Prioritize The Health & Function Of Your Smile With Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of molars to emerge in the back of your mouth. While some people have enough space in their mouths for these teeth to erupt, others require the removal of these teeth. At Sleep Dentistry of Portland and Sleep Dentistry of Vancouver, we’re here to help!

Why Removing Wisdom Teeth Is Often Necessary:

  • Overcrowding: Often, there isn't enough space in the mouth to accommodate the emergence of wisdom teeth. This can lead to overcrowding, misalignment, and potential damage to surrounding teeth.
  • Impaction: Wisdom teeth can become impacted, meaning they don't fully emerge from the gumline. This can cause pain, infection, and cyst formation.
  • Infection and Pain: Wisdom teeth are located in the back of the mouth, making them difficult to clean properly. This increases the risk of infection and chronic pain, especially when they partially erupt.

The Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure:

Our dentist will perform a thorough examination, often including X-rays, to determine the necessity of wisdom teeth removal. The procedure is typically performed under local or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and minimize pain during the surgery. The dentist will carefully remove the wisdom teeth. The technique may vary based on the tooth's position and whether it is impacted or not. After the procedure, you will receive post-operative instructions to aid in a smooth recovery. This may include pain management and dietary restrictions.

Benefits of Wisdom Teeth Removal:

By removing wisdom teeth, you can prevent potential dental issues such as misalignment, crowding, infection, and pain. Wisdom teeth removal can enhance oral hygiene by eliminating hard-to-reach areas where food particles and bacteria can accumulate. Removal can provide significant relief if you've been experiencing discomfort due to impacted or infected wisdom teeth.
