Say goodbye to painful extractions with the expertise of Dr. Desai and the Haven Dental Studio team in Zionsville. Through advanced methods and a relaxing dental experience, we can remove your wisdom teeth without excessively painful extractions.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in your mouth. Most people are about 17 when this final set of teeth arrives. In many cases, the mouth is already full of teeth, and there is no place for the wisdom teeth to be comfortable.
The lack of space can lead to an impacted wisdom tooth and affect the alignment of the rest of your teeth. It can cause damage to the jaw and cause infection. Left untreated, you can end up with oral health issues that last a long time.
Dental professionals often recommend extracting wisdom teeth early in the process to prevent severe issues.
Sometimes it is difficult to know if your wisdom teeth have become impacted or you're just sore from the erupting teeth. If you have some of these symptoms, you should visit your dentist:
Dentists extract millions of wisdom teeth annually - over 10 million.
Usually, wisdom teeth surgery is elective, but about 40% of the procedures are necessary. Those who choose to have them removed without immediate requirement intend the wisdom teeth extraction to prevent future problems.
Our opinion is that most people should remove wisdom teeth when they reach their late teens or early twenties. The teeth are still developing, so the roots are smaller and less set.
The longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove the teeth. The tooth extraction procedure gains complexity, and recovery is likely to take longer, as well.
Wisdom teeth can be extracted from people of any age, but the younger a patient is, the easier the removal will be, and the faster recovery is likely to be.
The cost of removing wisdom teeth varies depending on factors such as:
Discuss the cost with the dentist during a consultation appointment for an estimate of the final cost and insurance coverage.
We help you to relax with sedation. You won't be completely unconscious, but you will be comfortable and have no memory of the procedure while the teeth are removed. Wisdom tooth extraction usually takes around an hour for four wisdom teeth.
You will wake up feeling a little groggy, but our team will ensure you are well enough to go home before leaving with your driver.
We will give you tooth socket care instructions. The more complicated the procedure, the longer the recovery, but most people get back to usual activities within a couple of days.
