7 Reasons You May Need Wisdom Tooth Extraction

At Escala Family Dentistry, our dental team strives to protect and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are various circumstances where extracting your wisdom tooth is the only option to preserve and protect your smile. You can rest assured that you're in skilled hands as our dental team leverages years of experience and training. During your initial visit, we'll outline some of the reasons that our Denver wisdom teeth extraction services may be necessary, including:

  1. One or more wisdom teeth are impacted
  2. Your jaws are too small to handle wisdom tooth eruption safely
  3. Your teeth are too crowded

What to Expect When We Remove Your Wisdom Teeth

If our dentist determines wisdom tooth extraction is necessary, we'll start the process by taking detailed x-rays of your tooth to evaluate its overall condition. The detailed imaging and examination data we gather will help us form a plan for extraction. Depending on the nature of your extraction, we'll provide you with details on what to expect on the day of your surgery, including after-care instructions.

When you visit our practice for your procedure, a skilled anesthesiologist will begin by providing you with anesthesia to help make your experience more comfortable. Our dentist will then use specialized dental instruments to gently remove your wisdom tooth. However, this step may vary depending on whether your wisdom tooth is impacted. We'll then closely monitor the extraction site to ensure that it heals properly.

Helping You Feel Comfortable

We take the time to explain each step of the procedure and will make any accommodations whenever possible so you can feel confident about the process. Additionally, we bring in an anesthesiologist to safely administer the required level of anesthesia needed to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions FAQs

It's normal to have various questions about our Denver wisdom tooth extraction services. Our team is here to answer any you may have. Some frequently asked questions about wisdom tooth extractions include:

After my wisdom tooth extraction, should I leave the space empty?

Our practice recommends that you place a restoration in the missing space as soon as possible. Missing wisdom teeth can lead to jawbone loss as a tooth isn't stimulating the bone.

Although tooth extraction has a reputation for being painful, with proper numbing and sedation, you can expect to feel minimal discomfort.

Yes. Our dental practice can assist you with dental implant placement and restorations to help you get the care you need under one roof.

Although it depends on the nature of your extraction, your gums may take two weeks to heal. Our team will closely monitor your gums to help ensure that they heal correctly.

We recommend you refrain from eating hard or rough foods for the first few days. Instead, foods like soup, yogurt, and other soft items can help avoid complications as your gums heal.
