Are you experiencing discomfort, pain, or swelling in the back of your mouth? It might be time to consider wisdom teeth removal. This common and routine procedure is expertly performed by our skilled oral surgeons at Implants Northwest in Idaho.

Why Wisdom Teeth Removal Is Essential:

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. However, they often pose problems due to lack of space in the mouth. Here’s why removal is necessary:

  1. Impacted Teeth: When wisdom teeth don’t fully emerge or grow at odd angles, they become impacted. This can lead to pain, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth.
  2. Overcrowding: Wisdom teeth may push against other teeth, causing misalignment and crowding.
  3. Gum Disease: Cleaning wisdom teeth properly can be challenging, leading to gum disease and other oral health issues.

Our Advanced Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure:

At Implants Northwest, our oral surgeons utilize cutting-edge techniques and equipment for a safe and comfortable experience. Depending on your needs, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation.

During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth and surrounding bone. If necessary, the tooth may be sectioned into smaller pieces for easier removal. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures.

Tips for Smooth Recovery:

Following wisdom teeth removal, proper care is crucial for a speedy recovery. Here are some tips:

  1. Rest: Take it easy for the first few days after surgery.
  2. Swelling Reduction: Apply ice packs to the affected area to reduce swelling.
  3. Diet: Stick to soft foods and plenty of fluids.
  4. Avoidance: Steer clear of using straws, smoking, or alcohol in the initial recovery period.
  5. Oral Hygiene: Keep your mouth clean by gently rinsing with saltwater.
