Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

The eruption of four wisdom teeth (also called third molars) can pose a threat to your oral health. Wisdom teeth often become impacted and can severely disrupt the alignment of your smile, cause infection, damage the jawbone and lead to long-term oral health issues.

Symptoms of Wisdom Teeth Issues

The following are symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth:

  • Red, tender, bleeding or swollen gums
  • Jaw joint pain or aches
  • Headaches
  • Swelling around the jaw
  • Halitosis (chronic bad breath)
  • A sour taste in your mouth
  • Difficulty opening and closing your mouth
  • Occasional swollen lymph nodes in the neck

More About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Is this usually a preventative procedure?

More than 10 million wisdom teeth are removed in the United States each year and approximately 60 percent of these extractions are elective and not required at the time.

Why shouldn’t I wait on wisdom teeth removal?

We recommend wisdom teeth removal for patients in their late teens to early twenties. If you wait too long for wisdom teeth removal your jawbone and teeth begin to set. As they get harder, the wisdom teeth are even more difficult to remove and the procedure becomes even more complex.

What Should I Expect?

Step 1: Sedation

Our patient's comfort is an unwavering priority, so the ability for us to utilize an oral sedation if the patient chooses, allows us to keep our patient's relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.

Step 2: Procedure

Our highly-skilled team prides themselves on ensuring all of our patient's have a comfortable, safe and efficient experience while they are in our care.

Step 3: Recovery

At the completion of your treatment, you and/or the person accompanying you will be given post op care instructions by one of our experienced team members.  This will ensure you have a seamless transition from your procedure room to your vehicle.

Step 4: Aftercare

You will have been given instructions before you leave the office on how to care for your mouth after your procedure.  Full recovery time depends on many factors such as your health, your age and the extent of the procedure.
