Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Anaheim, CA

Better Oral Health Without the Extra Teeth

It is considered a rite of passage for teenagers and young adults to undergo wisdom teeth extractions. Because these third molars do not typically erupt until a person is between the ages of 17 and 25, there is often little remaining space inside the mouth, causing the potential for serious issues to develop. At Anaheim Dental & Orthodontics, we want to help you avoid these problems by providing safe wisdom tooth extraction. Our in-house oral surgeon will examine your mouth to determine the appropriate method of removal, ensuring better oral health for the future. Call us today if you or your teenager need to schedule an appointment.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed?

Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. Those that erupt and cause no pain or problems with nearby healthy teeth can often remain in place. However, for the majority of people, wisdom teeth extractions are necessary, and here are a few reasons why:

 

  • The teeth are impacted, which means they are below the gumline and cannot erupt properly
  • They are partially erupted and causing problems with your oral health
  • Cysts are forming around the teeth and increasing your risk of infection
  • They are erupting at an awkward angle and pressing against your healthy teeth, which can lead to misalignment and possible orthodontic treatment

 

What to Expect with Wisdom Tooth Extractions

A normal wisdom tooth extraction requires a member of our team to administer local anesthesia before proceeding with the removal process. This includes using dental instruments to extract the tooth from its socket. However, if the tooth is impacted, our oral surgeon will need to make a small incision and remove the tooth in pieces. No matter the type of extraction you need (simple or surgical), our team is here to ensure you remain comfortable the entire time.
