Wisdom Teeth Defined

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop, typically emerging in a person’s late teens or early twenties. These teeth are located at the back corners of the mouth on the top and bottom.

While some individuals never experience problems with their wisdom teeth, many others find that these teeth can lead to significant dental issues due to a lack of space in the mouth, resulting in impaction or incorrect growth. This can cause pain, pressure, and misalignment of the other teeth. Furthermore, impacted wisdom teeth are prone to cavities and gum disease because their hard-to-reach location makes them difficult to clean effectively. For these reasons, dental professionals often recommend the removal of problematic wisdom teeth to prevent future complications.

Our Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

At Dentistry in Middletown, we’re dedicated to making your wisdom tooth extraction as painless and stress-free as possible. Your journey begins with a consultation and exam, where our expert team will assess your dental health and take X-rays to determine the position and condition of your wisdom teeth.

Then, Dr. Uram will develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs, outlining the procedure and any sedation options to ensure maximum comfort. On the day of the extraction, our Middletown, DE, dentist will prepare you with sedation as per your treatment plan. Finally, he will then gently remove the wisdom tooth, taking care to minimize any discomfort.

Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Many people opt for wisdom tooth extractions because they can alleviate pain and pressure, prevent infection, mitigate the risk of some oral diseases, and improve oral hygiene.

What Is Wisdom Teeth Recovery Like?

Recovering from wisdom tooth extraction typically involves a short period of downtime to allow for healing. Most patients can expect some swelling and discomfort immediately following the procedure, which can be carefully managed with medications prescribed by Dr. Uram. Furthermore, ice packs and soft foods are recommended during the first few days to minimize swelling and prevent irritation of the extraction site.

With proper care and rest, patients often return to normal activities within a week. Our staff provides comprehensive and individualized aftercare instructions and is available to address any concerns during your recovery period.
