Wisdom Teeth Extraction
At Burbank City Dental, we offer the leading wisdom teeth extraction procedure. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars at the back of the mouth. Candidates for this procedure may experience tenderness, pain, bad breath, jaw pain and various other symptoms. As they grow in, they may disrupt the surrounding teeth and cause a variety of dental issues. We urge patients to come visit our dental professionals for an early evaluation of any symptom. If left untreated patients could suffer from:
What to Expect
Patients will meet with one of our dentists to evaluate their oral health. During the appointment, the dentist will perform an oral examination and any necessary x-rays of the mouth to identify the issue. Our dentist will create a treatment plan with recommended treatments and procedures that will improve oral health. If wisdom tooth extraction is needed, patients will meet with Dr. Cynthia Au Yeung to discuss all procedural and recovery details. Our experienced oral surgeon, Dr. Cynthia Au Yeung, is highly skilled in wisdom tooth removal.
Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure
Patients will be placed under sedation for this procedure to ensure a comfortable and painless experience for the patient. Wisdom teeth will be easily and safely removed under the care of Dr. Cynthia Au Yeung.
