When Your Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Extracted

Illustration of wisdom teeth issuesYour wisdom teeth typically grow in when you’re a teenager or when you’re in your early twenties. They may be unable to erupt in your mouth as they should, which can cause a range of problems. It may negatively affect the rest of your teeth, causing teeth decay. Swelling and pain can occur. Your teeth may be blocked by the other teeth and not have space to erupt. In these cases, we’ll likely recommend that you have your wisdom teeth extracted. We commonly perform this procedure, so you can feel confident that you will be comfortable and your extraction will be efficient. You’ll be advised on aftercare when the removal has been completed.

What to Expect During Your Wisdom Teeth Removal

The first step is to have your wisdom teeth evaluated. We’ll take X-rays to determine the best way to extract them. You’ll be fully numbed, and we’ll only start the extraction once you have agreed that you’re ready to proceed. We’ll place sutures that dissolve at the site so that you won’t have to return to have them removed.
