Are your wisdom teeth emerging? Do you have frequent toothaches because of a dental infection? Prevent the spread of tooth decay and damage with a dental extraction. Extractions are general dental treatments that stop further oral health problems resulting from impacted or infected teeth. Dr. Mohamed Hassan offers tooth extraction treatment to patients at iSmile in Dundalk, MD.
Dental Extractions in Dundalk, MD
We make sure that patients feel as comfortable as possible during their dental extraction. We use local anesthetic to numb the treated area for simple extractions, where we remove teeth above the gum line. Complex extractions require anesthetic and dental sedation. We remove teeth at or below the gum line for these types of extractions.
After removing the teeth, we provide patients with gauze to place at the extraction site. Gauze helps create blood clots which protect the area and allow the site to heal. If the clot is dislodged, patients can experience dry socket, which exposes the nerve and bone. Dry socket is highly painful. We encourage patients to call our office if they experience this condition so we can help.
Why Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth are known as the third molars because they emerge in the back of the mouth. Many patients will find that their wisdom teeth come in when they are in their late teens or early twenties. In many cases, wisdom teeth need to be extracted if they are impacted.
Impacted teeth do not have enough room to emerge. As a result, they can dig into adjacent teeth and cause extreme pain. Contact our office if you notice pain behind your molars or feel your wisdom teeth emerging. We take dental x-rays at regular visits to keep track of emerging dental issues, including wisdom teeth. Our team will schedule an extraction for you to prevent problems like tooth damage, overcrowded teeth, and tooth pain.
