Is your incoming wisdom tooth causing you discomfort and pain? A wisdom tooth removal is a common treatment that many patients undergo in order to avoid painful future oral complications.

At Care Dental Center, we understand that a wisdom tooth extraction can be a stressful event. That is why our caring and skilled dentists and staff work with you to ensure your wisdom tooth removal procedure is quick, effective, and comfortable at every stage.

Why Do I Need to Have a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

For many people, a wisdom tooth removal procedure is vital in order to make sure their oral health stays intact. Many oral health problems can arise from a wisdom tooth emerging through your gum line, including:

  • Sinus complications: A surfacing wisdom tooth can cause disruptive and uncomfortable sinus issues such as excessive pain, pressure, and congestion.
  • Teeth overcrowding: When your teeth overcrowd, many problems can occur including damage to your alignment, crippling pain and even a reversal of your teeth straightening treatment results.
  • Impacted wisdom tooth: An Impacted wisdom tooth occurs when a wisdom tooth is stuck either completely or partially underneath your gum's surface.

Benefits of a Wisdom Tooth Extraction

  • Prevents tooth overcrowding that leads to crooked teeth
  • Gets rid of the risk of an infection caused by a wisdom tooth
  • Alleviates you of disruptive soreness, swelling and pain
  • Prevents sinus issues and preserves your health

What Is Involved in Getting a Wisdom Tooth Removed?

The process will begin with an introductory consultation. During this consultation, we will determine the exact depth and location of your wisdom tooth (or teeth) by taking state-of-the-art x-rays. Our highly experienced and knowledgeable Dr. Omid Barkhordar will next provide an expert examination and discuss all your options in order to make sure your customized procedure is comfortable, and that your recovery is fast.

Your extraction procedure will start with our caring and qualified hygienists safely administering your chosen sedation option. This will ensure your experience is pleasant and relaxing. A small incision will then be skillfully made by our Dr. Barkhordar, so he can remove the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone, and then remove the wisdom tooth itself. Self-dissolving stitches and gauze will then be placed to make sure the removal site is protected, and any bleeding is halted. You will then be able to go home and begin recovery. We'll provide you with expert recovery instructions and any necessary medication prescriptions, so you can recover quickly and comfortably.

What Can You Expect After Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Patients that received sedation anesthesia will require brief recovery time in a recovery room or dentist chair once the procedure has been completed.

To heal successfully, follow your dentist’s instructions to the letter regarding:

  • Avoiding all strenuous activity for the first 24 hours
  • Not smoking for at least 3 days after surgery
  • Staying hydrated and avoiding drinks that are caffeinated, alcoholic, hot or carbonated
  • Not cleaning your mouth – do not brush, rinse, spit or use mouthwash – for an entire day

Can Asymptomatic Wisdom Tooth Extraction Prevent Future Dental Problems?

Though your wisdom teeth may not be causing you problems (asymptomatic), sometimes dental specialists will want to remove them anyway as a preventative measure. At Care Dental Center, we believe preventative extraction is important because:

  • Wisdom teeth may be symptom-free, but they can still harbor disease
  • It’s hard to reach and clean wisdom teeth properly if there’s not enough space for them to erupt
  • Younger adults experiencing serious complications due to extraction are less likely
  • It is more common for older adults to experience surgery difficulties and post-surgery complications

How Much Does Wisdom Tooth Extraction Cost?

The type of extraction and the number of teeth being extracted will factor into the cost of your wisdom tooth extraction. If a wisdom tooth is impacted, the cost increases.

It is common for dental insurance companies to provide some coverage for the extraction of wisdom teeth. Our office provides patients without dental insurance flexible payment options to ensure they can receive necessary extractions.
