Not all wisdom teeth will need to removed, but when they are growing in crooked or only partially, they are highly likely to cause pain, become impacted, infected, and may even cause complications by damaging nearby teeth, nerves, and bone tissue. Dr. Elliott Ostro, is pleased to offer services like wisdom teeth removal and our dental implants in New York NY. In either case, oral surgery is performed, and you can be confident in the high level of skill and experience that our oral surgeon provides.

For wisdom teeth, you should seek out our dental care as soon as you become aware that they are erupting, even if there is no discomfort involved currently. Get evaluated so that our oral surgeon can get out ahead of the problem and possibly help you to avoid unnecessary consequences. Antibiotics may be required prior to the procedure if there is an infection involved. The actual process of removing the teeth may have to be done by taking them out in pieces. But do not worry. You will be sufficiently numb with local anesthesia. Your gum tissue will be cut open, any bone in the way will be removed, and the extraction will commence. Afterward, you should use an ice pack to reduce swelling and take over-the-counter pain relief medication. Full recovery can take a few days. As for our dental implants in New York NY, the key part of them is the surgical placement of the titanium post in your jaw. It replaces your old tooth’s root and is the foundation for the new tooth. Our oral surgeon will make sure you are comfortable and you can rest assured that the procedure will be done properly. This is the advantage of going to a specialist.

So whether you need our dental implants in New York NY or wisdom teeth removal, you know where to turn. Contact our office to arrange an appointment.

Wisdom teeth are the molars in the very back of the mouth and are the last teeth to erupt. Most wisdom teeth erupt in people between age 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth often need to be removed due to the problems they can create in the mouth with crowding or from the teeth becoming impacted. An impacted wisdom tooth can be very painful and need extraction by our oral surgeon Manhattan in order to avoid infection.

If the wisdom tooth becomes impacted and infected, it can be really painful and lead to crowding and damage of teeth close to it. Gums may swell, facial swelling may be an issue and extreme pain. If the wisdom tooth erupts too close to the existing tooth it can also be a problem. At the offices of Elliott Ostro, DMD, our oral surgeon Manhattan removes wisdom teeth as early as possible in order to save the need for future dental bills and issues with teeth. If there is not enough space in the dental arch, the tooth can become impacted. If the tooth is impacted a cyst can grow and permanently damage teeth around it as well as the bone and nerves.

If a wisdom tooth grows out and is not impacted, problems can still happen. The root of a wisdom tooth is extremely long and can make it harder to remove, making future complications a real concern. The best time to have our oral surgeon Manhattan remove wisdom teeth is when the patient is younger, because the root is not completely formed and thus is not as long, making it easier to get the tooth out. Also, the bone surrounding the tooth is softer. After surgery, slight pain may be experienced along with swelling and mild discomfort but the patient should not have any problems other than the normal.

There are many different reasons as to why someone may need oral surgery. Sometimes oral surgery is required in the event of the aftermath of an injury or because decay and disease require more intensive work to resolve an issue. Other times, oral surgery is required in order to help improve the quality of your dental health, whether it be in the present or the future. When it comes to wisdom teeth removal, it can be a bit of everything, but ultimately it is up to your dentist when your wisdom teeth are to be removed. If you are in need of wisdom teeth removal in Manhattan, then Elliott Ostro DMD Gillen can help you get the comprehensive care that really need.

Wisdom teeth are the last of your teeth to develop and emerge from your gums. Wisdom teeth are typically called wisdom teeth because they tend to develop when you are already an adult, typically between the ages of 18 and 21 though some people may get their wisdom teeth earlier or later than those average ages as well. Part of the importance of routine dental exams and checkups is to keep tabs on your overall dental development. With the help of X-rays, dentists can monitor the way in which your teeth are developing and can tell whether there may be any future issues. Many people develop impacted wisdom teeth, which means that they do not come in straight. Mostly, impacted wisdom teeth grow towards the rest of your teeth instead of straight up which can cause a great deal of issues. This can cause dental crowding and immense dental pain as well. Impacted wisdom teeth should likely be removed before they emerge from the gums and before they begin to cause damage. Here with Elliott Ostro DMD, wisdom teeth removal in Manhattan can help to prevent these problems before they occur. Some people have wisdom teeth that are not impacted and may not need to have them removed, but they can be difficult to clean and may be prone to decay. Since wisdom teeth are not entirely necessary, they can be removed to help prevent tooth decay in the future as well.

If you are in need of any wisdom teeth removal in Manhattan, Elliott Ostro DMD can help. If you think that your wisdom teeth are coming in or if you are I the market for a dentist that can perform this procedure for you, then simply call us here at our offices and schedule an appointment with us today.
