The molars at the very back of your mouth normally arise in your advanced adolescent years. Since there is so little room available in the back of your mouth, the remaining molars can become stuck or otherwise obstructed. This, in turn, might mean having a dental cyst, augmented pressure, or an infection. As time goes on, an obstructed wisdom tooth could even threaten the otherwise strong root of your rear molars.
To resolve this problem, your wisdom teeth can sometimes be removed in a dental office. However, a deeply impacted wisdom tooth might require surgical extraction with full sedation at Williams and Williams Facial and Oral Surgery.
After the extraction, it will take an hour or two for the sedative to completely wear off. You will need to ask a friend or family member drive you home from our office and help you out for a little while. Additional postoperative care instructions and any pertinent prescriptions will be given to you by your oral surgeon.
If you live in the Dallas, Texas, area and you are having wisdom tooth discomfort, simply call 214-691-0101 to schedule a consultation at Williams and Williams Facial and Oral Surgery.
