Wisdom teeth can be challenging to clean and care for and may not always erupt properly. Leaving them in can be associated with risks such as gastrointestinal problems, infection, overcrowding of the mouth, misaligned teeth, and more. Removal of wisdom teeth is recommended when they are unlikely to come in fully or when there is inadequate room in the mouth. By removing your wisdom teeth, you can avoid any potential future issues that may arise.
The best age for a wisdom tooth extraction varies from patient to patient. Generally, we recommend that wisdom teeth be removed when they are causing crowding or other painful issues or when the roots have grown close to the nerve in your jaw.It is also advisable to remove wisdom teeth before age 25 as the extraction process is more straightforward on younger patients, and the recovery time is faster. At Scarsdale Smiles, our experienced dentists will evaluate your needs and let you know what's best for you.
On the day of extraction, the Scarsdale Smiles team will start by taking x-rays to get a better picture of what is happening beneath the surface. A local anesthetic will then be administered to numb the area, and Dr. Cox will gently remove your wisdom tooth or teeth in stages to minimize potential trauma. Your safety and comfort are our top priorities at every step. Afterward, we'll give you instructions for home care, diet, and medications for pain relief as needed.
