Why Choose Brush Dental for Wisdom Tooth Extractions?

What are Wisdom Teeth?

In the first paragraph, we touched on the fact that wisdom teeth typically make an appearance between the ages of 16 and 25. That’s why they are called “wisdom” teeth! While some patients have all four, others only have one or two. There are also some cases where the third set of molars never develops at all. This is often the result of genetics. So, if your parents didn’t have wisdom teeth, you might not either.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed?

Since our ancestors didn’t have six-month dental checkups and fluoridated toothpaste, tooth loss was extremely common. Fortunately, the field of dentistry looks drastically different today. All that to say, it’s very unlikely that your mouth will be large enough to accommodate them. In some cases, they can become stuck, painful, and even put you at risk for oral infections. We’ve found that removing them helps you avoid problems before they have a chance to cause serious issues.

What to Expect from the Wisdom Teeth Procedure

When you arrive for your appointment, one of our friendly team members will take you back to the treatment room and help you settle into the treatment chair. Then, your dentist will come in, answer any questions you have, and thoroughly numb the area of your mouth that they’ll be working on. Once you’re completely comfortable, they will begin the procedure.

If your wisdom tooth is trapped below the gumline, then your dentist will make a small incision in your gums to assess it. Then, they will carefully remove it. If your wisdom tooth has broken through the gumline, however, then they will complete a “simple extraction,” which involves gently rocking the tooth loose.

Recovering from Wisdom Teeth Extraction

During your appointment, you won’t feel any discomfort. Once the numbing agent wears off, however, you can expect to feel some soreness. To ensure the recovery period is as smooth as possible, we will provide you with some aftercare instructions, including:
