Why Is Wisdom Teeth Removal Needed?

Your wisdom teeth can cause a whole variety of problems if they’re allowed to fully form into your mouth. In many cases, our dentists suggest they be removed because your jaw may not be large enough to house them. If this happens, the wisdom teeth can become impacted and unable to break through your gums. This can be painful and can even lead to infection.

At our practice in Woburn Wisdom Teeth Removal is often recommended for several reasons, including:

  • If they break partway through the gums, they can create a small flap in the gums that can easily become infected
  • Impacted teeth can lead to infection or damages to the surrounding teeth
  • Wisdom teeth can affect the positioning of your other teeth, so, if you’ve had orthodontia, and may ruin how straight your teeth are

Wisdom Teeth Removal Surgery and Recovery

During the process of your wisdom teeth removal, you will receive a local anesthetic to numb the areas where the teeth will be removed. We will also utilize many anxiety reducing and pain reducing techniques during your procedures.

During the surgery, we will perform the following:

  • Make an incision in the gum tissue
  • Remove bone that may be covering the tooth
  • Removal
  • Place stitches if necessary

  • Change your gauze pads regularly and inform your Woburn and Winchester dental surgeon if you’re still bleeding after 24 hours
  • Keep your head propped up to minimize bleeding
  • Ice the outside of your cheek to minimize swelling
  • Stay relaxed and don’t tax your body for a few days after surgery
