Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Carmel Valley, CA

Pain-Free Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Around the late teens or early twenties, everyone gets a gift—their wisdom teeth! These are a third set of molars and the very last teeth to come in, and unfortunately, they often become stuck in the jawbone and gum line because there isn’t enough room for them. This can cause swelling and pain towards the back of the mouth and even push around the nearby teeth. Typically, the best solution is to remove them, which is a procedure Dr. Alhamdi is more than happy to perform. Here, patients can get the specialty care they need without ever needing to visit a specialist!

What Happens During a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

After an exam has determined that a patient’s wisdom teeth need to come out, the procedure will involve the following:

  • Dr. Alhamdi will use local anesthetic to numb the area around a tooth
  • He’ll make a small incision in the gums to expose the tooth
  • After removing any bone still holding onto the tooth, he’ll extract the tooth itself
  • The treatment site will be closed using self-dissolving sutures.

Over the course of a week or less and with the help of prescription pain medication, most patients are back to feeling normal and able to eat whatever they like.
