Wisdom Teeth Removal in Birmingham, MI

Gentle Extraction With Dr. Stone

Wisdom teeth are an extra set of molars that usually erupt during your late teens or early adulthood. When a wisdom tooth is blocked from erupting correctly, it becomes impacted. This can happen for several reasons, like not having enough space to accommodate the eruption of wisdom teeth– which can eventually lead to infection and overcrowding.

Learn about impacted wisdom teeth, the extraction process, and how Dr. Stone can help.

Signs of an Impacted Wisdom Tooth

Common signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include:

  • Bad breath, also known as halitosis
  • Pain or tenderness in the gums and jaw
  • Headaches or jaw aches
  • Inflamed and bleeding gums
  • Limited jaw function

It’s crucial to remove impacted wisdom teeth to prevent a number of problems, like severe pain, possible infection, and a misaligned bite. Without treatment, impacted wisdom teeth can cause additional health complications later on.

The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process

The wisdom tooth removal process is completely safe, effective, and completed right here at Birmingham Dentistry. Dr. Stone can extract your tooth in just a few simple steps:

  1.  We’ll begin by administering a local anesthetic to numb the extraction area. This will ensure that you feel comfortable and worry-free throughout the procedure.
  2. Once the anesthetic sets in, Dr. Stone will gently separate your wisdom tooth from the gum tissue. This allows us to remove your tooth in a quick and painless way.
  3. After your impacted wisdom tooth is removed, Dr. Stone will carefully stitch up your gums and you’ll begin the healing process.
