What Are Wisdom Tooth Extractions?

The final two molars, which commonly emerge in the early adult years, are known as wisdom teeth. Found in the farthest ends of both arches, wisdom teeth, which are also called third molars, often lack the necessary room to completely emerge. Third molars may be impacted (stuck in the gum tissue or jawbone), poorly aligned, or unable to erupt all the way, causing a number of dental issues. Dr. Yaser Hamdan and Dr. Cigdem Er perform wisdom tooth extractions for Plano, TX patients to enhance oral health and defend against an uneven bite and deterioration. If you or someone in your family have painful or impacted wisdom teeth, set up an appointment at Urgent Family Dentistry to find out about your care solutions.

What Are the Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extractions?

Aside from being uncomfortable, wisdom teeth can lead to complications for your oral and overall health if they don't grow in properly. Extraction of wisdom teeth at Urgent Family Dentistry can bring several advantages for dental health and overall well-being to patients in Plano, TX. Here are the key benefits:

  • Prevents crowding: Ensures proper alignment of existing teeth.
  • Alleviates pain: Relieves discomfort and potential jaw pain.
  • Reduces infections: Minimizes the risk of gum disease and infections.
  • Prevents damage: Avoids potential damage to adjacent teeth.
  • Enhances oral hygiene: Simplifies cleaning of remaining teeth.
  • Addresses bad breath: Prevents food and other materials from being trapped under the gum line, a common cause of breath odors.
  • May prevent the need for future orthodontic treatments: By creating more space for your other teeth, wisdom tooth removal may save you from costly treatments later on.

Are You a Candidate for Wisdom Tooth Extractions?

Usually, wisdom teeth removals are done for young adults between the ages of 17 – 25. Not all patients' molars will definitively require extraction; however, keeping crowded wisdom teeth in the mouth might cause additional potential dental problems in the future. Providers could recommend wisdom teeth removal for adults and teens who have:

  • Periodontal inflammation (pericoronitis), mid-face puffiness, or TMJ aches
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • The development of a growth near the mandible
  • Completely or semi-impacted?third molars within the gums or bone
  • A lack of room to accommodate effective tooth emergence
  • Decay on the wisdom teeth or people who have a hard time making sure the wisdom teeth are plaque-free

What Is the Wisdom Tooth Removal Process?

Urgent Family Dentistry does wisdom tooth extractions while the patient is under local anesthesia; however, this procedure could also be done with additional sedation dentistry services to maximize comfort. Many cases of wisdom teeth removal call for a surgical technique, particularly when the teeth are impacted, have bent roots, or are securely situated in the bone. When Dr. Hamdan or Dr. Er makes an opening in the gum tissues to access the impacted molar, he may break it down into smaller pieces, which offers a more effective extraction. Based on your unique needs, all four of the wisdom teeth could be taken care of in a single session. Stitches may be added to close off the extraction areas and help with the recovery process. Our incredibly skilled dental professionals will supply you with post-op guidelines to follow over the next few days.

Outstanding care and treatment. 2 prior providers wanted to proceed without a clear cut plan. Urgent Dr had a clear plan, timeline and estimate of cost. Root canal and extractions were performed flawlessly and temporary crown put on. I highly recommend this Dr and his staff!

I was having a wisdom tooth that was causing me pain in my cheek so I made the appointment and got in next day. A little nervous going in because I couldn't find anyone to watch my baby and kiddos. I called prior to inform them, they assured me it was okay to bring baby and the kids could be looked after during xrays. They were so nice about it. Dr. Handam came in and didnt make me feel bad my other problems I have with my teeth, said we could work on it later. He offered to pull my wisdom tooth same day and I was shocked! I thought it was going to be some long drawn out process. He calmed my nerves, said it would take just a minute. That's exactly what happened. He's a magician. I kid you not it was so fast I didn't even have to take my 6 month old out of her car seat until after I got home! He is absolutely amazing, a master of his craft, and so kind. The staff and office are a total reflection of him and just as nice. I was in and out within 30 mins! So thankful for him and the relief of pain this tooth was causing!

What Can I Expect After Wisdom Tooth Extractions?

Patients who request additional types of sedation to calm them throughout their procedure will have to bring a dependable friend to take them home safely. During the initial few days following the extraction, it's essential to restrict spitting, drinking through a straw, consuming hot or cold meals and liquids, and to totally stop smoking and using e-cigs. These actions will likely dislodge the scabbing in your extraction site and cause a condition referred to as "dry socket." It is not uncommon to have jaw swelling and pain following wisdom teeth extractions, which can be helped with prescription or drugstore pain relievers and cool compresses held against the jaw area. Our dental professionals will give you tips to enable you to take care of your oral health while you heal and set up a check-in session to monitor your surgical sites as they recover.
