When Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Although not everybody has their wisdom teeth removed, most people will need to have at least one of these molars extracted to prevent dental issues. Generally, the earlier wisdom teeth are detected, the better. They are easier to remove when the tissue is still soft and flexible before breaking through the gum tissue.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA)1, here are some signs that could indicate your wisdom teeth should come out:

  • Pain in the teeth and jaw
  • Infections or impacted teeth
  • Overcrowding that is damaging other teeth
  • They are difficult to clean
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Suggested for successful orthodontic treatment (in some cases)

On average, wisdom teeth usually come in between the ages of 17 and 252 and are detected during routine exams and x-rays. Even if your wisdom teeth don’t seem to be bothering you at the time, your dentist or oral surgeon may recommend extraction if it appears:

  • These molars are growing at the wrong angle
  • They are only partially erupted
  • Your jaw cannot accommodate them
  • They become fully impacted

How Does Wisdom Teeth Extraction Work?

When wisdom teeth have the potential to cause dental problems or interfere with oral health, wisdom teeth extraction is standard medical advice you’ll hear from your dentist. Although you can wait to have a wisdom tooth removed, you run the risk of developing dental issues, needing a more complicated surgery, and a longer recovery period.

The extraction procedure involves sedating a patient and completely removing the wisdom teeth and roots, including the parts that may be trapped in the gums or jawbone. Some wisdom teeth are easy to remove and can be done by a general dentist. However, if there are complications, an oral surgeon will need to remove them.

If you’re looking for an experienced wisdom tooth specialist, Absolute Dental has you covered. Contact our team to find a Las Vegas location near you.

What Types of Sedation Are Available for Wisdom Teeth Extraction?

One common question we get is, “Does it hurt?” As with other forms of oral surgery, sedation options are available to ensure patients are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure.

Some types of sedation our wisdom teeth extraction Las Vegas team offers include:

  1. Nitrous Oxide – Also known as “laughing gas,” this common sedation method includes breathing in the gas through a mask to relax and numb the patient.
  2. Local Anesthetic – When an extraction will be a simple procedure, a local anesthetic injected in the surgery site may be enough pain relief for some patients.
  3. Pill Sedatives – Sedatives in pill form, including Halcion (Triazolam), are available to help patients sleep through the surgery but not be unconscious for long periods of time.
  4. Intravenous Anesthetic – I.V. anesthesia directly in the bloodstream is powerful and works quickly to give a deeper sedation level for patients who are particularly anxious or need more extensive work to remove an impacted wisdom tooth or teeth.
  5. General Anesthesia – Some oral surgeries are complex and require more time than a standard extraction. In these rare circumstances, oral surgeons may suggest general anesthesia in a hospital setting to ensure the procedure goes smoothly.

Sedation recovery times vary depending on which type was used during the procedure. However, patients should expect to feel slightly groggy or disoriented until the sedation completely wears off.

Talk to your dentist about sedation options and what might work best for you when removing impacted wisdom teeth. To learn more, contact our team to set up a consultation appointment!

What Can I Expect During Wisdom Teeth Extraction Recovery?

Although it varies from patient to patient, the average recovery time after a tooth extraction is about 7 to 10 days. Here are some things you can expect during your recovery:

  • Soreness and sensitivity are typical immediately following the extraction.
  • Discomfort should not last more than a few days.
  • Your dentist may recommend over-the-counter medication to manage pain.
  • Prescription pain medication may be necessary for higher degrees of discomfort.
  • The need for medication will typically lessen with each day after the extraction.

After the procedure, your dentist or oral surgeon will give you care instructions. It’s essential to follow all directions to prevent complications or more dental work. Aftercare may include:

  • Avoiding certain foods
  • Specific cleaning instructions
  • Following an antibiotic schedule during the healing process

Further Frequently Asked Questions

Although it varies from patient to patient, the average recovery time after a tooth extraction is about 7 to 10 days. If everything goes well, you should expect your mouth to heal within that time. To avoid prolonging the healing process, be sure to take all medication as prescribed, and follow your dentist’s instructions carefully. A dislodged blood clot or infection will result in a longer recovery period.

Most patients will experience some soreness and sensitivity immediately following the extraction. However, the discomfort should not last more than a few days. In some cases, pain medication will be needed to manage higher degrees of discomfort, but the need for pain medication will typically lessen with each day after the extraction.

After the wisdom teeth extraction, your dentist or oral surgeon will give you care instructions for a quick and easy recovery. It is crucial to follow all directions that are given to you to prevent complications afterward. This may include avoiding certain foods, specific cleaning instructions, or following an antibiotic schedule during the healing process. Although wisdom teeth removal is considered minor surgery, major problems can develop if proper care is not exercised after the procedure.
