What Our Patients Are Saying

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

The last teeth to erupt, typically by our teenage years, wisdom teeth rarely have enough room to grow in properly. Due to this and the upward curvature of the jawbone, they often grow sideways—pushing against healthy teeth—and sometimes failing to erupt fully through the gums. This causes swelling, infection, pain, misalignment, and sometimes cysts and tumors. Ultimately, these late-erupting teeth can cause a great deal of difficulty and yet you don’t need them to eat or speak normally. Considering all of this, we recommend seeing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for diagnosis and possible extraction before allowing these issues to arise.

Pain-Free, Anxiety-Free Procedure

As oral surgeons, we’re certified to manage your anxiety and discomfort with advanced anesthesia, including IV sedation. That means a quicker, less traumatic procedure and a quicker recovery. Under sedation, you’ll have no awareness of the procedure, nor will you remember it after. You’ll essentially sleep through it! We’ll also numb the treatment area to keep you from experiencing any pain after awakening. Your wisdom teeth may be fully intact when we pull them from your jawbone. If they’re deeply impacted, we may need to open your gums and remove them in sections, along with small amounts of the surrounding bone. This is why an oral surgeon is the superior choice for wisdom teeth extractions!

A Smooth Recovery

After your wisdom tooth extraction procedure, you should complete your initial recovery within a few days to a week. The first two days are the most difficult, but you should steadily improve after that until you’re back to normal. During healing, a protective clot will form over the empty tooth sockets. If this doesn’t form, or if it becomes dislodged, you can experience a condition known as dry socket. We’ll give you thorough instructions on how to prevent this painful complication. Be sure to follow them and all of our guidelines for a smooth recovery!

We’re not only wisdom tooth removal specialists, we know best how to keep you comfortable throughout the entire process.

All oral and maxillofacial surgeons must complete a minimum of four years of advanced training in a hospital-based surgical residency after dental school. After accomplishing that, our doctors became board-certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) by passing rigorous examinations and a peer evaluation process. In addition, we’re on staff at Medical City Lewisville and Texas Health Surgery Center Denton. You won’t find a more qualified practice for wisdom teeth extractions than Texas Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants.
