Extractions | Dentist Ruddell Road Lacey




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 of Ruddell Road, your experienced Ruddell Road Lacey dental team 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 Ruddell Road Lacey dentist at Light Dental Studios of Ruddell Road will tell you whether your stitches need to be removed. A folded cotton gauze pad placed over the wound will help stop the bleeding.

If you are in need of immediate wisdom teeth extractions, Please contact our Ruddell Road Lacey dental office today!
