When our permanent teeth grow in, we may think we have reached dental maturity. There remain, however, four teeth beneath the gums, which tend to grown in somewhere between the ages of 17 and mid-twenties. These third molars have long been known as “wisdom teeth,” and are regularly removed by experienced oral surgeons.

There are several reasons to remove wisdom teeth. One of the primary problems with the growth of third molars is that there is often little, if any, room left in the arch for these teeth to emerge fully from the gums. When there is no room, there is the potential for sideways growth of a wisdom tooth or impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth are susceptible to infection, which may lead to pain and swelling.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The extraction of wisdom teeth is a common procedure, performed under local anesthetic and, often, sedation. Impacted wisdom teeth are more complex, and require careful planning. At the Center for Implant Dentistry in Fremont, we use state-of-the-art technology in the planning of oral surgery procedure. This technology provides us with the most accurate view of the area beneath the gums. We are not only able to locate impacted wisdom teeth, but also their roots. The importance of root location is the determination of how best to protect the nerve from damage during the extraction process.

There are inherent risks in the removal of wisdom teeth. These include:

  • Discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Temporary numbness in the lip or cheek
These risks are a part of most oral surgery procedures, and are miniscule in comparison to the risks of leaving impacted, partially erupted, or even fully erupted wisdom teeth in place. These teeth tend to be more at risk of decay and damage such as fractures. Wisdom teeth can also push surrounding teeth out of proper position, causing misalignment that affects the smile, as well as overall oral health.
Our team uses precision techniques and gentleness when extracting wisdom teeth. We focus on safety and patient comfort throughout the process and provide excellent follow up care to minimize the risk of dry socket or discomfort.
