Wisdom Teeth Removal North Hollywood


Wisdom Teeth Removal, Pacific Implant Group One of the most common types of extraction is wisdom teeth. Pacific Implant Group in North Hollywood uses the latest technology, coupled with gentle precision techniques, for a comfortable treatment and fast recovery.

What are wisdom teeth

By the time a child reaches the teenage years, he or she has a nearly full set of adult teeth and the jaw is mostly developed. However, the final set of molars does not erupt until much later, if at all. The third molars are commonly called wisdom teeth because they appear in a person’s late teens or early twenties. Unfortunately, there isn’t always room for them.

The problem with wisdom teeth

What happens when the space in a person’s mouth is taken up by developed teeth, and another one tries to push its way through the gums? Depending on the degree of crowding, the wisdom tooth may partially emerge or it may develop completely beneath the gum line. This condition is known as impaction, and it can cause a variety of problems, including:
  • Fractures or breakage of adjacent teeth, which may occur above or below the gum line
  • Difficult oral hygiene due to crowding of teeth increasing the risk of tooth decay or gum disease
  • A partially erupted tooth creates an opening where bacteria can enter, often leading to infection
  • Nerve or bone damage caused by crowding of structures below the gum line
  • Toothaches as well as pain, stiffness, or swelling of the jaw
Not every wisdom tooth is problematic. If the tooth has sufficient room to develop without crowding the jaw and other teeth, there is no need to remove it. We perform an examination and use digital x-rays to diagnose impacted teeth, or those that are likely to become impacted. Call Pacific Implant Group at (818) 975-3888 and schedule a consultation.
