Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Dublin, CA

Letting Go of Unnecessary Teeth

Among early civilizations, third molars (wisdom teeth) were crucial to ensuring proper nutrition. Because much of the food consumed during those times consisted of dense game, these chewing teeth helped to tear through the tough meat. Over time, though, humans developed new diets and saw their facial structures narrowing. As a result, these teeth became unnecessary. Now that the wisdom teeth no longer serve a purpose, they can cause discomfort and place healthy teeth at risk of damage or decay. If you have a teen who is complaining of tooth pain, don’t wait to call. Our team will happily set up an appointment for further examination to see if they need wisdom tooth extractions in Dublin.

The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

Although the idea of having one or all four wisdom teeth removed might seem daunting, it is a procedure that is regularly performed and produces beautiful results. After meeting with a member of our team, we will prepare you or your teen to receive local anesthesia. This will help to numb the mouth so that you feel no pain.

The position of each wisdom tooth will be considered when preparing for surgery, as those that are partially erupted will be removed with a dental elevator and dental forceps. Teeth that are impacted, though, will require a more surgical approach that involves opening the gum tissue to expose the underlying tooth. It will be sectioned and removed in pieces to avoid causing further damage to the bone.
