Why Choose Wisdom Tooth Extraction - Freedom, CA
Dr. Andres F. Herrera offers wisdom tooth surgery
and may recommend teeth extractions as part of your treatment plan. Many adult patients who still have their wisdom teeth wonder why they may need a wisdom tooth extraction or have other teeth removed. Dr. Herrera often recommends this procedure when the teeth are impacted, or if there are any signs of infection in the back of the mouth.
Reasons to Undergo a Wisdom Tooth Extraction Procedure
In addition to avoiding the effects of impacted teeth, you may need to undergo a wisdom tooth extraction procedure
for the following reasons:
• Inflammation of the gums
• Difficulty keeping the teeth clean, even with regular brushing and flossing
• Development of lesions, cysts, or tumors that are affecting jaw function and appearance
• Age and risks of complications associated with the aging process
• Gum disease
• Crowding of nearby teeth
• Signs of an oral infection or severe inflammation of the mouth
• Peace of mind about your oral health
Dr. Herrera does not recommend waiting until your wisdom teeth start to bother you or cause oral health problems to undergo a wisdom tooth extraction procedure. Many people who do have problems with their wisdom teeth experience minimal or no symptoms at all. The longer the wisdom teeth remain in your mouth, the higher the risk of developing disease or oral health problems such as bacterial infections.
Dr. Herrera can walk you through the procedure process during your consultation. After the tooth has been removed, he may sew dissolvable stitches in the area and place a gauze pad over the area to stop the bleeding.

I was referred to Dr. Herrera to have my wisdom teeth pulled. I was very affraid of the procedure. Dr. Herrera was very professional and at the same time very knowledgeable. I was sedated for my procedure and I did not feel or remember anything! when I woke up it was all done. The recovery was much better than anticipated and the amount of pain I felt was well controlled with the prescriptions gievn to me. Thank you Dr. Herrera for a great job.

“In 2013, I was referred to Dr. Andres Herrera by my dentist as I had severely impacted lower left wisdom tooth…He was very focused, professional and tact and he knew what he was doing. He completed the entire procedure in less than 5 minutes than the estimated time of about 45 minutes that I was given by my referring dentist…Drove 30 minutes back home. Took pills, and a week later I was back to normal eating.”
