Wisdom Teeth Removal

Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to pain, infection, and swelling.

Whether your wisdom teeth are causing problems or you wish to avoid these problems altogether, wisdom tooth removal can be beneficial.

Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dental Care in Joppa, MD, can provide virtually painless wisdom tooth removal.

Comfortable Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, which are also called third molars, are the four teeth that grow at the back of your mouth when you are in your teens or early twenties. They can cause problems if they grow in at an angle or get trapped under the gums, which dentists call "impaction." In these types of cases, our dentists usually recommend tooth extraction to avoid more dental health problems. In some cases, patients elect to have their wisdom teeth removed in the very earliest stages of development in order to prevent these issues completely.

While the idea of tooth extraction is concerning to some patients, Drs. Mohamed Saccoh and Chih Shee take care to ensure wisdom teeth removal is as comfortable as possible.

How Wisdom Teeth Cause Misalignment

When there isn't room for wisdom teeth in your mouth, they can push other teeth out of alignment. Preventive wisdom tooth removal can safeguard the alignment of your teeth.

We work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Day of Procedure

We work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Imaging

Our dentists will review your digital scans to identify your needs and carefully plan your oral surgery.

Patient Comfort

For your comfort, the treatment area will be numbed. If you have chosen sedation, you will receive instructions beforehand and we will monitor your comfort throughout the procedure.

Oral Surgery

If your wisdom teeth have erupted, they will be gently loosened and extracted. Impacted teeth may require the dentist to make an incision in the gums to release the tooth from the bone. In some cases, the dentist may need to separate the tooth into smaller pieces before gently extracting them.

Recovery

If needed, the extraction sites will be sutured closed. To help stop bleeding, you will be asked to bite gently on sterile gauze to help a blood clot form. The dentist will give you instructions on how to care for your mouth over the next few days to avoid infection or dry socket, which happens when a blood clot does not form or dislodges before the extraction site heals.
