Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom Teeth Removal for Patients in Randolph, NJ, and Surrounding Areas
Wisdom teeth are third molars that grow in during a person’s teenage years. When wisdom teeth erupt, they might lack adequate space to grow and instead come in at an angle or remain trapped in the jawbone (also referred to as “impacted”), shifting a person’s teeth and causing dental pain. Our office performs wisdom teeth removal in Randolph, New Jersey, and the surrounding areas to preserve your dental health.
Should I Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Dentists usually recommend removing wisdom teeth before they cause further problems. Impacted wisdom teeth can damage the surrounding teeth, and they’re also difficult to clean, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our dentist for a tooth extraction evaluation:
- Jaw swelling or pain
- Inflamed, red gums
- Pain or difficulty opening your mouth
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
These may be signs that your wisdom teeth need to be removed to protect your oral health. If these symptoms are severe or you have a fever, contact us immediately. You might require an emergency wisdom teeth removal.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Process
Wisdom teeth extractions are outpatient oral surgery procedures, which means you’ll be able to go home the same day.
When we remove your wisdom teeth, our dentist will make an incision in the gum, remove any bone, extract the tooth, and stitch the wound closed. The procedure will leave a hole (socket) that is packed with gauze. You’ll be given instructions on what to expect while healing and what to eat after your wisdom teeth extraction.
