Dentist for Extractions
The growth and removal of wisdom teeth are an aspect of dental health that few are able to dodge in their lifetimes. At some point, you may encounter immense pain and find yourself in need of a Dentist for Extractions. Dr. Andres de Cardenas is very skilled in various dental extractions and can be the reliable health care professional you are searching for.
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most individuals get in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes these teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal. As wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to come in or erupt, there is often not enough room left in your mouth to accommodate them. This can lead to wisdom teeth that are impacted, or found below the gum line and not erupted. If teeth are impacted, swelling and tenderness may occur in the area of the third molar.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Extractions are the surgical removal of a tooth, or teeth, by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a dentist like Dr. de Cardenas. Extracting a tooth is generally a straightforward procedure. Depending on your individual case and the number of teeth to be removed, either a local or a general anesthetic is used. The tooth is removed, any bleeding or discomfort is managed, and the recovery takes place at home. Dr. de Cardenas provides an exact set of instructions on what to do during the typically brief recovery from a dental extraction. As always if there are problems or concerns, Dr. de Cardenas and his staff are available to assist you.
A surgical extraction requires an incision to be made into your gum by the oral surgeon. This is a more complex procedure that is usually needed when a tooth has broken at the gum line or has not protruded through the gum. During your tooth extraction you could expect to feel pressure, but little to no pain. For a simple tooth removal, you may be given a local anesthetic, and for surgical tooth removal you will be given a local anesthetic and may have anesthesia through a vein.
