Oral surgery refers to a variety of procedures that address issues in the mouth, jaw, and face. This can include tooth extractions, dental implant placement, corrective jaw surgery, and treatment for TMJ disorders, just to name a few. Oral surgeons are specialists in this field who have undergone extensive education and training beyond that of a general dentist. In fact, oral surgeons are the only dental specialists recognized by the American Dental Association who are surgically trained in a hospital-based residency program for a minimum of 4 years. This means that they are well-equipped to handle complex cases and manage any potential complications that may arise during surgery. Our extensive dental practice is home to two of San Antonio’s most talented surgeons: Dr. Alejandro Martinez and Dr. Sarah McMahan.
Wisdom teeth extractions are one of the most common oral surgeries that we perform here at our practice. First off, what exactly are wisdom teeth? Well, they’re the third set of molars that typically appear in a person’s late teens or early twenties.
Now, you may be wondering why these teeth often need to be extracted. The truth is that many people simply don’t have enough room in their mouths for these extra molars, which can lead to problems such as overcrowding, misalignment, and even infection. In fact, it’s estimated that nearly 85% of people eventually need their wisdom teeth removed. But don’t worry, wisdom teeth extractions are a routine procedure that our team is highly experienced in, and the benefits of having them removed can be significant.
If you find yourself with any of the following symptoms it’s important to contact us as soon as possible. The longer you put off seeking professional treatment, the longer you’re at risk of irreversible damage.
One of the most common signs that wisdom teeth extraction is necessary is pain in the jaw. This pain is often caused by the wisdom teeth pushing against the other teeth in your mouth and can range from mild to severe.
Another common sign that wisdom teeth extraction is necessary is swelling in your mouth. This swelling is often caused by the wisdom teeth pushing against the other teeth in your mouth and can range from mild to severe.
Bad breath can be another sign that wisdom teeth extraction is necessary. This bad breath is often caused by the bacteria that collect around the wisdom teeth and can be difficult to get rid of.
An infection in the mouth can also be a sign that wisdom teeth extraction is necessary. This infection is often caused by the bacteria that collects around the wisdom teeth and can be difficult to get rid of.
