Wisdom Teeth Removal

At ThoroughDent Smiles, we specialize in the safe and effective removal of wisdom teeth to protect your oral health. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop, often causing issues due to overcrowding, impaction, or infection. Removing these teeth is essential to prevent pain, swelling, and potential damage to adjacent teeth. The removal process involves a thorough examination and X-rays to assess the position of your wisdom teeth. Our skilled team performs the extraction with precision and care, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to promote a smooth recovery and minimize complications. Trust ThoroughDent Smiles for expert wisdom teeth removal, safeguarding your smile and overall health.

  • How do I know if my wisdom teeth need removed?

    You may need your wisdom teeth removed if you experience pain, swelling, or infection in the back of your mouth or if your dentist detects signs of overcrowding, impaction, or potential damage to adjacent teeth during an examination or X-ray. Regular dental check-ups are essential for monitoring the development of your wisdom teeth and determining if removal is necessary to maintain your oral health.

  • How do I relieve wisdom tooth pain?

    To relieve wisdom tooth pain, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen to reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort. Applying a cold compress to the affected area can help numb the pain and reduce swelling. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water several times a day can also provide relief and help prevent infection. Avoiding hard or chewy foods can minimize irritation. If the pain persists or becomes severe, it is important to consult your dentist for a thorough evaluation and appropriate treatment.

  • What is an impacted wisdom tooth?

    An impacted wisdom tooth is a tooth that fails to fully erupt into the mouth due to a lack of space or improper alignment. This condition can cause the tooth to remain partially or completely trapped beneath the gum line. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to pain, swelling, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. They are often identified through dental X-rays and typically require removal to prevent further complications and maintain oral health.
