Unfortunately, wisdom teeth don't make you wise. In fact, sometimes the wisest thing you can do with wisdom teeth is to have them extracted. At Guerrino Dentistry, we understand that not everyone looks forward to going to the dentist. And when you're talking about extracting teeth, the apprehension can be even worse for many individuals. But with our comfortable setting and caring staff, we will put you at ease and make your wisdom teeth extraction as smooth and painless as possible.
Dental exams should, of course, be done on a regular basis. But not everyone adheres to this piece of advice. And even if you've taken perfect care of your teeth, when your wisdom teeth come in, all sorts of problems can arise. They can become impacted, crowd the rest of your teeth, and because they are hard to reach, can be subject to developing cavities, even when your other teeth are fine. When you have problems with your wisdom teeth, Guerrino Dentistry, can come to the rescue.
An oral surgeon or dentist may do a wisdom tooth extraction (pull your wisdom tooth or teeth) if you are experiencing dental problems such as the following:
Before your procedure (wisdom teeth extraction) takes place, a thorough exam will be done by one of our dentists. He or she will explain your options, get your dental and health history, answer any questions that you may have, discuss anesthesia, and fill you in on how long the appointment should take, how much time you'll need to take off of work or school, etc. The extraction procedure: The area in question will be numbed (some dentists offer a type of general anesthesia while others simply go with numbing the area). Once complete numbing has taken effect, the tooth will be extracted (removed). In some cases, to get all of the tooth out, bone or gums must be cut. If this happens, dissolving stitches will be placed so that the wound heals quickly. You may also notice that the dentist uses gauze pads to reduce the bleeding.
Guerrino Dentistry offers the extraction of wisdom teeth and, when necessary, other teeth as well. Though not done for wisdom teeth, we also offer dental implants to replace missing teeth so that you can once again enjoy a full, radiant smile. If you feel that you may be a candidate for wisdom teeth extraction, your best bet is to see a dental professional. There's no reason to suffer with impacted wisdom teeth or to have your beautifully aligned teeth crowded and misaligned by invasive wisdom teeth. For your convenience, Guerrino Dentistry has several locations, including Mt Vernon, Scarsdale, and Hartsdale. We look forward to serving you and taking care of your dental needs.
