Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The extraction of wisdom teeth is one of the most common oral surgeries performed in the United States. Wisdom teeth erupt during the late teen and early adult years in many people, yet there is often not enough room in the mouth for these teeth to fit comfortable or without upsetting the natural alignment of the rest of the teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth require extraction so that they do not shift the surrounding teeth or become infected.

As part of our dental care services at Pleasant Plains Dental, we are able to perform wisdom teeth extraction in our office. Dr. Henry J. Ernst, DMD, offers the highest quality wisdom teeth extraction procedures. Wisdom teeth extraction is an outpatient surgery performed under appropriate sedation to maximize patient comfort, so there is no need for concern that you will feel pain during the procedure. Our entire staff provides considerate and compassionate dental care for patients of all ages. If you or your child has never had wisdom teeth extraction performed, it is important that you undergo an X-ray to determine whether your wisdom teeth are present and, if they are, what the appropriate steps are.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is typically a necessary surgical procedure done to ensure the health and correct alignment of the entire mouth. Teeth that fail to break through the gum tissue are called “impacted,” and these teeth can cause significant damage to the surrounding teeth. When wisdom teeth are impacted, they require removal in order to prevent overcrowding and displacement of the teeth.

Pleasant Plains Dental offers effective wisdom tooth removal for patients of all ages. The majority of people in the United States have their wisdom teeth and they generally require removal to ensure the health of the mouth.
