Prevent Crowding & Other Problems With Crofton Wisdom Teeth Removal

If you’ve ever shared a three-bedroom apartment with more than two roommates, you’ll understand how wisdom teeth can be a problem. Since they arrive years after your other permanent teeth, you may lack adequate space for them to erupt properly. Dr. Sood may recommend wisdom teeth removal in Crofton to:

  • Keep your teeth in proper alignment and avoid issues with your bite
  • Make it easier to prevent decay and other problems
  • Stop damage caused by crowding
  • Relieve discomfort

Most people get their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early 20s. If you have family members in that age range, Dr. Sood will pay special attention to their wisdom teeth during their dental exams. While not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, extraction is typically easier if performed at a young age.

Call 301-261-3800 to schedule an exam for you or other family members.

Stay Relaxed With Sedation During Your Wisdom Teeth Extraction

As with any other tooth extraction, Dr. Sood will first numb your mouth with topical anesthesia, a laser, or local anesthesia. You may also want to receive dental sedation, especially if you’re having multiple wisdom teeth removed. Oral sedation offers a deeply relaxed sensation.

It will:

  • Make you less aware of sensations, sights, or sounds that might bother you
  • Keep you calm and relaxed throughout your procedure
  • Enable you to easily communicate with us if needed
  • Wear off gradually to help keep you comfortable

In addition to anesthesia and sedation, our team can make you comfortable with a pillow and blanket while we work. Following your procedure, you’ll want to take it easy for a few days. We’ll provide you with complete instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
