Why Wisdom Teeth Matter

The wisdom teeth typically finish developing between the mid-teens to late 20s. Unfortunately, their location at the back of the mouth tends to make them more challenging to come in correctly or keep clean. As a result, third molars are highly susceptible to complications like

  • Crowding and changes to your bite
  • Cysts
  • Gum disease
  • Impaction
  • Partial eruption
  • Pressing into adjacent teeth
  • Swelling and jaw pain
  • Tooth decay

Thanks to advanced techniques and comfortable pain-relief strategies, we can proactively remove your wisdom teeth before they cause additional pain or complications. Severely impacted third molars may require a referral to an oral surgeon.

Planning for a Wisdom Tooth Removal

The number of wisdom teeth that you need to have extracted will impact the length of your appointment. Some people only need one or two removed, while others have more than four that require an extraction.

Plan to take off at least two weeks from work or school for recovery. We’ll provide you with a set of written home-care instructions regarding medication, oral hygiene, diet and pain management.

Unless your sutures are dissolvable, we’ll need to see you a few days after your extraction to remove them. In the meantime, let us know if you develop a fever or swelling.

Stock up on soft foods and ways to stay hydrated as you heal. Pudding, sports drinks, applesauce and milkshakes are just a few examples of what you may want to eat until the extraction sites fully heal.
