WHAT IS A WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION?

Dentist Westmont

Commonly known as “wisdom teeth,” our third molars are the teeth at the very back of the mouth that erupt around age 17-25. Although this is a natural phenomenon, wisdom teeth can come with trouble, like pain or impaction. Westmont dentists Dr. Sana Ahmed and Dr. Juned Mohammed suggest wisdom tooth removal for prevention and recovery from discomfort or damage. Are you worried about impending wisdom tooth impaction, discomfort, or infection? If so, book wisdom teeth surgery in Westmont, IL, by calling (630) 812-7755 or messaging Evolve Dentistry online.

According to a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, about 10 million wisdom teeth are removed annually from 5 million people in the United States.

HOW IT WORKS

If you need wisdom teeth removal in Westmost, IL, our caring team wants to ensure that your oral surgery goes smoothly:

BEFORE

Our dentists will look at your smile to see if you have impacted wisdom teeth or if it’s visible above the gumline. This helps them understand the course of action.

Of course, we prep the patient by offering dental sedation and anesthesia to ensure that the patient feels comfortable (and virtually nothing).

DURING

If your wisdom tooth is visible, we can typically treat it like simple tooth extraction and easily pluck it from the socket with a dental elevator.

Conversely, impacted wisdom teeth are a little trickier to remove. They require a small incision in the gum line and removal from the jawbone.

AFTER

Wisdom teeth recovery varies from person to person, but patients need a few weeks to recover after the tooth and root are removed. We strongly recommend adequate rest, not overexerting yourself, and consuming a soft or liquid diet as the mouth heals.

WHAT ISSUES CAN WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL SOLVE?

Dr. Ahmed and Dr. Mohammed advise oral surgery if you’re experiencing wisdom teeth symptoms, like discomfort, infection, overcrowding, or impaction. Typically, wisdom teeth pain worsens as time marches on, so consult with Evolve Dentistry as soon as you notice pain or swelling in the back of the mouth.
