Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the four terminal molars. Wisdom teeth grow in the mouth when a person is between 18 and 22 years. You do not need to have your wisdom teeth removed if they grow vertically and are well aligned. However, if the teeth grow horizontally or diagonally, they may cause you problems, including crowding and damaging the neighboring teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth may lead to pain, infection, and cyst formation. We provide safe surgical wisdom teeth removal services. Our dentists will put you under anesthesia at times combined with sedation to ensure you are comfortable during the surgery.

Wisdom teeth are a set of molars that grow at the age of between 18 and 22 years. The growth mainly occurs naturally with little to no issues. However, in some cases, there could be complications. For example, the teeth could become crooked while fitting into the available space. There could also be disruption of the gum tissues. Such occurrences lead to crowding or impacted teeth, leading to wisdom tooth removal.

Identifying potential problems sooner is critical in managing adjacent teeth, jawbones, and nerves to allow the proper emergence of wisdom teeth. We can use imaging technology to predict future problems, enabling us to adapt corrective measures beforehand. We also encourage patients to come for regular checkups for monitoring purposes. Some of the signs we look for include inflammation around a tooth, discomfort on the adjacent teeth, or irritation arising from the in-grown tooth.

Leaving a wisdom tooth that grows diagonally or horizontally intact can lead to several complications such as cyst formation, intense pain, or infections. We can remove it surgically, and you will still retain healthy gums, teeth, and jaws. Call us if the tooth is not visible or when you are having trouble chewing with it. Typically, extraction is straightforward, but sometimes it requires an incision. We guarantee comfort through sedation and monitor you closely during recovery. You may need someone to drive you home afterward.

The recovery period differs with each person, but at Denwest Clinic, we will give you appropriate instructions to speed up the process. You may experience swelling around the area and slight pain. An ice pack and some painkillers can help. Avoid chewing with the extraction area, spitting, rinsing, drinking alcohol or hot fluids, or using mouthwash. Such actions can irritate the site and interfere with the healing process. You are likely to regain normalcy within a week or two of the surgery. We are here for a consultation if you need any clarifications.
