Why People Choose to Remove Wisdom Teeth

Have you ever wondered why third molars are coined “wisdom teeth?” Well, it’s because they come in at a significantly later age—and with age comes wisdom. When wisdom teeth arrive, the mouth often already has a complete set of permanent teeth. While it’s possible to have healthy wisdom teeth eruption, they can become an issue anywhere between the early teens to mid-twenties, such as:

Wisdom Teeth Removal for Prevention

When a wisdom tooth doesn’t have enough room to develop correctly, it becomes trapped beneath the gum line and partially or fully impacted. Infamously, wisdom teeth are prone to impaction—which is why many people opt for pulling wisdom teeth before they have a chance to cause wisdom teeth pain, infection, and other problems.

Generally, it’s wiser to prevent a problem rather than try to solve it. So, many young people consider and undergo wisdom teeth removal long before eruption. Our proactive dentists use dental x-rays to closely monitor wisdom teeth extraction at general dentistry exams. Typically, they will suggest wisdom teeth removal if they predict a problem in the near future based on your unique jaws, teeth, and other dental structures.

What You Can Expect During Wisdom Teeth Surgery

From time to time, excess gum tissue or bone limits access to an impacted wisdom tooth. If this happens, you’ll likely need wisdom teeth extraction surgery. Although the term “surgery” sounds intimidating to some, Haven Dentistry simplifies wisdom (and other impacted) teeth removal:

  • Step 1: First, the dentist will offer local anesthesia and sedation to help the patient feel more comfortable and at ease.
  • Step 2: Next, your oral surgeon creates an incision in the gum tissue at the surgical site.
  • Step 3: If needed, your dentist will remove bone that blocks access to the tooth.
  • Step 4: Lastly, the doctor removes the tooth and sutures the surgical site.

Ways that Haven Dentistry Makes Wisdom Teeth Extraction More Comfortable

We’ll admit it: tooth removal is not a procedure that most people look forward to, but it does not need to be traumatic, drawn-out, or uncomfortable. When you choose Haven Dentistry for wisdom tooth removal, our dental team will do everything in our power to ensure that this process is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

During our patient-centric planning process, we offer the following types of anesthesia and sedation to help the patient feel and stress less.

  • Local Anesthetic: To prevent discomfort, we completely numb the surgical site with a local anesthetic. Typically, patients expect to feel pressure but no pain.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: Does the thought of wisdom tooth removal cause you to quake? If so, ask our Richmond dentists about oral conscious sedation. This needle-free sedation method can help you feel more relaxed before your procedure.
