Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom Teeth Removal in Smithtown, NY

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically begin to emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. While some individuals have no issues with their wisdom teeth, others may experience various problems due to a lack of space in the jaw or the teeth erupting at an angle.

Common issues associated with wisdom teeth include:

  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: When there is insufficient space for wisdom teeth to fully emerge, they may become stuck below the gums (impacted). This can lead to pain, infection, gum swelling, and damage to adjacent teeth.
  • Crowding and Misalignment: Wisdom teeth can exert pressure on surrounding teeth, causing them to shift and result in crowding. This can undo previous orthodontic work.
  • Tooth Decay and Gum Disease: Located at the back of the mouth, wisdom teeth are challenging to clean properly, increasing the risk of gum disease in those hard-to-reach areas.

The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process:

  • Consultation and Evaluation: Dr. Carl, Dr. James, and Dr. Patti will conduct a comprehensive examination, including X-rays, to assess the position, size, and condition of your wisdom teeth. They will explain the procedure in detail, address any questions, and develop a personalized treatment plan.
  • Sedation: Various sedation options are available to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Our dentists will recommend the most appropriate method based on the extraction's complexity and your anxiety level.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Using advanced techniques and instruments, the wisdom teeth are carefully removed.
  • Post-Extraction Care: After wisdom teeth removal, our team will provide detailed instructions on post-operative care to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications. We will also discuss pain management techniques and provide any necessary prescriptions.

If you are experiencing pain, discomfort, or other issues related to your wisdom teeth, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Carl Lovarata's office in Smithtown, NY.
