Wisdom Tooth RemovalDr. Weddell on oral surgery Read Transcript
We never want to remove a tooth, but sometimes we have a point where we have to remove specific teeth. I'm very good at doing oral surgery. I was in a rural area for a lot of years and I'm very comfortable removing a lot of teeth when I need to. I'm also comfortable doing the surgery to put implants in place for patients. When I do need to refer someone to the specialist for a specific reason, I have lots of specialists very nearby that are very capable that I'm able to use. If I can do it, I know I can make the patient comfortable and happy, and most of the time, they don't even realize I'm already done. Absolutely, we can certainly do that to make people comfortable.
Not everyone needs their wisdom tooth removal. After your dental exam, Bloomington, MN dentist Dr. Weddell can tell you what’s best for your oral health. If you do need your wisdom tooth removal, you’ll likely have it done between your late teens and early twenties.
Dr. Weddell might advise that you or your family member have your wisdom teeth removed if:
- They are coming in at an angle
- They are going to cause overcrowding
- They have not fully erupted, leaving you open to infection
- They are causing you pain or discomfort
- They are coming in underneath your other teeth
- They will be too difficult for you to brush or floss properly
After your wisdom tooth removal, Weddell Dental will give you thorough aftercare instructions so you heal without complication.
Sometimes, if you have a bad tooth, it can be saved by a root canal treatment. Other times, it’s necessary for your tooth to be removed and replaced with a replacement tooth like a dental implant. The sooner you seek out treatment, the greater the likelihood Dr. Weddell can save your tooth.
