La Mesa Oral Surgery: Wisdom Teeth Extraction and More
Our La Mesa oral surgical team perform a variety of procedures, including wisdom teeth extraction. Wisdom teeth are also referred to as the third molars, located in the very back of your mouth. The most common age to evaluate them is between 17 to 24 years old.
Wisdom tooth extraction may help prevent overcrowding. Wisdom tooth extraction may be necessary in cases of impacted wisdom teeth, which means the wisdom teeth cannot push through the gums completely. Impacted wisdom teeth are prone to infection and chronic irritation.
Oral surgery services always start with a dental evaluation to determine if surgery is necessary to relieve or prevent a problem. Prior to surgery, we may administer a mild anesthetic to help patients relax and avoid discomfort. While wisdom teeth extraction is a routine procedure, our La Mesa oral surgeon treats every patient as an individual and follows strict guidelines to reduce pain and increase patient safety.
If you are missing a tooth, our office also performs dental implants, a permanent solution to missing teeth. During the procedure, an artificial tooth root made of titanium is inserted into the jawbone, which provides a sturdy foundation for a crown.
You might feel a little anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist, especially if the visit involves cavity drilling, tooth implants, or removal of impacted wisdom teeth. Everyone is different – some people require only local anesthesia while others break out into a sweat during the consultation. Because you are an educated consumer and patient, however, you know that you need to take care of your dental problems before they spiral out of control.
We understand your concerns and promise to deliver high-quality oral surgery care as quickly and painlessly as possible. Our caring and compassionate team will go the extra mile to make your experience is relaxing and pleasant. Most oral surgeries require only local anesthesia but if you are having an extensive procedure or are just nervous, we can provide sedation dentistry to help you relax prior to and during treatment.
