Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Over the years of human evolution, due to the changes in diet and jawbone structure, wisdom teeth have become completely “obsolete.”
However, they won’t go away on their own, unfortunately! Wisdom teeth still persist on trying to come in to mouths that don’t have enough room to accommodate them, and as a result, most people will need to have their wisdom teeth extracted at some point.
Wisdom teeth can even become infected which can quickly turn into a dental emergency. In fact, infected wisdom teeth are one of the most common emergency situations we see at our office.
Wisdom teeth are your far back molars, two on each side, and they typically try to poke through the gums when people are in their late teens or early twenties.
For some, wisdom teeth come in without complications, there’s enough room for them, and the teeth never have to be pulled. But for the majority of people, wisdom teeth will need to be extracted because they become abscessed (which can cause severe pain), they become impacted, and/or they come in at an odd angle (e.g. horizontally, not vertically).
At our office, we perform all types of tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth extractions, and we often use sedation for the procedures.
We are one of the few dental offices in the Denver metro area to offer three sedation choices:
•IV sedation (anesthesia)
•oral sedation (also known as “sleep dentistry” or “conscious sedation”)
•nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”)
Wisdom teeth extractions are usually covered by your dental insurance. We accept most types of dental insurance plans, including United Concordia, Assurant, Delta Dental and Aetna. Also, we offer interest-free dental financing.
In a free dental consultation, which includes a 3D digital X-ray, we can take a look at your wisdom teeth and let you know what your options are.
