What are Wisdom teeth?

Wisdom Teeth are the last set of molars that most people get. They are also called Third Molars. When properly aligned, they are beneficial, but they often require extraction because they cause problems.
What are the Problems caused by wisdom teeth?
  • Your jaw may not be large enough for them, they may become impacted and unable to break through your gums.
  • Your wisdom teeth may break partway through your gums, causing a flap of gum tissue to grow over them. Food and germs can get trapped under the flap and cause your gums to become red, swollen, and painful. These are signs of infection.
  • More serious problems can develop from impacted teeth, such as infection, damage to other teeth and bone, or a cyst.
  • One or more of your wisdom teeth may come in at an awkward angle, with the top of the tooth facing forward, backward or to either side.
Do I need to have my Wisdom Teeth removed?
To determine if you have wisdom teeth that need to be removed, our dentists at East Market Dental use Digital X-rays and 3D Scan to exactly find the location and orientation of these teeth in your jawbone. You can schedule a Consultation at our office where the Dentist can assess if your Wisdom Teeth require removal

What is a 3D Scan?
    A 3D Scan is the most advanced technology used in Dental Offices these days. Only a very few Dental Offices have them but this scan can show the dentist how your wisdom teeth are located inside of your bone in 3D. It also tells them how difficult it would be to remove these teeth and potential dangers during the extraction of these teeth.
    The Scan itself is totally painless. You will be positioned in front of the 3D Machine with your head positioned and the machine goes around your head in less than half a minute, not touching you at all. 

Removing a Wisdom tooth
    Before removing a wisdom tooth, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. The gum tissue over the tooth will be opened up and any bone that is covering the tooth will be taken out. The tissue connecting the tooth to the bone will be separated and then the tooth will be removed. Sometimes the tooth might need to be cut into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove.
    After the tooth is removed, you may need stitches. Some stitches dissolve over time and some have to be removed after a few days. You will be informed after the surgery whether your stitches need to be removed. A folded cotton gauze pad placed over the wound will help stop the bleeding.
    In most cases, the recovery period lasts only a few days. Mild swelling in the area of surgery is normal and should subside in a few days. Taking pain killers as prescribed and following the post-operative instructions will help speed up your recovery. You can download a copy of the post-operative instructions here.
