Thank you for visiting Pearla Dental, where we provide patients with Worcester extractions
and wisdom teeth extractions in a comfortable environment. Extractions are usually needed in the case of a severe cavity or tooth decay, or if wisdom teeth are putting pressure on other teeth or have become impacted. Wisdom teeth often grow in crooked, causing problems this way as well.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow into an adult’s mouth and usually erupt by the age of 23. Some wisdom teeth can become impacted, meaning they do not erupt all the way and need to be extracted. Pain can include swelling, redness, throbbing and swelling. Impacted wisdom teeth can be very uncomfortable. Our Worcester extractions
usually include some type of wisdom tooth removal aside from teeth that have been damaged due to cavity. If a tooth becomes decayed and the infected pulp is not handled, it can cause an abscess and infection, which can be dangerous. Most toothaches are caused by dental problems like cavities or cracked/fractured teeth. An exposed tooth root can also cause severe pain.
Signs that a wisdom tooth has become impacted are facial swelling, infection and pain. The gum may also swell up. The teeth tend to erupt too close to the existing teeth, which causes crowding, and can push the other teeth out of alignment. Most people need to have Worcester extractions
to avoid problems with the teeth further into the future. Severe discomfort and inflammation can be a sign that teeth should be extracted or are growing in crooked or impacted. However, some extractions can be avoided by coming in early enough for us to perform a root canal procedure over the tooth. The root canal cleans and seals the tooth of damaged pulp and helps us save the tooth rather than pull it.
