Wisdom Teeth Removal

What Is Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure aimed at extracting the third set of molars, which typically emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood. Dr. Ken and Dr. Powell perform wisdom teeth removal to prevent or address complications such as overcrowding, misalignment, discomfort and the risk of infection. The procedure can involve the removal of normal wisdom teeth that have fully erupted or impacted wisdom teeth that have not fully emerged or are misaligned.

Normal vs. Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal

  • Normal Wisdom Teeth Removal: This procedure involves the extraction of wisdom teeth that have fully erupted into their correct position but may cause problems such as overcrowding or are difficult to clean, leading to decay and gum disease.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal: Impacted wisdom teeth are those that cannot fully emerge, either because of a lack of space or because they are emerging at an angle. This can lead to pain, swelling and infection. The removal of impacted wisdom teeth is a more complex procedure that may involve surgical extraction.
