Wisdom Teeth Removal McKinney, TX

Our dentists look at all your teeth during dental exams. They’ll pay especially close attention to your third molars (wisdom teeth), which come in a decade or more later than your other adult teeth. Because of their late arrival, there isn’t always enough room for them in your jaw. These close quarters can cause problems that may lead us to recommend wisdom teeth removal in McKinney.

Like any procedure, you’ll likely feel less anxious having it performed by your family dentist rather than an oral surgeon you don’t know. We’ll ensure it goes smoothly with:

  • Effective local anesthesia to prevent pain
  • Three soothing forms of sedation, so you can choose the right level of relaxation
  • Advanced technology, including an intraoral camera we can use to share images of your mouth with you
  • A full explanation of the procedure before it starts, so you know exactly what to expect

If you think you may need a wisdom teeth extraction, call us today at 972-787-1869. Signs include tooth pain, jaw pain, and swollen gums. If you’ve discussed it with another dentist, ask our team for a free second opinion.

Keep Your Mouth Healthy With A Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. If they’re not causing any issues, we may recommend leaving them alone. However, common problems include:

  • Crowding that affects other teeth and even your bite
  • Teeth that are impacted (don’t come fully through the gums) or come in at an angle rather than straight, both of which make you more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay

If you do need removal, we recommend having the procedure before the age of 25. Since your roots are less established, it will be easier and more comfortable to remove the teeth. In addition, younger patients typically recover faster. Once the teeth are removed, you’ll have more room in the back of your jaw, which makes it easier to keep your other teeth clean and healthy.

Common Questions About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Who should get wisdom teeth removal?

Our doctors commonly recommend removing wisdom teeth if they are coming in at a crooked or incorrect angle, if they stop emerging completely through the gums, or if there isn’t enough space for them to come in without crowding other teeth. Considering that lots of people’s wisdom teeth emerge in their early twenties or late teens, this is often the ideal time to get them removed, if necessary.

Can wisdom teeth removal affect other teeth?

Extracting wisdom teeth eliminates crowding, which can cause neighboring teeth to shift out of their correct positions. Additionally, wisdom teeth extraction usually makes it less complicated to brush and floss the teeth in the back of your mouth. This makes you less susceptible to tooth infection, cavities, and gum disease.

What is recovery like after wisdom teeth removal?

You can expect to experience tenderness and swelling for several days. You’ll need to rest and prevent any type of difficult physical exertion. We’ll offer you full guidelines on diet, dental hygiene, and other aspects of recovery. Swishing gently with warm salt water will help ease discomfort and keep your mouth clean. Full healing takes approximately two weeks.
