Wisdom Tooth/Teeth Extraction in Washington, DC

Your third molars are commonly known as your wisdom teeth. They are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second set of molars. When these teeth come in, they can cause complications. This is why it is common for your dentist to recommend wisdom tooth/teeth extraction in Washington, DC. Wisdom teeth are often removed before reaching their maturity and before they become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth are teeth that are not able to erupt properly because they are blocked by other teeth in the jaw. This can create a number of uncomfortable and painful symptoms and complications that you will want to avoid at all costs! Most people have four wisdom teeth. However, some people have none or fewer than four. These individuals are referred to as having “impacted wisdom teeth.” There are cases of individuals who do not develop any wisdom teeth at all. These are known as being “born without wisdom teeth.” Regardless of how many you have, it is important to visit the dentist regularly to monitor them. This way, if they are causing problems, you and your dentist can discuss the possibility of wisdom tooth/teeth extraction in Washington, DC.

What Happens During a Wisdom tooth/teeth Extraction in Washington, DC?

Before we begin the wisdom tooth/teeth extraction in Washington, DC, we’ll provide you with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the bright light we use for our treatments. Once you’re ready, we administer an anesthetic to numb the area, so you’ll feel no pain during the procedure. We’ll then create a small opening in your gums and extract the tooth. We use gauze to stop the bleeding and then place sutures to close the area.

You can expect to feel some sensitivity once you’ve left the appointment. We recommend sticking to a soft diet and avoiding hot or cold foods or beverages for the first day or so as the anesthesia wears off.
