What Is Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Unlike the rest of your adult teeth, which fully grow in while you’re still a child, wisdom teeth typically appear between the mid-teenage years and early twenties. These extra molars are meant to help you crush food, but  they can cause more harm than good – and that’s where wisdom teeth removal comes into play. With a quick surgery, you can extract the unwanted teeth and restore your oral health.

At Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery, we have more than 30 years of experience removing the wisdom teeth of residents across Phoenix. We are facial and oral surgery specialists who truly care about our trade and want to see you smile pain-free.

Wisdom Teeth Impaction

Wisdom teeth impaction introduces a series of potential health risks. There are three different types of wisdom teeth impaction scenarios, which are as follows:

  • Full Bony Impaction: This occurs when your wisdom tooth has not grown out at all. Often, wisdom teeth can grow completely sideways, creating an urgent and necessary need for surgery.
  • Partial Bony Impaction: In this scenario, a wisdom tooth grows partially out of the gum.
  • Soft Tissue Impaction: This happens when the crown of your wisdom tooth has started to grow but is still completely covered by the gum.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Extracted?

When your wisdom teeth don’t grow in correctly, they can create a range of issues for your oral and general health.  From infections and cavities to lesions and bone loss, and even damage to other teeth, crooked wisdom teeth should be extracted before they create serious damage.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure

First, we’ll take an x-ray of your teeth to understand where potential problems may lie. Using state-of-the-art Consult-PRO™ patient education software, Dr. Guyette will walk you through the process in detail.

Our wisdom tooth extraction process itself is quick and pain-free. We’ll administer anesthesia as we take out the unwanted teeth, utilizing various methods of extraction depending on how they’re growing. Once your procedure is complete, we’ll explain how you can best take care of yourself after wisdom teeth removal to maximize your recovery process.

The wisdom teeth removal recovery varies for each patient depending on  the method used to extract the teeth and how many were removed. We recommend at least two days of taking it easy, eating soft foods, and regularly icing your face to avoid swelling. 

Importance of Wisdom Teeth Removal

When wisdom teeth grow in straight, there’s often no need to extract them. However, that’s not usually the case. At least one tooth tends to be impacted, and one is enough to cause damage to the rest of your teeth.

If you do suffer from impacted teeth, there’s no comparison to how you’ll feel before and after wisdom teeth removal. The feeling of lifting a serious health risk off your shoulders is truly unique, and one that we hope we can help you with.
