Why Should You Get Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Wisdom teeth are the third or final set of molars that erupt in late teens or early twenties. Sometimes, they grow healthy and properly aligned, but most times, they grow impact and require wisdom tooth removal. They can be angled toward or away or can be outward or inward. Misaligned wisdom tooth can damage adjacent teeth, nerves and jawbone by making them more vulnerable to decay, so it is important to get your wisdom tooth if it is impacted.

Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure:

Before having your wisdom tooth removed, our dentist near Preston will give you an injection of local anaesthetic to numb the tooth and the surrounding area. If you are worried about the procedure, we will even give you a sedative to help you relax. Once you start to feel the numbness, we will make an incision in the gum to gain access to the tooth. If the tooth can’t be removed in full, we will break down the tooth into small pieces to make it easier for removal. After removing the tooth, we will stitch the incision.
