Wisdom Teeth Bothering You?

Have Them Removed by the Expert

Wisdom teeth, also known as 3rd molars, usually erupt through the gums in our late teens or early 20s. We say usually because wisdom teeth sometimes don’t break fully through the gums and sometimes don’t erupt at all.

When they cause problems, they’re known as impacted wisdom teeth. These teeth may press against healthy adjacent teeth and cause them to become misaligned. What’s more, the odd angles that they sometimes grow in make wisdom teeth difficult to clean, hence more prone to decay. CT Dental Implant Center is your practice of choice for problematic wisdom teeth in Danbury, CT.

Specialized 3rd Molar Extraction, Smooth Recovery

Wisdom tooth extraction is different from standard tooth extractions. While the doctor uses a pair of forceps to pull those teeth out, wisdom teeth extractions are more complex surgical procedures best left to credentialed oral surgeons such as Dr. Gedeon. During your procedure, he may open your gums and remove the teeth in sections. Not to worry—he’s certified to administer anesthesia options including IV sedation, which will put you in a sleep-like state for the duration of your procedure. You won’t feel anything or even know your treatment is happening.

Wisdom teeth don’t ever need to be replaced after extraction, so once they’re out you won’t have to worry about them anymore. However, there are steps you can take to ensure a smooth recovery. Don’t rinse your mouth or drink anything with a straw at first. Your empty tooth sockets will develop blood clots as part of the healing process. If they fail to develop or they come loose the nerves and bone underneath become exposed, leaving you with a painful complication called dry socket. Follow all of Dr. Gedeon’s instructions to avoid this problem!
