Turn to Us for Help Maintaining a Healthy Mouth

Wisdom teeth (or “third molars” as they are sometimes called) usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 25. If these four teeth come through normally, are functional, and aren’t diseased, then removal usually isn’t necessary. About nine out of 10 people, however, have at least one impacted wisdom tooth, meaning the tooth never fully erupts through the gums.

Impacted wisdom teeth can damage your healthy teeth and gums. They can also develop cavities and disease. To protect your oral health, they need to be removed as soon as possible. Regular checkups and digital X-rays will help us catch wisdom teeth problems before they have the chance to seriously damage your smile.

If you do have wisdom teeth that need removal, you can count on the skilled team at Johnson Dentistry to provide you excellent care. We’ll do all we can to keep you comfortable during your procedure, from numbing your mouth to offering you a warm blanket or soft pillow to help you relax.

Common Questions About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Why have wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. If there is sufficient room for them to emerge in the proper place and position, then they may not need removal. However, if they come in improperly and put your other teeth at risk, they will need to be removed to protect your overall oral health.

At what age should you have wisdom teeth removal?

We recommend removing wisdom teeth before the age of 25 if possible. Before then, your tooth roots and bones are more flexible, which means a faster recovery. We use digital X-rays to reveal problems like impacted wisdom teeth and teeth that are coming in sideways. If we see such complications, it’s best to remove the wisdom teeth ASAP.

Does wisdom teeth removal hurt?

There shouldn’t be any pain during the tooth removal itself since we thoroughly numb your mouth with anesthesia and make sure you’re comfortable before we start. There may be some pressure during your treatment and some soreness and discomfort for several days following the surgery. We might offer pain medication, and we’ll give you instructions to help ensure a pleasant recovery.

What is recovery like after wisdom teeth removal?

While you should feel much better within a day or two, it can take up to two weeks to fully recover. During this time you may experience mild discomfort and swelling. You can speed your recovery by avoiding smoking and alcohol and eating soft foods for the first few days. Rinsing gently with warm salt water also helps lessen gum tenderness and inflammation.
