Woman smiling after getting her wisdom teeth out at Beaverton Oral Surgeons in Hillsboro, ORThe eruption of wisdom teeth can often pose an array of painful and uncomfortable issues for many individuals. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings with us are essential for helping to identify whether your wisdom teeth require extraction. At Beaverton Oral Surgeons Hillsboro, our team specializes in evaluating the necessity of wisdom teeth removal.

What Problems Can Wisdom Teeth Cause?

The presence of wisdom teeth can lead to various complications, including jawbone and teeth misalignment. Impacted wisdom teeth, in particular, may necessitate oral surgery due to the discomfort they can cause. Through routine dental examinations, our team can ascertain the appropriate timing for wisdom teeth extraction.

Failure to remove wisdom teeth can result in their eruption through the gums, potentially leading to infections and other dental complications. Additionally, the difficulty in accessing and cleaning these teeth in the back of the mouth can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

Understanding Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge during late adolescence or early adulthood. Misalignment of these molars, often appearing horizontally or angled towards existing molars, can lead to pain and discomfort, not to mention dental crowding and damage.

The eruption of wisdom teeth can induce general discomfort and pain in the oral cavity, creating openings prone to bacterial growth and infections. This eruption process may also cause swelling and stiffness in the jaw. Cleaning erupted wisdom teeth poses challenges due to their location at the back of the mouth.

Regular dental assessments conducted by our professionals at Beaverton Oral Surgeons Hillsboro facilitate the identification of wisdom teeth-related issues. X-ray evaluations enable us to anticipate potential jaw complications associated with these molars, allowing for informed discussions regarding the need for removal and extraction options.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure

The method of wisdom tooth removal depends on their positioning and eruption status. Surgically removing impacted wisdom teeth typically involves extracting portions of the jawbone. Our team provides comprehensive guidance on pre-surgery preparations and postoperative care to manage potential discomfort and complications associated with the procedure.

Erupted wisdom teeth can also be extracted similarly to other teeth, with our team ensuring thorough preparation and post-procedure support.

Following wisdom tooth extraction, patients may experience bleeding and swelling, for which our professionals will offer pain management strategies and postoperative instructions to aid in minimizing discomfort and preventing complications such as dry socket.
