Wisdom Tooth Extractions

At Noble Dental, we understand some patients fear the threat of tooth extraction and will even avoid much-needed dental appointments because of the possibility. Our staff understands these emotions very well. Our patient’s safety always comes first, and you can rest assured that your extraction procedure will be handled as professionally as possible by our staff.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, which start coming in between the ages of 17 and 25 in most people. Unfortunately, the arrival of these teeth often brings problems. About 5 million patients each year need to have one or more wisdom teeth extracted.

Some reasons for wisdom tooth extractions:

Our dentist will review your x-rays and the positioning of your wisdom teeth at your regular check-up visits. They may recommend removing some or all of your wisdom teeth to help alleviate any pain, swelling or infection you may currently have, or to avoid future problems. There are other reasons why you may want to have your wisdom teeth extracted. Here are some typical reasons why:

  • Your jaw may not be large enough for the wisdom teeth to emerge from under the gums.
  • The wisdom teeth are coming through the gums only part way or are coming in at an awkward angle, which can lead to infection.
  • The impacted wisdom teeth are damaging the jawbone or other teeth.

At Noble Dental, our dentist will determine the position of your wisdom teeth and determine the type of extraction to be performed.

Wisdom tooth extraction procedure:

If you’re having only one wisdom tooth extracted, you may only need a local anesthetic. However, if you need to have multiple teeth extracted, a general anesthetic or another type of sedation may be administered. If the wisdom tooth is impacted, meaning it’s still under the gum line, then the gum tissue at the extraction site will be opened and the tooth will be gently removed. The dentist may need to apply sutures (stitches) to aid in healing. After the procedure is over, you will rest for a short time before going home. Typically, you’ll need another person to drive you, depending on the type of anesthesia you received.

"Last night had an emergency visit. The best way to describe it is...they treated my mom so well the young lady at the front desk was so friendly, caring, very welcoming. The doctor treated my mom with a professionalism way above par. His manners, his eye for detail, he would show my mom step by step what he was doing. Everything you want from a Dentist. I would highly recommend this Dental office for all your dental needs."
