Tooth Extractions in Chicago, Illinois

Removing Wisdom Teeth

Most patients develop their wisdom teeth or third molars when they are in their late teens or early twenties. It has become common practice to remove wisdom teeth because of the many problems they can cause.

If a wisdom tooth develops incorrectly, we will need to remove it to prevent crooked and overcrowded teeth. We will also surgically remove impacted wisdom teeth. Sometimes they will harm the adjacent teeth. Wisdom teeth are also difficult to keep clean since they are far in the back of the mouth.

Many people simply skip flossing around them or don’t take the time to brush them. This will lead to tooth decay. Sometimes, if a patient elects to keep their wisdom tooth, they will feel tooth and gum pain, swelling gums, and other dental health issues.

In the end, simply extracting the wisdom tooth helps treat these symptoms and prevents further oral health problems. However, if they have come in straight and you have enough room for them, you do not have to remove them. As long as they are not causing problems and you can properly clean them, you can live your entire life with your wisdom teeth.

Types of Dental Extractions

Before your tooth extraction, Dr. Nechama Brand will take x-rays of your teeth and jaw to determine a treatment plan. Patients who require wisdom teeth removal will need a panoramic x-ray so that we can see a complete image of all their teeth. X-rays allow us to assess the condition of your teeth to determine which ones are causing problems.

We can complete two main types of tooth extraction treatment, simple and surgical. During simple tooth extraction treatment, we loosen and remove a tooth that is visible from the gum line, typically in one piece. We will perform a surgical extraction when a tooth is not completely visible from the gum line.

During this treatment, we will make a small incision in the gums and remove the tooth in fragments. In some cases, we may need to cut the bone surrounding the tooth for access. This is all done when the patient is under anesthesia and feels no pain.
