Are you considering wisdom tooth extraction because of the jaw aches and tooth pain caused by impacted wisdom teeth? Wisdom teeth removal may seem like an inconvenient and unnecessary procedure now, but having them removed can prevent future health problems. According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 90% of young adults will have at least one impacted (not fully grown in, does not break the gum line) wisdom tooth. This impacted tooth can cause damage to neighboring teeth, leading to infection and possible gum disease. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, our oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, offers a more convenient procedure, so you can properly take care of your oral health without taking time out of your daily life.
Minimally invasive wisdom tooth extraction in NYC entails a smaller incision, requiring fewer stitches, and reducing the chance of infection compared to traditional wisdom tooth removal. If a patient has an impacted wisdom tooth, bone removal may be necessary to extract the tooth. Dr. Stein's minimally invasive technique requires less bone removal than the traditional procedure. Less bone removal results in a less invasive surgery, giving patients a faster recovery time and lesser chance of complications.
After wisdom tooth removal, our NYC oral surgeon will inject medication into the surgical site to reduce the swelling and discomfort usually experienced from traditional wisdom teeth extraction. Although recovery time will vary on a case by case basis, Dr. Stein’s minimally invasive wisdom tooth extractions usually require a recovery time of only two to three days, at most!
The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons stresses the importance of wisdom teeth maintenance. By removing your wisdom teeth today, you’ll have a healthier smile tomorrow!
