What Are Wisdom Teeth?
A person's last pair of teeth that commonly emerge in the early adult years are known as wisdom teeth. Located in the back corners of each arch, wisdom teeth (also called third molars) often don't have enough room to grow in, are difficult to keep free of debris, and may need removal to preserve overall dental wellness. They can become impacted (trapped under the gums or jaw), poorly aligned, or unable to form properly, leading to many problems. Our expert team performs wisdom tooth removals for people in Allen, TX to preserve their dental health and prevent jaw pain and decay. When you or your teen have aching or ingrown wisdom teeth, call for an exam at The Dentist of Allen to find out how we can help you.
What Should I Expect During Wisdom Tooth Removal?
The Dentist of Allen performs wisdom tooth extractions with the patient under mild anesthesia, and this might be paired with sedation. Most wisdom teeth require excision, usually when the teeth are impacted, have abnormally shaped roots, or are firmly anchored to the jawbone. Once we make an incision in the gums to reach the impacted molar, we may cut it into smaller pieces for easier removal. Based on your situation, each of the wisdom teeth may be extracted in a single procedure. Sutures might be used to close up the excision areas and aid in recovery.
Patients needing sedation during their session will need to bring someone to get them home safely. In the first few days following the extraction, it's important to avoid spitting, using straws, eating hot or cold foods and drinks, and using tobacco products. Doing these things can result in a painful condition known as a "dry socket." You may have facial puffiness and aching after your extraction, which can be managed with pain relievers and cold packs held to the jaw area. Our team will give you instructions on post-op care to ensure a fast recovery.
