Wisdom Teeth Removal Hurst, TX

Your third molars (wisdom teeth) are the last of your adult teeth to come in, usually in your late teens. With this late arrival, they may crowd your other teeth. This can cause problems with your bite and other oral health issues. When examining teens and young adults, your dentist will keep a close eye on wisdom teeth. If extraction is needed to prevent problems, we can typically perform wisdom teeth removal in Hurst.

You’ll feel more comfortable having this procedure performed by your family dentist instead of an unfamiliar oral surgeon. It’s easy to remain calm with:

  • Effective local anesthesia and a choice of sedation to keep you pain-free and relaxed throughout your treatment
  • Dentists who explain everything and answer your questions so there won’t be any unexpected surprises
  • Comfortable surroundings that help you relax
  • Patient-friendly technology, including an intraoral camera, to improve your care

If you think you may need to have your wisdom teeth extracted, call us today at 817-270-9217. If you’ve already spoken to another dentist about your wisdom teeth, receive a free second opinion from your team.

Proactive Treatment Can Maintain Your Dental Health

In some cases, wisdom teeth won’t cause any discomfort or problems. For many others, however, possible issues include:

  • Crowding, which can cause nearby teeth to move out of position
  • Impacted teeth that don’t emerge completely from the gums, making it difficult to keep teeth clean and leaving you more susceptible to gum disease and cavities
  • Teeth that emerge at an awkward angle, which also makes it difficult to properly care for teeth

If possible, it’s best to remove wisdom teeth before the age of 25 because:

  • Teeth have less established roots, so they are easier and more comfortable to remove
  • Younger patients typically experience a faster recovery
  • You’ll find it easier to keep your other teeth clean and healthy since you’ll have more room in the back of your jaw

Common Questions About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Who should get wisdom teeth removal?

Our dentists typically suggest removing wisdom teeth if they are coming in at a crooked or incorrect angle, if they fail to emerge completely through the gums, or if there isn’t enough room for them to come in without crowding other teeth. Since most people’s wisdom teeth come in in their late teens or early twenties, this is often the best time to get them removed, if necessary.

Can wisdom teeth removal affect other teeth?

Yes! Removing wisdom teeth avoids crowding, which can cause nearby teeth to move out of their proper position. Wisdom teeth extraction typically also makes it easier to brush and floss the teeth in the back of your mouth. This makes you less susceptible to tooth decay, infection, and gum disease.

What is recovery like after wisdom teeth removal?

You can expect to experience soreness and swelling for several days. You’ll want to take it easy and avoid any strenuous physical activity. We’ll provide you with complete instructions on diet, oral hygiene, and other aspects of recovery. Gargling with lukewarm salt water will ease discomfort and help keep your mouth clean. Full recovery takes about two weeks.
