About Our Auburn Wisdom Tooth Extraction
If you are experiencing problems with your wisdom teeth, it may be a good idea to have them extracted. Prior to your wisdom tooth extraction, a local anesthetic will be applied. Depending on your preferences, we also have sedation dentistry available which can provide a more relaxed experience. During your wisdom teeth extraction, we may have to cut your gums or bone to remove the entire tooth properly. Once completed, the area may be stitched closed to ensure quick healing. After a few days, your stitches should fully dissolve. For more complex wisdom teeth cases, we may refer you to an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for treatment.
Patients that neglect to remove problematic wisdom teeth often experience further complications which can result in damaged teeth and even serious infections. It is best to have your wisdom teeth evaluated for any signs of a problem.
