Do you need your wisdom teeth removed? CenExel CIT will soon be conducting a clinical research study of an investigational pain drug given after a no cost wisdom teeth removal.
What to expect:
Patients that qualify for the study may receive no cost wisdom teeth removal surgery by one of our board-certified Oral Surgeons, in our state-of-the-art facility. Qualified participants also receive study related care, and compensation for time and travel.
- If our oral surgeons recommend you as a suitable candidate for this wisdom teeth study, we’ll discuss any surgical risks with you and if you are happy to participate schedule your surgery.
- You may withdraw from the study at any time.
- Wisdom teeth removal is an outpatient surgery that is performed under local anesthesia with laughing gas (nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia).
- Once the wisdom teeth are removed, the gums will be sutured, and gauze will be placed in the mouth.
- Recovery instructions will be discussed with you after the surgery.
What are Wisdom Teeth?
The average adult has 32 teeth. The average mouth, however, holds only 28 teeth comfortably. The extra four molars at the back of your mouth are referred to as “wisdom teeth.”
Why Should You Consider Having Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth removal is often needed because it’s common for wisdom teeth to not align properly when they begin to push through the surface of the gums. Wisdom teeth can grow in sideways, emerge only partially from the gum, or remain trapped between the gum area and bone.
Impacted wisdom teeth can reposition several times as they try to find a path that will allow them to fully emerge, all of which can cause swelling, stiffness, pain, and illness. Perhaps the biggest problem caused by wisdom teeth is the tumors or cysts that can form when the teeth remain impacted. These tumors or cysts destroy the nearby jawbone and healthy teeth.
Partially emerged wisdom teeth are also troubling, as they enable bacteria to grow in the opening around the teeth. This eventually can lead to infection in the mouth. Wisdom teeth that do emerge can cause other teeth to move, disrupting your orthodontic care or the natural alignment of your teeth.
Early removal of wisdom teeth is recommended so you can prevent these problems and lower the surgical risk that is associated with wisdom teeth removal
