remove a thin part of the bone to gently manipulate the tooth out of its socket. After removal, our dentist will place sutures to close the extraction wound.

What To Expect From The Recovery Period?

Most wisdom teeth extractions are surgical, so the healing period may last longer than that of a simple extraction. Our Ceres, CA, team will provide detailed instructions after a successful wisdom tooth extraction to help you recover smoothly.
We suggest eating soft foods for the first few days and avoiding hot or spicy food as they may hurt the wound. As the extraction site improves, you can slowly move to a normal diet. Follow good oral hygiene practices to keep the wound clean and infection-free. Take your medications as advised to manage post-extraction symptoms. If any problem occurs, let our dentists know as soon as possible.
