Happy Valley Wisdom Tooth Removal

Extractions for a pain-free smile

Understanding Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth (known as the third molars) grow in the back of your mouth and are the last ones to come through, usually between the ages of 18 to 25. In some cases, there’s no need to remove these teeth, but in others, they can lead to complications, which is why Dr. Schofield may advise you to remove them.

Key facts about wisdom teeth

  • Not everyone has them: About 10% of people are naturally without wisdom teeth.
  • Challenges in maintenance: Due to their location, wisdom teeth are difficult to clean, which increases the risk of decay.
  • Common surgical procedure: Nearly 85% of people will need their wisdom teeth removed during their lifetime.

At Wy’East Dental, we offer comfortable and hassle-free wisdom tooth removal in Happy Valley. Schedule your consultation today! Call (503) 253-1344.

Benefits of removing wisdom teeth

Prevents Crowding
Removing wisdom teeth can prevent overcrowding of the teeth, which can lead to misalignment and orthodontic issues.

Prevents Impaction
Extraction reduces the risk of impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause pain, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth.

Prevents Infection
Removing wisdom teeth can lower the risk of infections, abscesses, and inflammation in the surrounding gum tissue.

Improves Oral Health
Extraction promotes overall oral health by eliminating potential sources of dental problems.

Removing your wisdom teeth can lead to a healthier, more comfortable mouth. If you’re experiencing issues with your wisdom teeth or want to learn more about the benefits of extraction, call us at (503) 253-1344 for expert advice and care.

Our Sedation Options

We understand that the extraction of wisdom teeth can be a source of anxiety for many patients. To ensure your comfort and ease during the procedure, we offer two primary types of sedation:

  • Oral Sedation: This involves taking a prescribed medication before your procedure. Oral sedation helps you feel relaxed and somewhat drowsy during the extraction, though you’ll remain awake and able to communicate.
  • Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is inhaled through a mask placed over your nose. It helps you relax, and its effects wear off quickly once the mask is removed, allowing you to drive yourself home after the procedure.

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities, and we’ll discuss these options with you in detail to choose the best one for your needs. Want to learn more about our sedation methods? Call us at (503) 433-8957 to schedule an appointment.

Answers to your questions about wisdom teeth

OR happy valley veneers wyeast dental

When should I get my wisdom teeth examined?

We recommend a wisdom teeth assessment in your late teens to early twenties, but evaluations can be made at any age if symptoms arise.

What does the extraction procedure involve?

The procedure typically includes an initial consultation, x-rays, and the surgical extraction itself. We offer oral and nitrous sedation to ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience.

How long is the recovery time?

Recovery time varies but usually involves a few days of rest and limited activity. You’ll receive personalized post-operative instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery.

Are there alternatives to extraction?

In some cases, wisdom teeth may not need to be removed if they are healthy, fully erupted, and properly aligned.

What are the risks of not removing problematic wisdom teeth?

Risks may include infection, cysts, and damage to adjacent teeth. It could also lead to more complicated and painful procedures later on.

We’ll be glad to answer them. Call us at (503) 253-1344.
