Wisdom Teeth Removal

sidebar-ask-dr-maratosWisdom teeth are usually the last to erupt in the late teen years or early twenties. Located in the back of the mouth, they can cause complications when they’re unable to break out, resulting in pain, impaction, cysts, crowding, gum disease and tooth decay. As such, it is often advisable to have them removed. The team at DesignDentistry is well-versed in providing comfortable wisdom teeth removals.

When to Remove Wisdom Teeth

It’s important to note that not everyone will require that their wisdom teeth be extracted. Some come in properly positioned and perfectly healthy. We can assess your particular situation and make our recommendations to you. In addition to the concerns listed above, wisdom teeth removal can be a vital part of orthodontic treatment or periodontal therapy.

If removal is necessary, we generally extract all four wisdom teeth at the same time.

FAQ

I’m not in any pain. Do I still need to have my wisdom teeth removed?

Most people don’t have enough room in the jaw to allow for proper wisdom teeth eruption. As a result, they can become impacted, though it may take time for you to notice pain or other issues. If the removal is not needed as determined by an evaluation, we will not proceed.

What aftercare instructions should I follow?

We’ll detail all postoperative advice to you, such as keeping the removal site clean so that infection doesn’t set in and taking over-the-counter pain medications to relieve any discomfort.

Do health funds cover the removal of wisdom teeth?

Health funds often cover the procedure, though it varies from plan to plan. If not, we offer a range of payment plan options.
