Wisdom Tooth Extraction Treatments in Revere Massachusetts

At All Pro Dental, we know that extracting your wisdom teeth can be a scary thought for many of our patients. We find that the best way to prepare our patients for this procedure and minimize their nerves is to carefully explain the procedure from all angles to ensure our patients know the reason and process of extracting their wisdom teeth. We provide wisdom tooth extraction services, which is different from wisdom tooth surgery. Wisdom tooth surgery is necessary when the wisdom teeth are impacted and unable to go through the gum line. A wisdom tooth extraction is non-surgical and similar to other tooth extraction treatments

All Pro Dental Provides Wisdom Tooth Extraction For Specific Cases:

At All Pro Dental we provide wisdom tooth extraction services on a case-by-case basis. Our team can remove wisdom teeth that are not fully or partially impacted. Not everyone has wisdom teeth, some people are born without any of them or are born with not all four teeth. Some people can even have their wisdom teeth grow in and not need them removed. But for many people, wisdom teeth cause issues with crowding that can cause many different issues for oral health. In those cases, wisdom teeth are recommended to be removed. In cases where wisdom teeth are fully or partially impacted, you will need to have them surgically removed. But if they are not impacted they can be removed in the same way other teeth are removed by dentists.

Wisdom tooth extraction is not for impacted wisdom teeth, like in this image. When a wisdom tooth doesn’t have the space to erupt through the gums, it can twist and push into the other teeth causing pain, damage, and infection. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, the solution is usually wisdom tooth removal surgery. We can recommend a dentist that provides wisdom tooth surgery if we notice that there is an issue with impacted teeth. 

Alternatively, some people have wisdom teeth that erupt through the gums, but even though they are not impacted, they cause issues with bite alignment and orthodontics. Many people’s mouths are not designed to hold 32 teeth, and the wisdom teeth can lead to some crowding issues. In these cases, the wisdom teeth can be pulled in a similar way that other teeth are pulled. If this is the case, our team can help remove the wisdom teeth that have already erupted through the gums to help prevent orthodontic issues. 

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Come Out?

We get this question from many patients and it is an important question to ask! Your wisdom teeth, or your third molars, are the last teeth to come in and they typically do so long after the rest of your molars and teeth have come and locked their roots in your gums. Wisdom teeth often need to be extracted because there is simply not enough room for them in your mouth. If left untreated, your wisdom teeth can disrupt your smile, cause permanent damage to the rest of your teeth, and cause you pain.

What is the Process of Extracting Wisdom Teeth?

In a surgical context, the traditional wisdom tooth removal process is done under anesthesia. Patients are usually awake during the surgical process, but are not able to feel anything because of the local anesthesia. The wisdom teeth are removed surgically, and the areas are stitched up. Over the course of the day after the treatment, you will regain feeling in your mouth and jaw, and will likely use pain medication provided by your dentist. Your dentist will provide post-care instructions including how to disinfect the stitches using warm salt water, what you can and can’t eat, and when to schedule a return visit to have your stitches removed. 

In the case of a wisdom tooth extraction that is non-surgical, the process is similar to other tooth extraction. Like with a root canal, dental filling or other treatment, a patient’s mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia. Once the mouth is full numb, the dentist is able to pull the tooth out. There is often no need for stitches as no incision needs to be made. Your dentist will recommend post-care treatment and any follow up treatments or appointments that need to be made. However, the recovery for a non-surgical extraction is usually much quicker and requires less maintenance by the patient.

Our team provides a variety of dental services at our office in Revere. Procedures like tooth extraction, or restorative treatments like root canals, are usually recommended during a regular cleaning or check-up. Regular cleanings and checkups are the best way to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. Any issues can be noted and addressed during these routine treatments. In terms of dental decay, seeing a dentist a few times a year prevents serious decay from spreading unnoticed. At most, bacteria will only have 6 or so months to grow without being checked and resolved. 

A key benefit of setting up regular dental appointments, is that when there is an issue like impacted wisdom teeth, it can be resolved before it becomes a bigger problem. Often teenagers will receive dental x-rays when they are around 16-20 years old, and it will become clear how their wisdom teeth are developing and what, if any, intervention might be recommended.

Frequently Asked Dental Questions About Wisdom Teeth

No, some people are born without wisdom teeth, or with only some of their wisdom teeth. Other patients have their wisdom teeth but do not need them removed because they don’t have an issue with impacting or crowding. Your dentist will recommend wisdom tooth extraction only if it is necessary. 

When there isn’t room for the wisdom tooth to erupt through the gumline it moves at an angle eventually hitting into the adjacent molar. This can cause pressure, pain, and damage to the root of that molar and is referred to as being impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth are usually surgically removed. 

Yes, but it is based on the context of a patient’s unique situation. If the wisdom teeth are impacted below the gum line, they will need to be surgically removed. If the wisdom teeth erupt past the gum line but pose issues to your bite alignment or crowding of your teeth, your dentist might recommend a non-surgical removal option. Here at All Pro Dental we only provide non-surgical treatments. If our patient needs surgery to remove their wisdom teeth we will recommend a dentist that can help with the surgery.  

Commonly the wisdom teeth begin to show up when we are between 16 and 20 years old. Although they can show up earlier or later depending on the patient. Many high school / college students have their wisdom teeth extracted due to the fact that they do not have room in their mouths for their wisdom teeth. 

If your dentist recommends wisdom tooth removal it is likely necessary for you to have your wisdom teeth removed Otherwise the wisdom teeth could impact and lead to infections or lead to severe pain or similar problems for your oral health.
