Have you or your teenager started experiencing discomfort at the back of your mouth? It could be a sign that the wisdom teeth are ready for evaluation. Dr. Austin Burnett specializes in wisdom teeth removal, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.

What is Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 25. Not everyone has problems with their wisdom teeth, but when there is not enough space for them to grow properly, they can cause pain, swelling and other issues. Wisdom teeth removal is a preventative or responsive surgical procedure that helps avoid potential complications and maintain oral health.

What to Expect

We prioritize your comfort and well-being at every step of the wisdom teeth removal process. Here is how it typically unfolds:

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Dr. Burnett will assess the condition of your wisdom teeth, using X-rays to get a detailed view of their positioning.
  • Personalized Sedation Plan: Depending on your needs and the complexity of the extraction, various sedation options will be discussed to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
  • Extraction: During the procedure, our oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to access and remove the wisdom teeth.
  • Recovery: You will spend a short time in our recovery area as the anesthesia wears off. Before you leave, we will provide clear aftercare instructions to aid in your healing process.
  • Post-Operative Support: Our team is here to answer any questions and provide support throughout your recovery.

Advantages of Wisdom Teeth Removal

  • Prevents Misalignment: Removing wisdom teeth can help preserve the alignment of your existing teeth.
  • Reduces Pain and Discomfort: Extraction eliminates the pain associated with impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth.
  • Decreases Risk of Infection: Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to cysts and infections. Removal mitigates these risks.
  • Improves Oral Hygiene: With the wisdom teeth gone, it is easier to clean the back areas of your mouth, contributing to overall oral health.
  • Quick and Efficient: Wisdom teeth removal is a common and straightforward procedure, providing swift relief.
