Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to appear in the mouth, and they can cause a number of issues. Since they emerge last, they often come in when there is no more room left in the jaw, causing them to move at an angle or become stuck (impacted). This doesn’t just cause pain and soreness; it also impacts other teeth and can cause further problems.
Performed under sedation, wisdom teeth removal is normally a straightforward procedure, from which most people recover in just a few days. After removal, we’ll send you home with a list of instructions for follow-up care. Some soreness and swelling is normal, but complications are rare, and we are always just a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns.
Don’t just ignore that pain in your jaw and risk damage from wisdom teeth. Give us a call and ask us to assess your wisdom teeth - it’s the smart thing to do!
