Removal Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Some third molars also known as wisdom teeth can’t be properly maintained due to their misaligned eruption pattern. The result of their improper positioning makes it difficult to clean and maintain the area around them.

To avoid such problems, the decision may be made to remove the tooth.

Once the site is thoroughly numbed the dentist will need to expose and remove the tissues that overlie the impacted tooth.

By sectioning the tooth into smaller parts it improves the dentist’s ability to remove the entire tooth through a smaller opening, minimizing the amount of bone that needs to be removed to take out the tooth and thereby helping to reduce recovery time.
