Wisdom Teeth Removal
The third molars, which are commonly called wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to erupt. Because of this, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there is not sufficient space for the wisdom teeth, they may become impacted (unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone) or grow in at an incorrect angle. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt as they should can lead to several dental problems, such as:
- Disturbing the natural tooth alignment or orthodontic treatment
- Damage to neighboring teeth
- Tooth decay
- Infection and inflammation in the gums or other tissues
- The formation of cysts
- Damage to the jawbone
Our oral surgeon may recommend wisdom teeth removal to avoid these serious complications and to keep your smile healthy. Our team will ensure that your wisdom teeth removal treatment is as painless and comfortable as possible. To learn more about wisdom teeth removal, please call or visit us today. We are committed to keeping your smile in the best possible health.
The most common anesthesia option for wisdom teeth removal is a combination of IV sedation and local anesthesia, but other options are available and can be discussed with you. The anesthesia chosen for your wisdom teeth removal procedure will be based on your medical history and personal preference, among other factors.
Please visit our anesthesia page for more information about your anesthesia options at Fishbein Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

In the immediate days following your oral surgery procedure, a soft food diet and a little extra care to your mouth are recommended. Following your instructions will promote healing and minimize the risk of complications. If you have any questions about your care before or after your surgery, please call our office for assistance.
