Wisdom Teeth Removal
During his post dental school General Practice Residency, Dr. La Cantera focused on learning the most effective techniques for wisdom tooth removal and has been using them ever since. As a result, we're proud to offer superb dental extraction in San Antonio.
Here at La Cantera Dental Group, our patients have positive wisdom tooth removal experiences! Our dentists use the most effective techniques to ensure comfort and precision during every appointment.
Why Do We Grow Wisdom Teeth?
The third molars are commonly referred to as your wisdom teeth. They’re the last four teeth that generally erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. As the human diet changed to include softer, more cooked food, our jaws have gotten smaller. Some people may still have some or all of their wisdom teeth erupt.
Common Reasons for Wisdom Teeth Removal
Your wisdom teeth don’t have much of a purpose – they can sometimes be more of a burden than of good use! Most patients have their wisdom teeth extracted for the following reasons:
- They’re too difficult to clean
- They cause pain
- They’re impacted
How We Make You Feel Comfortable
Wisdom teeth removal is a surgical procedure, so we offer a few sedation options to make it as comfortable as possible for you. This reduces any feelings of anxiety or agitation you may have while helping with pain relief. Wisdom teeth extractions don’t require you to be completely unconscious, but you’ll be in a twilight state where you can answer any questions.
