At River's Edge Dental, we are your trusted partner in dental care. Our experienced team is here to provide you with the highest quality services to ensure your oral health and overall well-being. 

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the final set of teeth to emerge in your mouth. They typically appear between the ages of 17 and 25. While they may have served a purpose for our ancestors, modern lifestyles and jaw sizes often make wisdom teeth problematic.

The Role of Wisdom Teeth Today

Wisdom teeth can cause various issues due to their late arrival and lack of space in the mouth. They can lead to pain, misalignment, and potential infections if left unattended. 

At River's Edge Dental, we understand the impact these issues can have on your oral health and overall comfort.

Signs of Wisdom Teeth Problems

Identifying signs of wisdom teeth problems can help you seek timely intervention. Keep an eye out for the following symptoms:

Jaw Pain and Discomfort: 

Wisdom teeth can cause persistent pain or discomfort in the back of your mouth or jaw area.

Gum Inflammation: 

Swelling, tenderness, or redness around the wisdom teeth can indicate an infection or impaction.

Difficulties in Oral Hygiene: 

Cleaning wisdom teeth can be challenging, leading to increased risks of decay and gum disease.

Shifting or Crowding: 

Wisdom teeth can disrupt the alignment of your existing teeth, causing shifting or crowding.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction: When is it Necessary?

While not all wisdom teeth require extraction, certain circumstances may necessitate the removal of these troublesome molars. Consider the following scenarios:

Impacted Wisdom Teeth: 

When wisdom teeth do not fully emerge or grow at an angle, they can become impacted, leading to pain and potential damage to adjacent teeth.

Orthodontic Considerations: 

If you're undergoing orthodontic treatment, removing wisdom teeth can prevent unwanted shifting or crowding of your newly aligned teeth.

Infections or Cysts: 

Wisdom teeth that are prone to infections or have cysts may require extraction to prevent further complications.

The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Process

At River's Edge Dental, we prioritize your comfort and safety throughout the extraction process. Here's an overview of what you can expect:

Initial Consultation: 

Our skilled dental team will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess the position and condition of your wisdom teeth.

Anesthesia Options: 

We offer various anesthesia methods to ensure your comfort during the procedure, such as local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia.

Extraction Procedure: 

Using advanced techniques and tools, our experienced dentists will carefully remove the wisdom teeth, ensuring minimal discomfort and optimal results.

Recovery and Aftercare: 

We will provide detailed instructions on post-operative care, including pain management, oral hygiene, and dietary recommendations.
