In the unfortunate event a tooth needs to be extracted, you are in good hands. When a tooth is severely damaged, or it is trapped within the jaw bone beneath the gums, a tooth extraction may be required. Generally a local anesthetic is used to numb the area surrounding the tooth. At Green Family Dental we offer oral sedation to minimize anxiety and pain.
At Green Family Dental in El Paso, we can treat problems related to your third molars, more commonly called wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to develop and usually appear in the late teens or early 20s. Wisdom teeth will sometimes lack the proper space in the jaw to erupt fully or even at all. When there is not enough space for a wisdom tooth to erupt, this common condition is called impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth can be extremely painful and if left untreated, can cause damage to neighboring teeth.
