Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people will get in their lifetime. Some people are able to keep their wisdom teeth without any complications. However, other people experience pain, discomfort and even infection with these teeth. Dr. Snyder provides a limited number of wisdom tooth extractions here in our Elkhart dental office.
Should They be Removed?
Wisdom teeth are usually removed when they are infected or causing damage to adjacent, healthy teeth. Some of the situations when a wisdom tooth extraction is necessary include:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Limited space in the jaws
- Decay or gum disease around the wisdom tooth
- Pressure against the adjacent tooth
- Partially erupted teeth that are difficult to clean
Sedation with Extractions
Sedation allows us to provide quality, comfortable dental care to everyone. We want our patients to remain comfortable throughout the entire extraction process. Our Elkhart dentist offers a number of sedation options to make sure your procedure is pain free.
