Extraction of Wisdom teeth or third molars
The third molars, are the permanent teeth of the mouth that erupt around 18 years, therefore they are the last to be born. By the way, some people never get wisdom teeth, because they never form, it is believed that for evolutionary reasons, since the human diet has changed and we do not require them for chewing function. In an ideal scenario the wisdom teeth come out normally, like the other teeth, and do not cause problems, but in most people they do not manage to leave due to lack of space generating short, medium and long term complications, for that reason they are usually removed even before they cause pain, decay to adjacent teeth or infections.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is a surgical procedure that is usually performed on an outpatient basis and with local anesthesia. In most cases the four wisdom teeth located at the posterior ends of the mouth can be removed, both up and down in a single session, this procedure can also be performed with conscious sedation at the patient’s request.
To prevent future problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend removing the wisdom teeth even when they still do not cause any problems.
In the hands of Dr. Enrique Rojas, Periodontist and implant surgeon with more than 20 years of experience and thousands of surgeries performed, the extraction of third molars (teeth), retained teeth, and biopsies, become easy procedures and recovery is much faster, our own patients confirm this.
