01
WHAT ARE wisdom teeth?
A wisdom tooth, also known as a third molar, is the last tooth to erupt in your mouth. A wisdom tooth growing in its space generally occurs between the ages of 15 and 25. Most individuals are born with 4 wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth often become impacted due to limited space. An impacted wisdom tooth or impacted wisdom teeth occurs when there is a lack of space in your jaw and its growth and eruption are prevented by overlying gum, bone or another tooth. Wisdom teeth symptoms include pain, swelling, infection, and deep periodontal pockets. Wisdom teeth pain can be severe and may be an indication of a dental emergency requiring immediate dental removal of wisdom teeth. Because the area in question may be infected, wisdom teeth pain relief will occur upon dental removal of the wisdom tooth or teeth causing the pain.
02
SHOULD YOU HAVE your wisdom teeth removed?
Certainly. The majority of people should look into wisdom teeth removal. There’s a slight chance that wisdom teeth will grow into a proper position where they can be easily cleaned. However, over 85% of people will have impacted wisdom teeth, meaning there isn’t enough room for the wisdom tooth to grow into the proper position. 

Impacted wisdom teeth cause irritation or infection of the gums, or crowding and decay of other teeth, ultimately leading to wisdom teeth pain. Dr. Singh is a Periodontist who specializes in procedures such as dental extractions, dental emergencies, dental removal, tooth extraction, wisdom tooth removal, or wisdom teeth extraction.
03
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
Some patients will experience discomfort from pressure, infection, inflammation or irritated and deep periodontal pockets when their wisdom teeth emerge. The only way to know for sure if your wisdom teeth need to be removed is to have a qualified dentist, like Dr. Singh, evaluate them by taking a Panoramic X-ray or 3D CT scan. Despite the considerable concern regarding impacted wisdom teeth, several recent studies found that third molars which have broken through the tissue and erupted into the mouth, in a normal, upright position, may be just as prone to disease as those third molars that remain impacted. 

Not all problems related to wisdom teeth are painful or visible. Damage can occur without you being aware of it. No one can predict when wisdom teeth complications will occur, but when they do, wisdom teeth pain can be more severe and difficult to treat, thus complicating teeth surgery. This is why a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Singh who specializes in wisdom teeth extraction, dental removal, and teeth surgery, is essential.
04
AT WHAT AGE should wisdom teeth removal be performed?
It is common for wisdom teeth extraction to be performed in the late teens to early twenties. The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is when the roots are ½ to ⅔ developed, and the only way to know this is with an X-ray examination. Wisdom teeth can cause problems at any age after the teenage years. However, the risk of complications or a dental emergency with teeth extraction goes up the older you get. It is recommended to have a comprehensive consultation and treatment plan put together, which includes wisdom teeth removal cost and a Panoramic X-ray or 3D CT Scan.
05
HOW ARE wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom tooth removal is now more comfortable than ever. Using sedation, Dr. Singh can make your dental extraction experience more pleasant than ever. After the gums are numbed, the doctor meticulously opens the gums up so they can be gently pushed aside. The wisdom tooth is then exposed and extracted. Most often the tooth is dislodged in one whole piece. Occasionally the tooth is removed in two pieces to limit risk to the underlying nerve, or because smaller pieces are easier to remove, making for a smoother dental removal. After the wisdom tooth removal, the gums are closed with sutures to help accelerate the healing process.
06
DOES IT HURT to get your wisdom teeth removed?
The teeth surgery procedure itself is mostly painless. With sedation dentistry you’ll be relaxed, comfortable, and, given the type of sedation, unaware of the passing time. In addition to sedation, local anesthetics numb the mouth to anything that could be painful. Most people experience some soreness during the healing period following surgery. Dr. Singh utilizes recent advances in medicine and state-of-the-art technology to allow patients to have wisdom teeth pain, to undergo their dental removal in a manner that promotes rapid healing and minimal post-operative discomfort. We are one of only a handful of centers in the area that has our own 3-D CT scanner in-house allowing us to take 3-D imaging on patients to verify nerve positions, ensuring safety and minimal trauma.
