Wisdom tooth removal in Los Algodones, Mexico

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove the last teeth from the back of the mouth. It is a very common procedure and is performed in a large number of adults since these molars tend to develop on an angle and push the other teeth. These teeth are inherited from our ancestors and currently have no special function. 

Our specialists in our dental office will examine you to determine if your wisdom teeth have enough room to come out or if they should be removed to avoid future complications.

Why is it recommended to extract impacted wisdom teeth?

The problem with wisdom teeth is that they grow in the furthest back of the oral cavity, so it is common that these teeth don’t have enough space to grow, they can displace the third molars and rest of the teeth, while also affecting the occlusion and the appearance of your denture. These cases are called impacted wisdom tooth and can be symptomatic or asymptomatic.

In another case, wisdom teeth can fully erupt, but being so far into the mouth, it’s very hard to brush them properly, so the plaque, tartar, and bacteria build up, creating a rich environment for cavities in all surrounding teeth. No matter how good you brush your teeth, these are hard to clean.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause discomfort, pain, and complications in oral health. It can also cause damage to the bone, gum infections and gum disease, and swelling.

Extraction of wisdom teeth

For these reasons, many patients decide to remove them with a tooth extraction surgery even before they begin to emerge or before they cause any discomfort.

Before the wisdom teeth removal surgery one of our dentists and oral surgeons will give you some recommendations to make your experience and the procedure much more pleasant:

  • As you will need to cross the border to visit our clinic, the best will be to come with a family member or friend who can drive you home. Another good option will be to stay in town one night. If this option interests you, discuss it with our team and we will make sure to find you the best accommodation in Baja California.

  • Your dentist will order blood tests before the surgery to check if there may be any complications during the procedure. In case you take any medication, you should ask if it will be necessary to interrupt it before the tooth removal.

  • It is recommended not to eat before the wisdom teeth removal treatment or to have a very light breakfast since you will be under local or general anesthesia.
