      Oral Surgery

      Oral surgery includes routine extractions, wisdom tooth surgery, and the removal of impacted teeth. Most procedures go very well, take less than an hour and are done in our office. The oral surgery patient is seated and completely numbed. It's important to wait and allow the numbness to sink in fully. The dentist checks the depth of the anesthesia by making a small incision around the wisdom tooth. Once it is confirmed that the patient is completely numb the incision is lengthened and the gum tissue is gently pulled away from the wisdom tooth. If any of the surrounding bone is in the way, it is then removed. If needed, the wisdom tooth is then gently sectioned into pieces and the pieces are then removed. Finally, stitches are placed so that the gum tissue lays back in place correctly.

      Wisdom Tooth Extraction - Discount Prices on Wisdom Tooth Removal $181 Per Tooth

      Our participating dentists are dedicated to their patients' good health and well being. You are welcome to join our family of patients by calling (888) 380-6337.

      Wisdom Teeth Information

      What Are Wisdom Teeth?
      Wisdom teeth are third molars. Normally people have three permanent molars that develop in each quadrant of the mouth; upper, lower, right and left. The first molars usually grow into the mouth at around six years of age. The second molars grow in at around age 12. The third molars usually will try to grow in at around age 18 to 20 years. Since that is considered to be the age when people become wiser, third molars gained the nickname, "wisdom teeth." Actually, they are no different than any other tooth except that they are the last teeth to erupt, or grow into the mouth. They are just as useful as any other tooth if they grow in properly, have a proper bite relationship, and have healthy gum tissue around them. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

      What is an impaction?
      When wisdom teeth are prevented from erupting into the mouth properly, they are referred to as impacted. Teeth that have not erupted are not necessarily impacted. It may be that it is still too early in someone's dental development, and if time passes they might grow in properly. A dentist must examine a patient's mouth and his or her x-rays to determine if the teeth are impacted or will not grow in properly. Impacted teeth may cause problems. Impacted teeth can result in infection, decay of adjacent teeth, gum disease or formation of a cyst or tumor from the follicle, which is the tissue which formed the crown of the tooth. Many dentists recommend removal of impacted wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems.

      Erupted wisdom teeth
      Erupted wisdom teeth may also need to be removed. The dentist may recommend this if the tooth is non-functional, interfering with the bite, badly decayed, involved with or at risk for periodontal disease, or interfering with restoration of an adjacent tooth. Once again, every case is different and only your dentist can determine if there is a reason for you to have a tooth removed.

      When should wisdom teeth be removed?
      The following symptoms may indicate that the wisdom teeth have erupted and surfaced, and should be removed before they become impacted-meaning, the teeth have surfaced and have no room in the mouth to grow. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

      • pain
      • infection in the mouth
      • facial swelling
      • swelling of the gumline in the back of the mouth

      Many oral health specialists will recommend removal of the wisdom teeth, (when the roots are approximately formed, or three-fourths developed, usually in the adolescent years), as early removal will help to eliminate problems, such as an impacted tooth that destroys the second molar. Third molar impaction is the most prevalent medical developmental disorder.

      What problems are often associated with impacted third molars?

      • bacteria and plaque build-up
      • cysts development (a fluid- filled sac)
      • tumor development

      What is involved in the extraction procedure?
      Wisdom tooth extraction involves accessing the tooth through the soft and hard tissue, gently detaching the connective tissue between the tooth and the bone and removing the tooth.

      Check Menstrual Calendar For Tooth Extraction

      Dry socket, the most common post-operative complication from tooth extractions, delays the normal healing process and results when the newly formed blood clot in the extraction site does not form correctly or is prematurely lost. This blood clot lays the foundation for new tissue and bone to develop over a two-month healing process.

      "Women have a greater chance than men to develop dry socket," says Barbara A. Rich, DDS, FAGD, and Academy spokesperson. "But, for women who take oral contraceptives, their likelihood of developing a dry socket is twice as likely because of their increased estrogen level."

      A study recently published in General Dentistry, the clinical journal of the Academy of General Dentistry, reports that women who take oral contraceptives experienced a 31 percent incidence of dry socket after molar extractions performed in the first 22 days of their menstrual cycle. Within two to three days after estrogen use was discontinued, the extraction site tissue began the healing process. For women whose molar extractions were performed on days 23 through 28 of their cycle, no incidence of dry socket occurred.

