Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Here at Capital Dental Care, we are proud to offer wisdom teeth extraction for our patients in Raleigh, NC and the surrounding areas.
a wisdom tooth that erupts in a malposition can produce a pericoronitis. This is an inflection of the gums surrounding the wisdom tooth. And whose symptoms include pain, swelling, bleeding or bad breath. The extraction of wisdom teeth solves this problem.
But if the opposite tooth is not removed, due to having any contact with the opposite one, it will extrude slowly. So, it can cause unwanted premature contacts and again an inflammation of the lower gum.
If the wisdom tooth is in a horizontal position, it can get in contact with the second molar causing it damage which may even end with the loss of both pieces.
To remove a wisdom tooth that has not erupted, an incision is made and the overlying bone is removed. Then the tooth is extracted. The socket can be filled with different materials such as plasma rich in growth factors which accelerates healing. Finally, the area is sutured
Though surgery can be scary, our skilled dentists and the entire staff at Capital Dental Care will be glad to help you throughout the process. We will explain the whole procedure step by step until you are comfortable. We are also here for you after you go home. We are just a phone call away.
