Problems Caused by Wisdom Teeth

One of the services that we provide is wisdom teeth extraction. Glendale patients may seek care before or after these teeth have fully developed.

Wisdom teeth generally come in as people reach their late teens or early twenties. Years later, the teeth can become a significant problem to oral health. As wisdom teeth grow, they can either crowd existing teeth, or they can grow at an angle that creates pockets between teeth or in their gums. Wisdom teeth may develop at such a severe angle that they become impacted and never fully erupt from the surface of the gums.

Without wisdom teeth extraction, Glendale patients may develop problems such as discomfort, pain, infection, or misalignment of their full-grown teeth. For these reasons, it is important to seek the support of a professional trained in oral surgery and sedation dentistry.

Glendale Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Patients who need their wisdom teeth removed should know that the procedure is one we perform regularly. During the initial consultation, a Lytle, Tate and Stamper doctor will evaluate the patient’s teeth to determine an approach to extraction. The level of impaction, the number of teeth to be removed, and the overall health of the patient may all be addressed.

The surgery may take place under local anesthesia, local anesthesia with light sedation, or, potentially, general anesthesia. The decision about sedation dentistry will be made in advance by the doctor. Glendale patients will receive all of the information that they need before oral surgery so that they are prepared for the procedure and confident in the road ahead.

Recovery from wisdom teeth extraction is typically two to three days. LTS doctors will work with patients to manage any discomfort they may experience, and they encourage questions along the way. Our goal is to support the patient’s future comfort and health.
