Chicago patient undergoing high risk wisdom tooth surgery

Procedure Details

Young patient suffering from recurrent lower wisdom tooth pain, swelling, bad taste. Due to high risk of nerve injury, general dentist referred patient to a surgical specialist, Dr Nierzwicki. After 3d CT evaluation, wisdom tooth was safely removed with no observed nerve damage.

High risk wisdom tooth removal

Thanks to modern sofisticated technology, we are now able to better visualize the teeth and their surrounding structures with 3D CT computed tomography imaging. It is especially helpful in stratifying the risk of nerve injury during high risk lower third molar extractions. Visualizing the area in 3D allows safer surgery more predictable results, and minimizes the risk of nerve injury.
