Wisdom Teeth Removal In Fresno

wisdom teeth removal in Fresno and ClovisOur caring doctors preserve natural teeth as often as possible, but sometimes, tooth extraction is the best way to protect a healthy smile, and wisdom teeth removal is the most common form of tooth extraction. Our doctors also complete extractions when teeth are too damaged for root canals or dental restorations at both of our practices.

Patients find that their remaining teeth function better after tooth extraction and replacement. They are able to avoid the severe infection and discomfort that would steadily worsen if they hadn’t sought treatment.

When Should a Tooth be Extracted?

Most adult mouths can properly accommodate twenty-eight teeth. Wisdom teeth typically add four teeth that the mouth doesn’t often have room to hold. Wisdom teeth put patients at risk for crowding, pain, and infection.

It is important for all young adult and adult patients to ask their dentist about wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth can force the smile to become crooked, uncomfortable, and dysfunctional.

There are other reasons for tooth extraction besides wisdom teeth removal. Some of these alternative purposes include:

Overcrowding | If you’re ready to achieve a straight and beautiful smile, ask our doctors about your current smile alignment. Some patients require tooth extraction to reduce crowding and prepare the mouth for orthodontics.
Tooth Decay | When dental fillings aren’t enough, extraction might be the best option to prevent the infection from spreading.

The Tooth Extraction Procedure

tooth extractions Fresno and ClovisIf the affected tooth is fully erupted, a non-surgical extraction will take place. During a non-surgical tooth extraction, our doctors will rock the tooth back and forth to loosen it. She will then gently pull it from the socket.

When wisdom teeth are extracted before they have erupted, your dentist will perform a surgical extraction. During this type of wisdom teeth removal, our Fresno doctors will create a small opening in the gums. She will elevate the gum tissue and remove the tooth in small pieces.

"My experience at OnCall Dental was great! The staff and the doctor made me feel so comfortable. He extracted my top wisdom teeth in less than 5 minutes I didn’t feel a thing. Also I didn’t have to take the pain killers I was prescribed because I had no pain at all but I did get a bit swollen but that is totally normal and the healing process was fast! I am definitely going back for future dental work!"
