Getting Wise About Your Wisdom Teeth

Tooth Extraction

Your wisdom teeth are the four back molars that develop later than your other permanent teeth. They aren’t often seen until your late teens. If you’re over the age of 25 and your wisdom teeth have not erupted, they may be impacted inside your jawbone. In some cases, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to infection, swelling, pain, and deterioration of your jawbone. Whether they’re detected in a routine imaging study, or you’re seeking dental care from a dentist in Marietta because of pain or swelling, the discovery of impacted wisdom teeth usually results in your dentist recommending surgical removal.

What Can You Expect During a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

A wisdom tooth extraction is usually an outpatient procedure. Before your appointment, your dental care expert will explain any necessary preparations, including what you can eat and drink, instructions for prescription medications, and dental care instructions for after the tooth extraction. Your dentist will administer either local or general anesthesia during the procedure. After the tooth extraction, your mouth will probably be numb for several hours, and you’ll be given medication for any post-operative pain. Call your dentist in Marietta if you experience severe pain, swelling, or excessive bleeding.

Do You Have Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

If you have unexplained swelling, pain, or pressure in your jaw, see an experienced, affordable dentist in Marietta to have your wisdom teeth evaluated. If you have impacted wisdom teeth, your dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon. A qualified, affordable dentist will explain the tooth extraction process so you’ll be prepared for the surgery, be aware of the risk of possible complications, and advised of the at-home dental care required.

Are There Potential Risks from a Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Complications from a wisdom tooth extraction are rare in teens and young adults, but for those over 30, surgery can be more challenging, resulting in the possibility of dry socket, infection, and a weakening of the jawbone. In rare cases, nerve damage can cause a permanently altered sensation or numbness in the lower lip, tongue, and chin.
