Wisdom Teeth Removal Fort Worth – Is It Necessary?

Wisdom teeth removal Fort worth is one of the procedures we carry out on a regular basis. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow and often there isn’t sufficient room in the mouth for them to grow into. As a result, they may grow in at the wrong angle or direction and when this happens it can cause infections, overcrowding, swelling, and ear pain. If they fail to erupt fully through the gums, they’re known as impacted wisdom teeth.

So when is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

While many people find their wisdom teeth eventually grow and settle down quickly others may not be so lucky. At Perfect Dental we may recommend wisdom teeth extraction if:

  • The patient is experiencing pain, pressure, and swelling

  • It’s obvious that the teeth have no room to grow and could cause damage to other teeth

  • Teeth are diseased or partially erupted making it difficult to clean them

Our dentist in Fort Worth will carry out an oral examination and take X-rays of your mouth in order to ascertain the position of the tooth. This will determine the complexity of the extraction.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure – What to Expect

Depending on your medical history and preference, your wisdom teeth may be extracted under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. These options and any risks associated with your surgery will be discussed prior to the wisdom teeth removal procedure. Once the wisdom tooth or teeth have been extracted your gums will be closed with sutures if necessary and you’ll be asked to bite down on a piece of clean gauze to stop the bleeding. You’ll be supervised in the office until such time as we feel you can go home.

How long does pain after wisdom teeth extraction last?

This typically depends on the tooth and the severity of the surgery. It can take up to two weeks to recover fully although caring properly for the wound will help the patient heal faster. In some cases, wisdom teeth removal in Fort Worth can cause bruising, pain, and swelling which also takes time to heal. That said, patients should notice a gradual improvement with each new day.

Top Wisdom Teeth Removal Recovery Tips

  1. Heed the advice of your dentist in Fort Worth regarding medications and mouthwashes

  2. Use Ibuprofen to reduce swelling and ease the pain

  3. Take plenty of relaxation for the first couple of days

  4. Wisdom teeth removal recovery time off work – Consider taking a couple of days

  5. Avoid all hard foods. Instead consume only wisdom teeth removal food – drinks such as smoothies, milkshakes and soups and soft food such as scrambled eggs, mashed potato, ice cream, and yogurt.

If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain then don’t suffer longer than you have to. For an appointment to discuss wisdom teeth removal in Fort Worth.

Our Happy Patients

"Really great staff!!! I walked in with pain and left feeling so much better. They took x-rays with my little girl safely in the next room where I could hear her watching TV. Then the doctor came in and gave me a treatment plan, which includes me seeing an oral surgeon and overdue cleaning. The staff is so KNOWLEDGEABLE and FRIENDLY they all get an A++ from me. I definitely recommend going there for dental care."

"My boyfriend needed emergency dental care due to an unfortunate cricket accident. Via 1800 dentist, Perfect Dental not knowing the full extent of his dental needs, was able and willing to see him as a new patient within 1 hour of our call on a Saturday afternoon when most dentist offices were closed. The staff and dentist were sympathetic and made him feel at ease immediately. The office was pleasant and clean. Each room had a tv that included Netflix and an array of viewing options for the patients. Overall it was a wonderful experience and Perfect Dental is now his official dentist."
