Talks about Wisdom Teeth Removal

Surgical Expertise Matters

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that emerge, usually during your late teens to early 20s. Notorious for not erupting when and as they should, wisdom teeth frequently become impacted. Even if you can’t see your wisdom teeth through your gums, that doesn’t mean they’re not doing harm below the surface. Wisdom teeth can sometimes grow at an angle and harm neighboring molars or cause structural damage to the jaw. This area may also develop a cyst or infection that is harmful to your bone, gum tissue, and existing teeth. It’s important to watch for the signs of impacted wisdom teeth and receive an evaluation from an oral and maxillofacial surgeon if symptoms arise.

Oral surgeons are the experts in wisdom tooth removal. Not only are they trained in performing surgical tooth extractions, they’re also qualified to offer complex facial trauma treatments, jaw surgery, and facial reconstructions. As a result, they are the go-to specialists for wisdom teeth extractions from the simple, to the complex, and frequently perform them weekly, if not daily. If you or your teen is experiencing pain, swelling, or swollen gums around the molars, we encourage you to reserve an evaluation of your wisdom teeth in Teaneck, NJ at North Jersey Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery with our experienced oral surgeon.

We always strive to preserve a natural tooth, however, if untreatable the best way to relieve your toothache and preserve your health may be a tooth extraction.

Our Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

We understand that wisdom teeth extractions, or 3rd molars, can be the first surgery our patients ever receive. As a result, we do everything possible to make you feel at ease from a welcoming and friendly environment to calming anesthesia services. Before we determine if your wisdom teeth need removal, we capture precise, 3D scans of your mouth in order to assess the location and angle of your wisdom teeth. Using this imaging, we precisely plan your treatment so on the day of surgery, treatment will be efficient and minimally invasive.

Before surgery begins, we’ll provide one or a combination of anesthesia services to ensure you’re relaxed and pain-free throughout your stay. You’ll be able to return home the same day and typically only need over-the-counter medication to control any swelling or discomfort during your recovery. We’ll review post-operative instructions with you and encourage you to follow them closely for a shortened recovery time. If you have any questions as you heal, please reach out to our surgical team in Teaneck, NJ for the answers you need. With specialized surgical and medical training, oral surgeons offer worry-free and confident care for any wisdom tooth extraction. Find out if it’s time for yours.