      "Unless there is an emergency, women using birth control should try to schedule their extractions during the last week of their cycle, when estrogen levels are inactive," recommends Dr. Rich. "The healing process can then begin immediately."

      Anyone who just had a tooth extracted should avoid drinking through a straw, because the suction will interfere with healthier clotting. "Avoid smoking, which can contaminate the extraction site and excessive mouth rinsing, which may also interfere with blood clotting," says Dr. Rich.

      When to Avoid Chicken Noodle Soup

      Each year millions of Americans have their wisdom teeth removed. The vast majority of patients heal flawlessly with little discomfort and swelling, thankful impacted or painful wisdom teeth are no longer a daily woe.

      However, a small percentage of patients experience dry socket (alveolar osteitis)--the most common complication following tooth extractions-and one that may be avoided by following expert recommendations reports the Academy of General Dentistry, an organization of general dentists dedicated to continuing education.

      Dry socket is a painful condition that occurs when newly formed blood clots at the site of the tooth extraction do not develop correctly or are prematurely lost. Dry socket delays the healing process-much like picking at a scab on the knee delays the growth of new skin.

      Research confirms that patient risk factors including smoking, taking oral contraceptives, and insufficient oral healthcare habits significantly increase one's likelihood of dry socket, according to Jamie Houston, DMD, lead author of an article that appears in the September/October issue (Volume 50, Number 5) of General Dentistry, the Academy's clinical, peer-reviewed publication.

      "Stop smoking for at least 24 hours after wisdom teeth extractions. This is critical to preventing dry socket," says E. Mac Edington, DDS, MAGD, ABGD, spokesperson for the Academy. Smoking decreases blood supply to the protective blood clots, brings toxic products to the area decreasing healing and the negative pressure of sucking can pull out a newly formed blood clot.

      Studies show that high levels of estrogen found in the first 22 days of the menstrual cycle and in many oral contraceptives can double a woman's chance of developing dry socket. Dr. Edington recommends that all female patients on oral contraceptives schedule tooth extractions during days 23-28 of their menstrual cycle to reduce this risk.

      After wisdom teeth extraction, increased commitment to proper oral healthcare and nutrition helps reduce one's risk of dry socket. This includes not eating any food with residuals (popcorn, peanuts and pasta) three to four days following the procedure. Eating soft foods such as mashed potatoes, clear soup and pudding helps ensure food particles do not interfere with the normal formation and healing of the blood clots.

      "Even chicken noodle soup can be hazardous following wisdom teeth extractions," says Dr. Edington. "One patient who curbed his pack-a-day habit, came in with dry socket and he didn't know why…I ended up removing a noodle that displaced the blood clot."

      Additional tips to prevent dry socket

      1. Avoid spitting, sucking on a straw and drinking carbonated soft drinks for 2-3 days following the procedure.

      2. Gently brush adjacent teeth and swish salt water after meals to keep the mouth free of excess bacteria.

      3. Talk to your dentist about all medications you're taking including oral contraceptives, aspirin and herbal supplements

      Wisdom Teeth: Is It Wise To Remove Them?

      Common misunderstandings surround their name origin, removal reasons and pain sources. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to grow in the back of the mouth. Common misunderstandings surround their name origin, removal reasons and pain sources, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, an organization of general dentists dedicated to continuing education.

      "The name 'wisdom teeth' is age related - third molars don't erupt until teenage years and beyond, when people theoretically are more wise to the world," says Trey Petty, DDS, FAGD, spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry.

      Common reasons for wisdom teeth removal include impaction, pain and crowding of the other teeth, which are typical tooth growth characteristics.

      "If wisdom teeth are not visible, they are impacted or unable to erupt due to space and size limitations," says Dr. Petty. "Impacted teeth don't have enough room to grow, and will lay beneath the gums, which may or may not be a problem."

      Pain and tooth crowding are also top wisdom teeth problems. "Adults have forgotten what normal pain from a growing tooth feels like," says Dr. Petty. Complications also can arise when wisdom teeth partially erupt. The broken gum acts as a breeding ground for bacteria and germs.

      "When wisdom teeth partially erupt, food gets caught in the gums and may cause an infection, swelling, growth of a tumor or cyst and pain," says Dr. Petty. "If this happens, consult a dentist before problems worsen and affect overall oral health."

      "If wisdom teeth have erupted, the key to preserving them is maintaining good oral health by brushing twice a day and going to see a dentist twice a year," says Dr. Petty.
