A “Wise” Precaution to Protect Your Oral Health

Most people develop a third set of molars during their teens or early twenties. While some individuals can retain these “wisdom teeth” for a lifetime and suffer no problems because of them, others need to get them removed. That is because most people’s mouths are too small to accommodate the wisdom teeth. Here at Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut, we have all the skills and equipment necessary to perform wisdom tooth extractions in East Hartford, CT.

The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

Wisdom teeth are often fully or partially impacted (stuck beneath the gum line), which means that removing them is more complex than performing a routine tooth extraction. In order to access the wisdom teeth, we may have to create an incision in the gums and/or break the teeth into pieces. After the teeth are out, we close any incisions. Sedation and anesthesia ensure that patients feel little to nothing during the extraction procedure, but it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort afterward. Most patients are able to get back to their normal eating and drinking habits about one week following their treatment.
