Wisdom teeth, the 3rd set of molars that usually grow in between the ages of 17 and 21, can often grow at unusual angles and affect the health of your mouth. Following an examination and radiograph at our Rhode Island surgical center, Dr. English will determine if wisdom teeth removal is recommended.Schedule A Consultation
“Dr. English is very kind and skilled. He performed an implant procedure in my lower jaw. Everything went smoothly and I never felt any pain. I’ve been to his office four times and was never left waiting - always seen as scheduled.”
“I highly recommend Dr. Ray English III. He and his staff made a somewhat complicated procedure as pain free and relaxed as possible. He gave options, described the procedures in detail before performing them, and prepared me for possible complications. I attribute my relatively easy recovery to his expertise and professionalism.”
“Dr. English and his team were highly professional, competent, and very efficient. The facility is clean, modern, and medical equipment is state-of-the-art. The procedure and subsequent follow up visits were pleasant experiences.”
Extraction may be recommended in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
During this first consultation, Dr. English will establish what type of extraction you need - simple, surgical, or removal of impacted teeth - and what type of anesthesia is preferred.
On the day of your procedure, you will receive local anesthesia or IV sedation depending on your preference and need. Dr. English will use a dental elevator to gently loosen the tooth in its socket before removing it with a pair of forceps.
Following your procedure, you will be given detailed instructions for your individual post-operative care. Dr. English is also available for follow up visits in Warwick as needed.
Dr. Ray English III is an expert when it comes to extracting teeth. With years of experience and several sedation options, Dr. English will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during the extraction process.
Tooth extractions are often the first step towards a healthier mouth. Not only can extractions relieve your dental pain, but they can make room for prosthetics like implants, dentures, and bridges, and may even be required for the success of some orthodontic procedures.
