Many people feel apprehensive when they hear dental professionals talk about wisdom teeth. Many people assume that getting wisdom teeth removed is a long, painful process that requires a long recovery. However, modern equipment and methods make wisdom teeth removal easier and faster than ever. If you require wisdom teeth removal, consider setting up an appointment at our Perth Amboy dental practice.
Wisdom teeth often come in as misaligned or impacted. When impacted, they are still enclosed within the soft tissue, or only partially breaking through the gum line. Since it is only partially exposed, bacteria can easily enter the surroundings of the tooth, and cause infection. It can also cause pain, and facial and gum line swelling. Tooth decay and gum disease are also more prevalent in a partially erupted tooth as it is more difficult to brush and floss.
Removing wisdom teeth is a rather common surgery. A local anesthetic is commonly used.
