Wisdom Teeth Extraction

If you are experiencing discomfort, an infection, or if an exam reveals that your third molars are detrimental to your oral health, wisdom teeth extraction may be necessary.

Why Is Wisdom Teeth Extraction Necessary?

Wisdom teeth extraction is a procedure that may improve your oral health, daily comfort, and may protect the alignment of the rest of your teeth. The reason you need them removed is not a one-size-fits-all explanation. Your particular situation may differ from that of a friend or relative, even if you each have been recommended for wisdom tooth extraction.

What Happens During The Extraction?

Your dentist will apply a local anesthetic to the tooth, or teeth, and the surrounding area. Because the extraction may require the removal of a portion of your jawbone, the dentist may sedate you. We will determine the appropriate sedation to keep you comfortable during and after your procedure.
