Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth extractions performed by your North Hollywood dentist
Oral surgery is an area of dentistry for which many people find themselves referred to an outside provider. Dr. Elzayat, holding his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from USC, provides a wide range of services right in our North Hollywood practice. Committed to providing individualized, comprehensive dental services to our patients, our team can consult with patients regarding tooth extractions, including wisdom tooth extractions, and perform the procedure under the same roof you visit for routine dental treatments.
The journey of wisdom teeth
Most people begin to experience the growth of wisdom teeth by the time they are in their mid-teens. The growth process may be so gradual that it does not become apparent for quite some time. Visiting your Los Angeles dentist regularly is one way to ensure that wisdom teeth do not pose problems to the jaw or to other teeth. We are happy to consult with parents of teens to determine when it may be most appropriate to remove wisdom teeth.
The importance of wisdom teeth removal with your North Hollywood dentist is to avoid complications. The jaw typically does not have enough available space for these third molars to grow in normally. Allowing wisdom teeth to continue growing may result in crowding. As existing teeth are pushed aside by emerging wisdom teeth, misalignment occurs, jaw pain may develop, and gums may become inflamed and infected.
The other complication that your dentist wants to avoid is impaction. Wisdom teeth, if there is no room in the jaw for growth, can be “stuck” beneath the gums. Trapped here, teeth may attempt to emerge from the gums. Some impacted wisdom teeth can develop tumors or cysts, posing further complications.
Having wisdom teeth extracted by your North Hollywood dentist benefits your oral health and the beauty of your smile. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic, and it typically takes less than an hour to complete. Within a single visit, these problematic teeth are gone and your beautiful smile is preserved.
Dr. Elzayat may begin to monitor for signs of growth in early adolescence. Many young men and women find that the time for extraction comes between the age of 15 and 19, although some people do not require extraction until in their twenties. If you’re bringing your child to Dr. Elzayat for dental care, he is happy to help you monitor wisdom teeth, and plan for their extraction when needed.
