Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties. Often, these teeth can cause complications if they do not have enough room to grow properly. Our skilled dentist and team provide expert care in wisdom teeth removal to prevent potential problems and maintain oral health.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth removal is a preventative measure to avoid serious dental issues in the future. Dr. Sangita Chandran recommends extraction based on thorough examinations and X-rays to assess the position and health of these teeth.

Common Reasons for Removal:

  • Impaction: Wisdom teeth are often impacted, meaning they cannot fully emerge and can lead to pain, infection or cysts.
  • Overcrowding: Emerging wisdom teeth can push other teeth out of alignment, disrupting the orthodontic or natural alignment of teeth.
  • Hygiene Difficulties: Partially emerged wisdom teeth can create a flap of gum tissue that traps food and bacteria, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

The Procedure:

  • Assessment: We conduct a detailed assessment including X-rays to determine the best approach for extraction.
  • Sedation and Extraction: Various sedation options are available to ensure comfort during the procedure. The extraction involves removing the tooth and any impacted bone or tissue.
  • Recovery: Post-procedure, patients receive personalized care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
