Wisdom Teeth Extractions: What You Need to Know at True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ

Pediatric wisdom teeth removal in Bloomfield, NJ

Wisdom teeth extraction is a common procedure for many teens and young adults. At True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ, we understand the importance of providing quality care when it comes to wisdom teeth extractions. We want our patients to feel comfortable and informed about the process and that they can make educated decisions about their oral health. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what you need to know before having your wisdom teeth extracted at our dental office in Bloomfield NJ.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically appear between ages 17- 25. They are located in the very back corners of your mouth on both sides and may cause problems if they don’t grow properly or become impacted (do not break through the gum properly). If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to pain, infection, cysts, or damage to nearby structures like nerves or sinuses and neighboring teeth. That is why it is important for people with impacted wisdom teeth to get them removed as soon as possible by our qualified pediatric dentists for teens like those at True Pediatric Dental Care in Bloomfield NJ!

Why Would I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

There are several reasons why someone might need their wisdom tooth extracted including overcrowding (not enough room), decay/ infection around the tooth due to difficulty with proper cleaning, gum disease around the wisdom teeth due to poor hygiene habits, or even cysts that form from an infected area.  In addition, there is usually not enough room for all four wisdom teeth and this makes extraction necessary in order to prevent problems with the neighboring molars. 

What Can I Expect During My Procedure?

Before any procedure begins at True Pediatric Dental Care in Bloomfield NJ you will receive a comprehensive exam that includes X-rays, so that our dentists can assess exactly what needs to be done! Once everything has been discussed with you regarding treatment options then the option of anesthesia will be offered, depending on how complicated extraction might be. Numbing medication may be sufficient but  if more complex work needs to be done such as removal of multiple impacted molars, sedation may be required.  Sutures (stitches) may also be placed depending on how much tissue was disturbed during surgery.  Sutures should dissolve w 7- 10 days after surgery. Once the procedure is complete, detailed instructions will be provided regarding post-operative care, such as taking antibiotics prescribed and avoiding certain foods until healing occurs.  This usually takes 1- 4 weeks,  depending upon eachindividual patient’s situation.

Conclusion

Having your wisdom teeth removed can be a daunting prospect, but it is often necessary to ensure good oral health and hygiene. At True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ, we use advanced technology and specialized instruments to make the procedure as safe and comfortable as possible. We provide pre-operative instructions so you know what to expect before the procedure, anesthesia options during surgery, and post-operative instructions for follow-up care after surgery.

Taking all these factors into consideration will help ensure a full recovery from wisdom teeth extraction with minimal discomfort or complications afterward. With our expertise in this field at True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ you can rest assured that your oral health is in good hands!
