Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to erupt, usually doing so in the late teens or early twenties. these are the third set of molars and are located on each side of the upper and lower jaws. Wisdom teeth becomes problematic when they are impacted, misaligned, causes crowding, or there is simply not enough room for them to grow in. When this happens, wisdom tooth extraction becomes necessary.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that is usually done by your dentist or an oral surgeon. Depending on the complexity of the extraction(s) three types of anesthesia may be used:

  • Local anesthesia - you are awake during the procedure
  • Sedation anesthesia - you are in a state of sleep, but can still be stimulated by touch or sound
  • General anesthesia – you lose consciousness

Recovery time from oral surgery depends on the type of anesthesia used. You will receive a list of instructions regarding your oral care.

"I am looking forward to my next dental appointment!!!My fears are completely gone. For many years I have avoided going to the dentist because of painful past experiences. I was so ashamed of the way my smile looked that I stayed away from cameras and would not speak in public. I have a completely new attitude thanks to Dr. Kelly and his amazing staff.
The moment I walked into the door for the first time I was greeted with caring people who put me at ease. Dr. Kelly listened to my fears on every level. He understood all of my concerns, including the financial end and has worked with me to provide a long term plan that will provide me the ability to have a wonderful smile,better health and confidence, and peace of mind.
I highly recommend anyone who has ever felt their case was hopeless to make an appointment now. Dr. Kelly and everyone on his staff are wonderful and friendly and now I can SMILE! "
