Keep Your Smile Intact With Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth usually emerge during late adolescence or early adulthood. They can cause various oral health issues, including overcrowding, misalignment, and infection. To prevent these complications, we may recommend wisdom teeth extraction.

We will ensure that your procedure is as gentle and painless as possible, from beginning to end:

  • We use advanced imaging, including a 3-D scanner, to aid in planning and identify any potential complications before your surgery.
  • We’ll thoroughly numb the area using local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. If desired, you’ll have your choice of either inhaled sedation, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation. We are one of the few general dentists in the area to offer IV sedation.
  • To optimize your healing process, we may use platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in your treatment. Derived from your own blood, PRF contains growth factors that promote healing and tissue regeneration. By using PRF, we can speed healing of the extraction sites and minimize discomfort and swelling.

Common Questions About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Why have wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth come in years after your other teeth. This can mean there just isn’t enough room for them in your jaw, which can cause pain and crowd your other teeth. It’s also not uncommon for wisdom teeth to only partially emerge from your jaw. This makes you more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

At what age should you have wisdom teeth removal?

We recommend removing wisdom teeth before the age of 25 if possible. Before then, your tooth roots and bones are more flexible, which means a faster recovery. We use 3-D imaging to reveal problems like impacted wisdom teeth and teeth that are coming in sideways. If we see such complications, it’s best to remove the wisdom teeth ASAP.

What is recovery like after wisdom teeth removal?

You can expect to experience tenderness and swelling for several days. You’ll want to relax and avoid any type of strenuous physical activity. We’ll offer you instructions on diet, dental hygiene, and other elements of recovery. Swishing gently with lukewarm salt water will ease discomfort and help clean your mouth out. Complete recovery takes up to two weeks.
