Third Molars

Wisdom teeth, also known as 3rd molars, are the last of our adult teeth to erupt. Many can go a lifetime unbothered, and possibly benefit from these third molars. Others are not as lucky, and will develop subtle to severe symptoms from their wisdom teeth. If you are experiencing difficulty opening and closing your mouth, swelling, pain, or crowding of surrounding teeth, then you may be a candidate for wisdom teeth extraction. Besides the obvious symptoms you may notice on your own, there can be underlying issues such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, and development of cysts and tumors. For these reasons, our Oral Surgeons recommend that they be gently removed. Wisdom teeth removal is one of the most common surgeries and our Oral Surgeons understand that every case is unique and requires special attention.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth 

Wisdom teeth are labeled impacted when there is no room for them to fully erupt. Early prevention leads to a smoother extraction and a quicker recovery time. If left untreated, these teeth can become infected, causing jaw pain, swelling, bone loss, and many more symptoms that will lead to a surgical extraction. 

During your consultation, our Oral Surgeon will most likely recommend a CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scan, which is offered in-house. Many times impacted wisdom teeth may be in the proximity of a facial nerve or the sinus, which a panoramic x-ray will not reveal. We will also discuss our recommendations, anesthesia options, and aftercare instructions.
