Wisdom Tooth Removal in Orlando, FL: Overmeyer Family Dental
You probably know someone who has had their wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in an adult’s mouth. Sometimes, they never come in at all! However, if they do, they are often accompanied by some sort of problem. Whether your wisdom teeth have become impacted or they are causing orthodontic problems, we can help with our Wisdom tooth removal service. Overmeyer Family Dental is your source for top-notch dental care all under one roof!
Common Wisdom Teeth Problems
There are a variety of reasons your wisdom teeth may need to be removed. In fact, the need to remove them is very common, and the patient often has no control over it. Typically, problems with your wisdom teeth are not your fault. We will be happy to help you tackle any of these issues.
- Underdeveloped teeth
- Incorrect growth (i.e., they grow in sideways)
- Impaction (they can’t break through the gums)
- Orthodontic problems (crowding)
If you are feeling pain or are noticing anything else abnormal in your mouth, please give us a call. We will be happy to examine your situation and help you determine the correct path forward and whether you need a wisdom tooth extraction.
The Extraction Procedure
A wisdom tooth extraction procedure will depend on a number of things:
- What is the position of the tooth? Is it impacted?
- How many teeth are being removed?
- Does the patient have any other dental/medical problems?
Once we assess the situation (this typically happens at a visit prior to your procedure, via X-rays and other examinations), we can tell you more about how we will go about removing the tooth or teeth. Generally, a problem wisdom tooth is usually extracted by surgical methods. Our team is experienced with this type of procedure and will work hard to make sure you receive excellent results.
Does It Hurt?
Before your wisdom tooth removal procedure begins, we will apply a local anesthetic to the area. This anesthetic will completely numb your tooth, gum tissue, and bone to allow for an easy, painless extraction. Truly, we work hard to make sure you don’t feel any discomfort at all.
If you are still a little nervous about your wisdom tooth removal (even with the knowledge that we use an anesthetic), we can help calm your anxiety using inhaled dental sedation, also known as laughing gas. This gas is inhaled before as well as possible throughout the procedure to help you maintain a relaxed, euphoric state. To learn more about inhaled sedation, please visit our page on Relieving Dental Anxiety.
