Wisdom Teeth Removal Baltimore
Your wisdom teeth are the last molars at the back of your jaw. They normally erupt between the ages of eighteen and twenty-two. However, sometimes when these third molars do not get enough space, they get impacted or trapped. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, bad breath, swelling, bleeding gums, headaches, infection, as well as injury. Sometimes, however, the impact may not show any symptoms but can become extremely hard to clean and consequentially more susceptible to decay.
Surgical Extraction of the third molars:
Surgery is by far the only solution for impacted wisdom teeth. Dr. Elnadi and his team of experts have extensive training in wisdom tooth extraction in Baltimore Md. They are capable of handling the most complex of cases with ease. Moreover, to make surgery a pleasant experience, the staff is trained in using anesthesia depending on the complexity of the extraction and the patient’s level of comfort.
How do we perform the surgery?
During the process of tooth extraction, one of the dentists:
- Makes a cut in the gum to expose the bone and tooth
- Removes the bone that blocks the wisdom tooth
- Divides the tooth into several sections to make removal easier
- Extracts the tooth
- Cleans the area of any debris
- Stitches the incision back to support healing, if needed
- Puts gauze over the area to control excessive bleeding
