Impacted wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth removal is often necessary when they become impacted, meaning they do not fully emerge or grow at an angle, which can lead to pain, swelling, and infection.

Overcrowding Teeth

Extracting wisdom teeth can prevent overcrowding and misalignment of your other teeth.  This is vital for maintaining the overall health and appearance of your smile.

Gum disease & tooth decay

Removing wisdom teeth can reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay, as their hard-to-reach location makes proper cleaning difficult, leading to plaque and bacteria buildup.

Cysts and tumors

In some cases, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to the development of cysts or tumors in the jawbone, which can cause damage to surrounding teeth and bone if left untreated.

How do I know if I need my wisdom teeth removed?

At SEDA Dental, our team of professionals will assess your wisdom teeth during regular dental checkups, using X-rays and clinical examinations to determine if extraction is necessary. Common indicators for removal include pain, swelling, infection, or impacted wisdom teeth causing issues with adjacent teeth.

Is wisdom teeth removal painful?

Our skilled dentists at SEDA Dental prioritize your comfort during wisdom teeth removal. We use local anesthesia and, if necessary, sedation options to ensure a virtually pain-free experience. Some post-operative discomfort is normal but can be managed with prescribed pain medication and proper aftercare.

What is the recovery time after wisdom teeth extraction?

The recovery time after wisdom teeth removal at SEDA Dental varies depending on the complexity of the extraction. Generally, most patients can expect to resume normal activities within 3-5 days. Complete healing may take a few weeks, but our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to promote a smooth recovery.

What should I eat after wisdom teeth removal?

Following wisdom teeth extraction at SEDA Dental, we recommend consuming soft foods and liquids for the first few days, such as soups, smoothies, mashed potatoes, and yogurt. Gradually reintroduce solid foods as your comfort level improves, and avoid using straws or consuming hard, crunchy foods during the healing process.

Can I go back to work or school after the procedure?

The team at SEDA Dental advises taking at least one to two days off from work or school following wisdom teeth removal to allow for rest and recovery. Your ability to resume normal activities will depend on your individual healing process and the complexity of your extraction.

What are the potential complications of wisdom teeth removal?

Although complications from wisdom teeth removal are rare at SEDA Dental, as with any surgical procedure, risks may include infection, dry socket, nerve injury, or damage to adjacent teeth. Our experienced dental team takes every precaution to minimize these risks and ensure a safe and successful extraction.
