Expert Tooth Extraction Service in Sandy Springs, GA
It’s not uncommon to have your wisdom teeth removed. When wisdom teeth try to erupt through the gums, they can cause issues. Impacted wisdom teeth are those that are erupting at an angle rather than straight through the gum line. This may result in discomfort, an irregular eruption of the tooth, or merely partial eruption.
The removal of wisdom teeth is a reasonably frequent treatment. Food particles may become trapped under the epidermis and the tooth may become difficult to clean. This facilitates the growth of the infection known as pericoronitis. The area becomes swollen and painful, but it normally goes away on its own.

The removal of impacted teeth and wisdom teeth is necessary
To prevent issues like infections. A single tooth can be extracted, or all four wisdom teeth can be extracted at once. The locations where the teeth will be pulled could be numbed with a local anesthetic, depending on the doctor’s and/or the patient’s preferences. Others will choose a general anesthetic so they can be asleep throughout the treatment.
To see the tooth, the gum tissue surrounding it is cut open. Holding the tooth firmly, one must wiggle it back and forth until it can be removed out of the gums. A tooth can occasionally become so tightly impacted that it cannot be easily removed out of the gums.
In situations like this, the tooth will first be broken up into fragments and then extracted. Sutures may be required to seal the region, depending on the incision and extraction site. The best option is soluble sutures, which will fall out on their own.
