Your Guide to a Pain-Free Smile
Wisdom Teeth Extraction on the Costa del Sol with AAURA Dental
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of molars to emerge in your mouth. While the pair can be an asset when properly aligned, they often become problematic, leading to pain, infection, and other dental issues. When this happens, wisdom teeth extraction becomes necessary. At AAURA Dental, we understand the importance of a comfortable experience for our patients during wisdom teeth extraction. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the process and what to expect when you choose AAURA Dental for your wisdom teeth removal.
Why extract wisdom teeth?
Overcrowding: Wisdom teeth can lead to overcrowding in the mouth, causing misalignment of your existing teeth. This results in not being able to chew or eat properly which can cause irritation.
Impaction: Wisdom teeth often don’t have enough room to grow properly, causing them to become impacted. This can lead to jaw pain, heavy headaches and infection.
Gum Infection: Partially erupted wisdom teeth can create pockets where food particles and bacteria can gather, leading to gum infection and swelling.
Tooth Decay: Wisdom teeth are located at the back of the mouth, making it difficult for people to clean them properly. This increases the risk of tooth decay and cavities which in turn can again lead to infection.
The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Process
Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation at AAURA Dental at one of our clinics in Estepona, Marbella or Fuengirola. Our experienced dentists will assess your oral health, take X-rays, and discuss your symptoms and concerns. Based on this evaluation, they will determine if wisdom teeth extraction is necessary and develop a personalised treatment plan.
Pre-Procedure Preparations: Before the extraction, you’ll receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. This may include fasting if you’ll be under anaesthesia and arranging for transportation to and from the clinic if necessary.
Anaesthesia Options: We’ll take you through the anaesthesia options to ensure you have absolute comfort throughout the procedure. Local anaesthesia, sedation, or general anaesthesia may be used, depending on your specific needs and preferences.
Extraction: During the extraction, your dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue if needed, extracting the wisdom tooth or teeth, and cleaning the area thoroughly. Stitches may be required to close the incision, and gauze will be placed to help control the bleeding.
Post-Procedure Care: Post-Procedure Care: After the extraction, you’ll receive instructions on post-operative care. This includes pain management, swelling reduction, and proper oral hygiene. Following these instructions is crucial for a smooth recovery.
