An inflamed periodontal pocket is extremely painful.
Inflammation like this is often caused by a periodontal pocket that has formed on the wisdom tooth. This pocket makes it difficult for you to clean the area and serves as an ideal breeding ground for germs.
However, most people under the age of 30 sometimes “only” need to have their wisdom teeth extracted due to a lack of space in their jaws.
Getting an early diagnosis instead of having to endure pain
Our experienced oral surgeon is able examine the condition of wisdom teeth and the structures surrounding them (jaw, adjacent teeth) thanks to our modern imaging technology (DVT, OPG).
After all, it is possible to prevent possible cases of inflammation and even abscesses by extracting wisdom teeth as a precautionary measure.
Have treatment as an outpatient – and recover quickly from the comfort of your own home
We use a magnifying glass to give us a perfect view of the area to be operated on and extract the wisdom tooth in a way that protects the patient’s other teeth as much as possible. The oral surgeon at Dr. Astrid Baumstieger and Colleagues’ practice takes extreme care when operating on the maxillary sinus and the mandibular nerve. Patients who are particularly anxious may be given laughing gas or put under general anaesthetic.
Your cheek may swell or you may experience pain in the area which has been operated on following your operation. However, pain medication and an ice pack will help to combat this. Symptoms will normally subside after three to five days.
