Wisdom tooth extraction is a standard procedure that involves removing one or more of the third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, from the back of the mouth. These teeth often emerge in the late teenage years or early adulthood and can cause various problems if they are not correctly aligned or do not have enough room to come in properly. When wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning they are stuck in the jawbone or gum tissue, they can cause pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth. They can also lead to crowding and misalignment of the other teeth, which can affect your smile’s overall health and appearance.
At Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre, we have extensive experience in wisdom tooth extraction, and we take a careful and thorough approach to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients. Our dentists use advanced technology and techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure a quick recovery. Wisdom tooth and adult tooth extractions typically require general anesthesia to numb the entire body and put the patient to sleep. However, at Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre, our dental surgeons have over 14 years of experience and expertise in performing these surgeries using local anesthesia, which is more affordable and often just as effective. We have a reputation for providing a painless experience for our patients, and many of them do not feel the need for general anesthesia.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your wisdom teeth or have been advised to have them removed by a dentist or family doctor, we encourage you to contact Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre to learn more about your options. Our team will be happy to answer any questions and help you make an informed decision about your oral health. Remember, early treatment of wisdom teeth problems can prevent more serious issues from developing.
