Painless extractions with Sedation

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Why do I need to take my wisdom teeth out?

Wisdom teeth also referred to as the “third molars” develop on each side of the jaw. These
teeth are as important as other teeth and can be a voluble asset to the mouth when they are
healthy and properly positioned. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth are more prone to problems
during their eruption that require their removal. Since wisdom teeth are the last to erupt
— usually between the ages of 16 and 21 — there often is little room left in the mouth.
When the jaw isn’t large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they can become impacted
(unable to come in or misaligned). Wisdom teeth may also grow in sideways, emerge only
part way through the gum or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. This may lead to
pain, infection, and gum line and facial swelling. When any of these conditions arise, your
dentist may determine that extraction is necessary.

When do I need to take my wisdom tooth out?

A wisdom tooth extraction is a relatively routine procedure. the procedure is complicated if
wisdom teeth have not yet erupted. When providing treatment, our first priority is your
comfort and safety. In addition, Wisdom tooth extraction can be performed in combination
with Sedation dentistry to help alleviate any discomfort you may experience and make
your procedure as relaxing and comfortable as possible.

How long does it take to recover from wisdom tooth extraction?

Recovery takes approximately five to seven days, with the gum area being fully healed in
approximately three to four weeks. If the jaw is damaged during extraction, full recovery
may take up to six months. After the tooth is removed, we will provide care instructions to ensure proper healing.
Some pain and swelling may occur but will normally subside after a few days. You should
call your dentist if you have prolonged or severe pain, swelling, bleeding or fever.
