Wisdom Tooth Extraction

What are wisdom teeth? Everyone has a set of third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. While a handful of people live with their wisdom teeth and experience no problems, most need to undergo wisdom tooth extraction in their late teens or early twenties.

Wisdom teeth removal can be necessitated for several reasons. In most cases, the wisdom teeth are angled forward and put pressure on the other molars. Other people may have teeth angled backwards or even sideways, which can lead to dental problems in the future. Often, wisdom teeth can cause crowding of the front teeth – lowering the patient’s confidence in their smile. Some patients undergo wisdom tooth extraction to address existing problems like tongue pain, cheek-biting, or toothache, but most have the procedure done before any problems occur.

Wisdom teeth removal is a very common procedure, but how it is performed varies from one person to the next. During a typical session, the patient is given local anesthesia around the teeth that are being removed. Some patients may be sedated consciously so they’re more comfortable and relaxed, yet still awake.

The time it takes to perform a wisdom tooth extraction depends on where and how the teeth are coming in. Teeth that have partially erupted through the gum tend to be easier to remove, while teeth that are growing sideways and under the gum (impacted) require more invasive surgery.

I’ve heard that the days after wisdom tooth extraction can be pretty rough. What should I expect?

Following the procedure, you may experience some pain and swelling, neither of which typically lasts longer than just a few days. The dentist will prescribe pain medications to relieve any lingering pain in the teeth and gums. Our dentists at Better Dental will also provide home care instructions on how to help minimize and manage pain and other after-effects of wisdom teeth removal, as well as schedule a follow-up visit. With a little effort, your experience should be easier than you might think!
