Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom Tooth Removal KarachiEven before wisdom teeth start causing problems, it’s likely that they may affect your dental health in the future if they aren’t removed. Wisdom tooth removal is a routine procedure that will prevent future problems, and keep your smile strong and healthy.

Wisdom teeth typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 24. Often, as wisdom teeth grow, they become impacted, meaning that there is not enough space for them in the back of the mouth. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, an onset of symptoms may occur, including pain, swelling, infection, jaw stiffness, and the possibility of damage to surrounding teeth.

In our practice, we make sure wisdom tooth removal is a comfortable, pain-free procedure. Our office utilizes state of the art 3D Cone Beam technology that allows the surgeon to virtually plan the surgery before entering the patient’s mouth. Wisdom tooth removal is either done with local anesthesia or general anesthesia.

Dentists recommend that impacted wisdom teeth be removed between the ages of 16 and 20, whether they are causing problems or not. As a person ages, it is more likely for wisdom teeth to cause complications, so it is recommended that teenagers visit our practice for a comprehensive wisdom tooth exam.
