ToothHQ™ Dental Specialists
While most people won’t have trouble with their wisdom teeth, these teeth are often removed during ( @oralsurgery ) oral surgery to prevent more serious issues like an abscess. These teeth usually start to surface in a person’s late teen years and into their early 20s. Many times, they become impacted as they begin to emerge, growing sideways into the neighboring teeth or angled forward. Partially erupted teeth may present other issues as these teeth are difficult to care for and clean. Extractions are ordinarily handled by an oral surgeon on an outpatient basis. Most tooth extractions are part of a preventative measure to safeguard against changes in the alignment of the teeth during orthodontics or more severe difficulties.
Your encounter with oral surgery will vary based on how complex the extraction performed is.
