Wisdom Teeth and You

Restoring your bite and healthy smile

When your bite is affected so is the way you are able to bite, chew, and even speak. When wisdom teeth are allowed to grow they may have negative effects on your appearance and dental health: adjacent teeth may move or shift and your bite can change. Sometimes, wisdom teeth that are impacted (under the surface) or that grow sideways or irregularly will put stress and pain on the jawbone, nerves, and adjacent teeth. Removing obstructive wisdom teeth may be the only way to preserve the alignment of your teeth and protect the way you eat and speak.

Our Process

Simple Steps Towards a Better Smile

Nitrous (laughing gas) sedation is commonly used for patients who wish to feel calm and relaxed through the tooth extraction process. If the tooth or teeth are impacted below the gum line an incision in the gum is made to carefully remove the tooth in pieces. After tooth extraction you may be prescribed pain medication to aid in recovery. Sleeping on multiple pillows to elevate the treatment site as well as applying icepacks to the cheeks can help reduce swelling and improve a faster recovery time.

Recovering from Tooth Extraction

Care at Home

For the first few days after a tooth extraction your dentist will recommend that you rest or resume your regular activities with caution. Smoking, or rinsing your mouth vigorously are not advised as they will damage the healing process. Your dentist will encourage that you eating soft foods over difficult-to-eat alternatives, clean your teeth gently while avoiding the extraction site, and take prescribed medications specifically designed to alleviate pain and help in your healing process. You can also prop your head up with pillows at night to control the blood flow from your gums, and apply ice to reduce any swelling. As always, we welcome you to call us immediately if you have any questions about your dental extraction.
