Wisdom Teeth RemovalDr. Hanna Lindskog on wisdom teeth removal Read Transcript
We offer the removal of wisdom teeth here in our office at Houston Uptown Dentists. We're able to do that with sedation if the patient desires. All of our patients receive local anesthesia. So even if they are sedated, they're able to have their wisdom teeth taken out with little discomfort.
As well as with our other extractions, and with our wisdom teeth, we provide great post-operative care for our patients. We give them thorough instructions of how to take care of the area so that they're able to be comfortable at home after the procedure.
If you are experiencing jaw pain in the back of your mouth, your wisdom teeth may be coming in and causing problems. If you think you or your child might need a wisdom teeth removal, contact Houston Uptown Dentists!
Reasons To Have A Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure
Wisdom teeth can cause a lot of problems when they begin to come in. Because your wisdom teeth are your last adult teeth to emerge, they can:
- Become impacted, or stuck in your gums
- Come in crooked or sideways, causing crowding and damaging other teeth
- Only partially erupt
Determining If Wisdom Teeth Removal Is Right For You
Before we recommend a tooth removal for your wisdom teeth, we will perform a thorough examination. Using state-of-the-art digital X-rays, we will get a clear idea of the position and progress of your wisdom teeth. This will also help us plan the best approach for extracting your wisdom teeth.
