Get Wise About Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are commonly referred to as third molars. They are the last teeth to erupt and are commonly recommended to have removed. Our experienced dentists at Dentistry at Rea Village will evaluate for wisdom teeth removal at your routine dental cleaning or during an exam.
Why have them removed?
Usually it is recommended to have your wisdom teeth removed before the age of 20. Having them removed around this time has shown less complications. The roots of wisdom teeth are not fully developed during this time as well. While everyone does not need their wisdom teeth removed it is best to have them evaluated before a complication may occur.
What is the recovery like?
While we may refer out of our office for wisdom teeth removal depending on the severity of the case, it is a very common dental procedure. There are several options for sedation for the comfort of the patient. Your treating dentists can review these options in more detail. The patient may experience some swelling and discomfort for a few days following the procedure. The patient can expect to return to work within a few days. Many teens have the procedure done during school breaks or summer break.
