Sometimes, a tooth is so far decayed that the best option for it is to pull it. If this is the case, tooth extraction may be necessary. This can help prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth. Once your tooth is extracted, Dr. Cho and our staff can help you decide about the best restorative options available to you.
During your extraction, sedation dentistry is available. This applies to both regular tooth extraction and wisdom teeth extraction.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
The unique human jaw can usually only accommodate 28 teeth. However, when wisdom teeth surface, they add 4 more teeth to your mouth. This makes a grand total of 32 teeth. Typically, the jaw does not have enough space to house these 4 extra teeth. This creates crowding, dental pain, and dental discomfort.
Most people’s third molars, or wisdom teeth, emerge during late adolescence or their early 20s, ranging from the ages 17 to 25.
The surfacing of wisdom teeth can even lead to decay or infection. Often, wisdom teeth become impacted, or stuck, in awkward positions. This can expose them to infection and potentially damage your other teeth.
Many patients opt for early wisdom teeth removal in order to prevent future dental issues. In the long run, wisdom tooth extraction is usually more cost-effective and convenient to your oral health.
