Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Even if you are not experiencing any oral health problems
with a full set of wisdom teeth, your mouth can change over time. You may be at a higher risk of developing problems later in life. Ignoring any pain or tooth decay can make things worse and may require additional tooth extractions, expensive surgeries, and tooth restoration procedures. You may need to have your wisdom teeth removed if you are experiencing extensive pain in the gums, have developed an infection, are experiencing tooth crowding or shifting, or if you are having a hard time keeping your teeth clean.
How Wisdom Teeth Removal is Performed
are performed under local or general anesthesia. Dr. Mohlman can perform most extractions in the office and we can discuss treatment goals and what to expect during your consultation. It’s important to note that the full healing time can take a few months. However, most patients feel fairly comfortable about two weeks after their procedure.
