Most people need to have their wisdom teeth (also known as 3rd molars) removed at some point in their life. They can cause pain and crowd healthy teeth, often resulting in decay and infection. Specializing in wisdom tooth removal in Coral Springs, Dr. D and Dr. Petruk often recommend our patients have their wisdom teeth removed during their late teenage years or early 20s.
If wisdom teeth removal is performed before your teeth have reached full maturity, they are smaller which often results in a less complicated surgery and a shorter recovery time.
Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
We can determine if your wisdom teeth will cause problems for your healthy teeth and gums. This assessment is done through a complete oral exam and digital x-ray imaging.
When wisdom teeth come in at an angle, this can affect your bite and even cause decay. Having your wisdom teeth removed is an important step in keeping your smile healthy, straight, and decay-free for years to come.
What Can I Expect When My Wisdom Teeth Are Removed?
Most of our Coral Springs dental patients prefer to be sedated while their wisdom teeth are being removed. Dr. D can discuss your sedation dentistry options with you to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
On the day of your wisdom teeth extraction, you will need to bring someone with you to our Coral Springs dental office who can drive you home after the procedure. The extraction should take about 30 to 60 minutes.
