Ridding Your Smile of
If your teen is complaining of significant pain in the back of their mouth, they are likely in need of wisdom teeth removal.

When Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Extracted?
Wisdom teeth removal is often considered a rite of passage for many teenagers and young adults. Whether they are partially erupted or impacted, they can cause a host of problems if left untreated and in place. Unless our team sees no reason to remove these teeth, you can expect us to move forward with extraction treatment, especially if we notice or learn of the following:
- Overcrowding that is causing teeth to shift out of alignment
- Dental decay and gum disease because of inadequate brushing and flossing due to partial eruption
- Swelling throughout the jaw and facial structures
- An infection developing within the gums and jaw
- Increased pain
The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure
We will closely monitor your child’s wisdom teeth so we can recommend treatment before serious problems develop. Once they arrive for their extraction, we will administer local anesthesia to numb the mouth as well as sedation dentistry if necessary. It is worth noting that if the wisdom tooth is too close to a nerve, we may need to refer your child to an outside specialist.
The procedure will include:
- Making a small incision in the gums to expose the tooth
- Removing bone tissue that holds the tooth in place
- Removing the tooth, either in its entirety or in sections
- Closing the surgical site and placing clean gauze over the area to stop any bleeding and encourage a blood clot
