Can Wisdom Teeth Be Removed In Pieces?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often require removal due to a lack of space in the mouth. When wisdom teeth do not have enough room to properly erupt in, they can cause people dental discomfort, swelling, and other serious oral health complications. While for some people, the entire wisdom tooth can be removed in one-piece, other people need to have their wisdom teeth removed in Plymouth, MA in pieces. Interested in learning more about why wisdom teeth may need to be removed in pieces? Here is more information on why wisdom teeth need to be removed in pieces.  

Why Do Wisdom Tooth Removals In Plymouth, MA Sometimes Have To Be Done In Pieces?

The process of removing wisdom teeth in pieces, or in sections, is often necessary when the wisdom tooth is firmly anchored within the jawbone or when it has not grown in the proper direction. In such circumstances, attempting to remove the wisdom tooth as a whole can cause excessive discomfort and potentially harm the patients surrounding oral structures. By sectioning the wisdom tooth, the wisdom tooth can be removed in pieces, minimizing the risk of trauma to the patients surrounding bones and nerves. Removing wisdom teeth in sections ensures that patients have a safer and more controlled wisdom tooth removal experience that does not have as many risks of having complications.

How Can My Wisdom Teeth Be Comfortably Removed In Sections?
