Extractions / Wisdom Teeth


Many patients do not have the room for their wisdom teeth to grow all the way in. When wisdom teeth are prevented from erupting into the mouth properly, they are referred to as impacted. Impacted teeth can result in infection, decay of adjacent teeth, gum disease or formation of a cyst or tumor from the follicle, which forms the crown of the tooth.

At Light Dental Studios, your dentist can evaluate the need to have your wisdom teeth removed. Many of our doctors are trained and capable of doing complex extractions of fully or partially impacted wisdom teeth.


What is a wisdom tooth extraction?

When wisdom teeth are prevented from erupting into the mouth properly, they are referred to as impacted.

Impacted teeth can result in infection, decay of adjacent teeth, gum disease or formation of a cyst or tumor from the follicle, which forms the crown of the tooth.

Your dentist recommends removal of impacted wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems.



What happens after the extraction?

After the tooth is removed, you may need stitches. Some stitches dissolve over time and some have to be removed after a few days.

Your dentists at Light Dental Studios will tell you whether your stitches need to be removed. A folded cotton gauze pad placed over the wound will help stop the bleeding.
