Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the four molars that grow in the back of your mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. For some people, wisdom teeth grow in straight and cause no problems. However, for others, wisdom teeth can grow in crooked or impacted, which means they don’t have enough room to come in properly. This can cause pain, infection, and damage to other teeth.

If you have wisdom teeth that are impacted or causing problems, you may need to have them removed. Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure that is usually done under local anesthesia. In some cases, general anesthesia may be necessary.

The recovery time for wisdom tooth removal is usually about a week. You may experience some pain, swelling, and bleeding after the procedure. Your dentist will give you instructions on how to care for your mouth and manage any pain or discomfort.

Benefits of wisdom tooth removal

  • Pain relief: If your wisdom teeth are causing pain, removing them can provide immediate relief.
  • Prevention of infection: Impacted wisdom teeth can trap food and bacteria, which can lead to infection. Removing the teeth can help prevent this from happening.
  • Prevention of damage to other teeth: Impacted wisdom teeth can put pressure on other teeth, which can cause them to shift or become crooked. Removing the wisdom teeth can help prevent this from happening.
  • Increased access to general dentist: General dentists are more accessible than oral surgeons, and they may be able to provide wisdom tooth removal services at a lower cost.

If you think you may need to have your wisdom teeth removed, please schedule an appointment with your dentist. They can assess your situation and recommend the best course of treatment.
