WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

Wisdom teeth are the third (final) set of molars that most people get in their teens or twenties. Often, these third set of molars are misaligned and require wisdom teeth removal.

WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

Wisdom Teeth Removal (Extraction) is a procedure to remove your third molars. But why remove them?

Your Wisdom Teeth are Impacted
Wisdom teeth removal may be necessary when your wisdom teeth come in abnormally. They can be trapped in the jawbone or gums, which can be very painful

Your Wisdom Teeth Come in at the Wrong Angle
Wisdom teeth removal may be necessary when your wisdom teeth come in at the wrong angles, pressing other teeeth out of alignment.

Your Mouth Is Not Big Enough
Wisdom teeth removal may be necessary when your jaw has no room for these extra molars.

Your Wisdom Teeth have Cavities or Gum Diseases
Wisdom teeth removal may be necessary when your wisdom teeth get cavities from not being able to brush or floss them.

Before having your wisdom tooth or teeth removed, a panoramic X-ray is needed to take a picture of all your teeth at the same time. This type of X-ray will help guide the extraction by:

  • It will show where your wisdom teeth are with respects to your other teeth
  • It will show how much room is between your upper teeth and your sinuses
  • It will show how much room is between your lower teeth and the nerve in your jawbone
  • It will show if you have any other problems such as tumors, bone disease, or infections

We recommend antibiotics to be taken after the surgery because: 

  • We want to prevent infections after the procedure
  • If you have a weakened immune system, you are more likely to get an infection
  • Sometimes removing your wisdom teeth can take a considerable amount of time, leaving your mouth susceptible to infections
  • You may have a medical condition that weakens your immune system
