The Wisdom Teeth Dilemma

Wisdom teeth are your last set of teeth to grow in, known as your third molars wisdom teeth are notorious for their reputation of removal adventures and complications. However, the truth is, that many people have their wisdom teeth grow in without any problems and most people have them removed without complication.

Of course, there are instances when wisdom teeth can cause issues, such as when the teeth are compacted or affect the other teeth in the mouth. If you are unsure whether you need a wisdom tooth removal surgery or not, we would love to discuss the condition and your options any time! 

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery for wisdom teeth removal is so common it is almost a rite of passage for teens. And the path to treatment is very simple.

  1. First, the doctor will meet with you to determine what exactly is needed for your treatment. 
  2. Then an appointment will be set up to come in for extraction. 
  3. When you come in you can often choose what the doctor and care team will use to desensitize you for the procedure, including laughing gas, and sedation.
  4. When you wake up from the procedure you will be sent home the same day with instructions on what to do to avoid complications like dry socket or worse.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars located at the back of the mouth. They typically emerge between the ages of 17 to 25.

They got their name from the age range when they usually appear, which is considered the age of wisdom.

No, not everyone develops wisdom teeth. Some individuals may have only two, one, or even none at all.

Wisdom teeth can cause issues such as impaction, crowding, and misalignment. They may also lead to gum inflammation and decay.

Wisdom teeth removal is typically considered when they become impacted, cause pain, or lead to dental problems.

The procedure is performed under anesthesia, so you should not experience any pain during the surgery. Some discomfort and swelling may occur afterward, but it can be managed with proper care and pain relief.

The recovery period varies for each individual, but it typically takes a few days to a week. It’s essential to follow post-operative instructions for a smoother healing process.

For the first few days, it’s best to stick to soft foods and avoid hot, spicy, or crunchy items. As you heal, you can gradually reintroduce regular foods.

As with any surgery, there are potential risks, but they are relatively low. Your dentist or oral surgeon will discuss these risks with you before the procedure.

Once wisdom teeth are fully removed, they will not grow back. However, in some rare cases, a person may have extra sets of wisdom teeth, and these may need to be removed as well.
