Every year, countless individuals must get their wisdom teeth — their third set of molars — removed. In fact, this procedure has become something of a rite of passage for many young adults. It is often necessary because most people’s mouths are simply too small to accommodate their wisdom teeth. If the teeth are left in place, they may lead to a number of complications. We can prevent such issues with gentle and precise wisdom teeth extractions.
Wisdom teeth are often fully or partially impacted (stuck beneath the gum line), so we may have to create an incision in the gums in order to remove them. Then, we gently extract the teeth while disturbing the surrounding tissue as little as possible. We use anesthesia and sedation to make sure our patients feel little to nothing during the procedure. After your wisdom teeth extractions, it is likely you will be back to functioning at 100 percent within a week or so.
