If you ever have a toothache, you should call us at our office, Steven R. Feigelson, DDS, for an appointment. Our dentist, Dr. Steven Feigelson, will be able to determine the exact cause of your tooth pain, and provide you with Elwood teeth extractions, if necessary.
It is very common for wisdom teeth to cause problems while they are trying to erupt in a person’s mouth. This is because the wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in, and by this time there is often no space left in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to erupt into. When this occurs, the wisdom teeth can cause many different types of problems in the mouth. Sometimes wisdom teeth will attempt to come in sideways. Other times, wisdom teeth will end up coming in in the wrong location and will push other permanent teeth out of place in the process. This can disrupt an otherwise healthy bite, or can even ruin the effects of years of orthodontic care. Sometimes, a wisdom tooth will partially erupt, and will then stop doing so. When this occurs, it leaves a gap between the gums and the tooth, and this creates a great area for materials to gather in and where infection can develop. Wisdom teeth can even become trapped underneath the gums or jawbone; in this case the wisdom teeth are said to be impacted. When wisdom teeth are causing problems, it is usually recommended that they are extracted to get rid of any infection which may be in the mouth, and to alleviate the patient’s pain. When wisdom teeth are extracted, they do not need to be replaced by any type of tooth replacement such as a dental implant. At our dental practice, we can provide you with simple Elwood teeth extractions using local anesthesia.
