If you have questions about wisdom teeth, our team can help! Whether you have swelling, pain or want to plan ahead, our team can give you insight on what to expect as your wisdom teeth begin to grow. Wisdom teeth are some of the most commonly extracted teeth. This is typically because there is not enough space for them to erupt successfully without disrupting the rest of your teeth. If the teeth become impacted or the wisdom teeth cannot fully erupt, this can lead to painful problems. If we see that these problems can occur, we like to avoid them by simply removing the wisdom teeth! By removing your wisdom teeth, you may be able to prevent other teeth from shifting or overcrowding.
Identifying Your Need
Some people may require only one wisdom tooth to be removed, some may need all four removed, and others may not need to have them removed at all. The best place to start in figuring out the best plan for your wisdom teeth is scheduling a consultation. Our team will examine your smile, take x-rays if needed and give you a proper diagnosis according to the position of your wisdom teeth and how much space you have for them to grow. Each patient’s mouth is unique, and how many teeth you may need removed is decided on an individual basis during your thorough consultation.
The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process
If you need to have wisdom teeth extracted, the procedure is very common and completely painless thanks to dental sedation. A wisdom tooth extraction is typically performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation or general sedation administered by a specially trained dentist. With the help of sedation, your visit will be over before you know it. It is important that you follow all the instructions given to you by your dentist and take any and all medication prescribed to you to ensure proper healing.
