Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure used to remove one or more of the wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of the mouth- two on top and two at the bottom.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended when the tooth doesn’t have enough room to grow, resulting in pain, infections and other dental issues. Our dental surgeons surgically remove this impacted wisdom tooth, resolving the issues pain and other difficulties.
During the procedure, dental surgeons use one of the two types of anesthesia depending upon the complexity of the procedure. Local anesthesia involves injections near the site of extraction. By using a numbing cream, the dentist will first numb the area. With local anesthesia, you will not feel any pain, but will experience some pressure and movement during the procedure.
In some cases, general anesthesia is suggested for wisdom tooth removal. As a result, the patient will experience neither pain nor will have any memory of the procedure.
A gingiva transplant or gum graft is used to correct the effects of gum recession. Gum recession normally occurs when the gum tissue wears away to expose the root of the tooth. This will eventually cause the patient to suffer from increased sensitivity, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold foods. Because gum recession happens slowly, many people don’t realize its effects until it’s too late. While some people opt for the procedure for cosmetic reasons, most people are recommended to undergo this procedure to protect their teeth from exposure and eventual loss.
During the procedure, our periodontist removes the healthy gum tissue from the roof of the mouth to reconstruct the gum tissue over the teeth. The patient will be placed under local anesthesia to ensure that the procedure doesn’t hurt.
During the recovery, the patient will be asked to avoid flossing or brushing of the site, take prescribed antibiotics, use mouthwash to control plaque buildup, avoid exercises and smoking. The healing process will take 1 to 2 weeks, but may take longer in some other people. To ease the discomfort during the healing period, our periodontists suggest the use of painkillers apart from the prescribed medicines.
Apicoectomy is a procedure used to treat the root end, if an infection develops or continues even after a root canal treatment. Our dental surgeons recommend this surgery only if the root cannot be saved with conventional root canal treatment. Apicoectomy can help save the adjacent healthy teeth by preserving the function of your natural tooth.
Under local anesthesia, an incision is made near the gum to expose the infection and remove the inflamed tissue. The tip of the tooth’s root is removed and sealed with a small filling. The gum tissue is closed with the help of a few stitches. The bone heals around the root over the next few months.
