Wisdom Tooth Extraction In Silver Spring & Germantown, MD

Wisdom teeth appear much later in development than other teeth, sometimes having less room to grow as a result. When they don’t have room in the jaw to grow properly, they can cause swelling and severe pain, resulting in removal for most people. R3 Dental Group offers wisdom tooth extraction for patients living in Silver Spring, Germantown, Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas of Maryland.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are types of molars found in the very back of your mouth. These teeth usually appear in the late teens or early twenties but may become impacted (fail to erupt) due to lack of room in the jaw or angle of entry. The most common type of impacted wisdom tooth is “mesial,” meaning that the tooth is angled forward toward the front of your mouth.
When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it may need to be removed. If it is not removed, you may develop gum tenderness, swelling, or even severe pain. Impacted wisdom teeth that are partially or fully erupted tend to be quite difficult to clean and are susceptible to tooth decay, recurring infections, and even gum disease.

R3dental We will help you determine your best treatment option based on your aesthetic goals and health needs.
R3dental Oral surgery includes treatments that involve teeth removal, teeth implants, and even jaw joint disorders. These are typically performed as restorative dentistry treatments, aiming to preserve the health of the teeth and mouth while keeping a patient’s smile intact.

Am I A Candidate For Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Each patient’s situation is unique. Your dentist will usually take a panoramic X-ray to determine whether your wisdom teeth will need to be removed. If your dentist recommends removal of your wisdom teeth, it is best to have them removed sooner rather than later.
Wisdom teeth are typically removed in the late teens or early twenties because there is a greater chance that the teeth’s roots have not fully formed and the bone surrounding the teeth is less dense. These two factors can make extraction easier, as well as making the recovery time much shorter.

How Does Wisdom Tooth Extraction Work?

To remove a wisdom tooth, your dentist first needs to numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. Your dentist can use additional medication to safely sedate you during the extraction if you are feeling nervous about the procedure. Since the impacted tooth may still be under the gums and embedded in your jawbone, your dentist will need to remove a portion of the covering bone to extract the tooth. To minimize the amount of bone that is removed from the tooth, your dentist will often “section” your wisdom tooth so that each piece can be removed through a small opening in the bone.

What Is The Recovery Time For Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Once your wisdom teeth have been extracted, the healing process begins. Healing time varies depending on the degree of difficulty related to the extraction. Your dentist will let you know what to expect and will provide instructions for a comfortable, efficient healing process.
