What is Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Wisdom teeth normally don’t begin to show until a person is about 16 to 18 years old. Most people do not have enough space in their mouth for the wisdom teeth to come in, which can cause them to become impacted. When wisdom teeth are impacted, they can cause a lot of pain, discomfort, and even cause infections. Removing the wisdom teeth fully is crucial in preventing problems related to these teeth.
Why is Wisdom Teeth Removal needed?
We normally recommend that wisdom teeth be removed if they are impacted or do not have enough space to come into the mouth. If you are beginning to experience problems with these teeth, like pain and tenderness, it is time to consider having them removed. By removing the wisdom teeth, you can prevent other problems that might occur if you leave them in. No matter how old you currently are, it is never too late to remove these teeth, and save yourself from pain, inflammation and even infection.

What makes you a candidate for Wisdom Teeth Removal?
With the help of an exam and dental x-rays, we can determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted or aren’t able to come through the gums fully. We will then suggest to you if they should come out and what to expect once you have been scheduled for an appointment. Sedation can help to make your appointment easier and we can discuss your options during the consultation appointment. Most people who have impacted wisdom teeth or only partially erupted third molars are good candidates for the procedure.
What happens during Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Sedation is administered as per your request. We then create a small incision through the gums. The wisdom teeth will then be removed from underneath the gums and sutures used to close the tissue. If the wisdom teeth are already through the gums, an incision may not be necessary. You will be sent home with important aftercare instructions. If you experience any post-op complications, it is important to call our office and come in.
