What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of molars to emerge in the back of your mouth. Most people have four wisdom teeth, but some people may have fewer or none at all.

Why are Wisdom Teeth So Often Removed?

Wisdom teeth are often removed because they can cause a variety of dental problems. Many people’s mouths are not large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, which can cause them to become impacted or grow in at an angle. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to pain, infection, swelling, and damage to neighboring teeth. Additionally, wisdom teeth can be difficult to clean, which can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

What is the Extraction Process Like?

The wisdom teeth extraction process is a routine dental procedure that is typically performed under local anesthesia or conscious sedation. During the procedure, our experienced dental team will make a small incision in your gums to access the wisdom teeth. If the teeth are impacted, they may need to be broken into smaller pieces for easier removal. Once the teeth are removed, the incisions will be stitched closed. The entire procedure typically takes less than an hour.

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

Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days after wisdom teeth extraction. However, it may take several weeks for the mouth to fully heal.

Is wisdom teeth removal painful?

Most patients experience some discomfort and swelling after wisdom teeth extraction, but this can typically be managed with pain medication and ice packs.

Will I be awake during the procedure?

Wisdom teeth extraction is typically performed under local anesthesia or conscious sedation, which means that you will be awake but relaxed during the procedure.

What are the risks of wisdom teeth extraction?

Like any surgical procedure, wisdom teeth extraction carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. However, these risks are rare and can be minimized by following your dentist’s post-operative instructions carefully.
