Wisdom Tooth Extraction in South Brunswick
An impacted wisdom tooth occurs when there is not enough room in the mouth for the wisdom tooth to erupt into a normal, functional position. Non-functional or impacted wisdom teeth can be a source of infection and can cause periodontal or occlusal (bite) problems. They may also cause damage to other teeth. It is for those reasons that the recommendation to remove wisdom teeth, even if they are asymptomatic, may be made to a young adult.
At Doctors of Dental Medicine our Oral Surgeon is expert at the removal of wisdom teeth. Using local anesthesia, nitrous oxide sedation and stereo head phones with the patient’s choice of music, most patients are pleasantly surprised at just how comfortable the procedure can be.
