Is your emerging wisdom tooth causing pain and soreness? A wisdom tooth extraction may be the best way to preserve your overall oral health and restore your comfort.

At Gardena Dental Care, we provide expert wisdom tooth extractions with a minimal recovery time. We work hard to minimize recovery time, so that you can properly maintain your oral health without having to miss extended periods of school or work.

Why Is a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Important?

A wisdom tooth extraction can be a necessary procedure for many people as they get older. An emerging wisdom tooth (or teeth) can cause many serious complications if not removed, including:

  • Sinus complications: A surfacing wisdom tooth can cause congestion, sinus pressure, and pain.
  • Teeth overcrowding: This complication can undo the work done by braces, damage your alignment, and cause intense pain.
  • Impacted wisdom tooth: An impacted wisdom tooth happens when a surfacing wisdom tooth becomes stuck completely underneath your gum's surface or is only partially able to emerge.

Who Needs Wisdom Teeth Extraction?

Wisdom tooth extraction is most common for older teenagers. It’s at this time that these teeth are starting to emerge and may cause problems with overcrowding of teeth. However, people of all ages get their wisdom teeth extracted, and you do not need to be a teenager to undergo wisdom tooth removal.

If you are older, you may still need your wisdom teeth removed for a variety of reasons. The wisdom teeth are harder to clean and thus may be more prone to cavities. They can also gather plaque and tartar that causes gum disease.

Not everyone needs their wisdom teeth extracted. If you have a lot of room in your mouth and your wisdom teeth aren’t causing problems, then you may not need wisdom teeth extraction. Our dentist will determine whether you might benefit from wisdom teeth extraction in Gardena.

What Are the Benefits of a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Having wisdom teeth extracted is not a given, but it’s often a good idea. Why might it be a good idea? Here are a few reasons:

  • Removes the risk of a wisdom tooth infection
  • Eliminates soreness or pain that a wisdom tooth can cause
  • Stops possible teeth overcrowding
  • Helps maintain your oral health and comfort
  • Lessens the possibility of periodontal (gum) disease

How Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Prevent Gum Disease?

Wisdom teeth can potentially contribute to gum disease. Why? Because wisdom teeth are very hard to clean properly because they are so far back in the mouth. This means these are the teeth that are the most likely to develop plaque and tartar buildup. This enables bacteria to thrive, which can cause gingivitis and periodontitis, the two stages of gum disease.

Removing wisdom teeth makes it easier to clean the teeth and may lessen the chance of periodontal disease. Ask us if you have any questions about this.

What Is the Process of Extracting a Wisdom Tooth?

The process will start with a consultation, which involves an examination from our expert Dr. Omid Barkhordar and necessary x-rays to determine the placement of your wisdom teeth. Dr. Barkhordar will assess your specific needs in order to develop a customized treatment plan that will guarantee your comfort and reduce your recovery time.

On your appointment day, we will first properly administer a method of sedation to numb the teeth. You may also be given an oral sedative to take prior to the procedure. This will provide you with a painless and comfortable wisdom tooth extraction procedure. Dr. Barkhordar will next carefully and skillfully create an incision in your gum in order to remove the tissue connecting the wisdom tooth to the bone. He will then extract the tooth itself.

We will apply self-dissolving sutures and gauze in order to close off the extraction site from bacteria and debris, and to decrease bleeding. At the conclusion of your appointment, we'll give you any necessary medication prescriptions and specific care instructions to make sure your recovery is quick and comfortable.
