Our dental practice is limited to oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our oral surgeon will always try to save a tooth when possible. However, if a wisdom tooth is causing pain, it is generally recommended that the wisdom tooth is extracted. Since wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the patient’s mouth, they often encounter many different problems. Wisdom teeth are not generally needed for thorough chewing, or to help a person speak clearly, so there is no reason why they should remain in the mouth if they are causing tooth pain. Tooth pain from a dental emergency in Brooklyn NY can be caused either because the wisdom tooth is infected, impacted, or has encountered other dental problems. When a tooth is impacted, it is trapped beneath the gums or jawbone. At our office, we can provide you with either a simple or surgical tooth extraction while we use local anesthesia or IV sedation. Our patients’ safety and comfort is always our number one priority. Sometimes a wisdom tooth will begin to erupt and then will stop part way. In this case, there is a gap left between the tooth and the gum which becomes a perfect breeding ground for infection. It is best if this wisdom tooth is extracted, as well, so that the infection in your mouth will be prevented or cured. Other times, wisdom teeth may erupt and push other correctly-placed permanent teeth out of position. This situation should not be allowed to continue as it can totally disrupt the integrity of your smile and bite.
