Wisdom Teeth Removal
The wisdom teeth represent the third and final set of molars. Unfortunately, a lack of jaw space commonly prohibits these back teeth from emerging properly and comfortably. Since they do not add a significant functional benefit, the wisdom teeth are often removed to prevent future disruption of your smile. As part of our general dentistry services, Dr. Jang proudly offers wisdom teeth removal in the comfort of our Moorpark office. While it is considered a minor oral surgery, it is typically a straightforward procedure that can save you from serious oral health problems.
When choosing Paul Jang Dentistry for your wisdom teeth removal, you can expect the highest standard of care. We provide a welcoming atmosphere that is equipped with modern amenities to help you relax. Dr. Jang is also qualified to administer sedation dentistry, ensuring your wisdom teeth removal is as painless as possible. When you leave our office, we will give you specific instructions on how to care for the extraction site and expedite healing. Most patients return to normal activities and eating habits after 3 to 4 days.
Dangers of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are known for causing trouble. When there is not enough jaw space for these back molars to erupt, they tend to grow in sideways or get impacted below the gum line. This causes a host of dental issues, ranging from misalignment and decay to painful jaw cysts, swelling and more. To help patients avoid these oral health threats, it is best to remove the wisdom teeth altogether. Adults of all ages can certainly benefit from wisdom teeth removal, but the procedure is more commonly performed on patients in their late teens or early twenties.
