Do I or my child need wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom teeth are a 3rd set of molars in the back of your mouth. Wisdom teeth can come in any time between 17 and 25 years of age. Wisdom teeth removal is common for a variety of reasons. Your dentist will assess the growth of your wisdom teeth and refer you to an oral surgeon if needed.
Some reasons for wisdom teeth removal are:
- They’re impacted. Wisdom teeth could become trapped in your jawbone or gum and can cause severe pain.
- Size of jaw. Some of us don’t have jaws big enough to accommodate wisdom teeth.
- Growth of teeth. If wisdom teeth come in at a different angle, they could impact the rest of the teeth and cause movement among your other teeth
Preparing for Oral Surgery
Every surgery is different so your doctor will discuss the specific preparations and plan for surgery. Since most surgeries require the use of anesthesia, you will need to arrange transportation from your surgery. The use of anesthesia may also require you to fast. The length of your surgery can vary based on your procedure. Our team will walk through that information with you at your appointment prior to your surgery appointment.
Your doctor will provide you with detailed instructions on follow up home care, along with a date for a post-surgery appointment. Should an emergency arise, please contact our office for instruction 520-290-8787.
