Wisdom Teeth Extraction In Allentown

Wisdom tooth removal is very common, low risk and relatively pain-free process.

Symptoms To Watch Out For

Wisdom teeth are the 3rd and final set of permanent adult teeth to come in. They appear far back in the mouth on the top and bottom behind the second set of molars. Wisdom teeth usually erupt sometime between your late teens and mid-twenties but there are exceptions. Some people get theirs sooner or later and yet others don't have wisdom teeth at all. Sometimes wisdom teeth come in without causing any immediate problems but there are many reasons why these teeth should come out.

When should wisdom teeth be removed?

  • They may be coming in crooked or become stuck against the neighbouring tooth.
  • There might not be enough room and crowding can be painful and cause complications.
  • In the wrong position, wisdom teeth can trap food or be impossible to clean, leading to decay.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth become infected much more easily.

The Wisdom Tooth Removal Process

Wisdom teeth may be easily extracted by your dentist or require a common surgical procedure performed by an oral surgeon. After an examination, the dentist will have more information for you about the type of extraction you'll need. You may have all 4 teeth removed at once or you may have them removed gradually at more than one appointment. You will have X-rays taken and carefully examined to see how your wisdom teeth are coming in and what your root structure looks like. This information will tell us if your wisdom teeth need to come out, if they can be simply extracted, or if you require surgery. We don’t want any surprises! We use minimally invasive techniques to remove teeth as gently as possible. We want you to feel comfortable and have a speedy recovery.
