What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Top Oral Surgeon for Wisdom Teeth Removal in Scottsdale Arizona

Wisdom teeth are regular teeth that typically grow in early adulthood also referred to as third molars. They are located in the back of the mouth on the upper and lower jaw. They are referred to as wisdom teeth because they develop later in life, usually between 15-18 years. Since adult teeth are already grown in, there is usually little space for wisdom teeth coming in so they don’t always develop normally. Over time, our jaws have evolved to become smaller and most mouths cannot accommodate wisdom teeth. This overcrowding can cause bone loss and severe pain among other problems. Wisdom teeth are also hard to reach and keep clean given their location. If you have never been evaluated for wisdom teeth or are in pain because of wisdom teeth, contact our office today for a complimentary consultation!

Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom Tooth Removal By A Board Certified Oral Surgeon

Since most mouths do not have enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in completely, they often become symptomatic. Wisdom teeth pain is the most common complaint which can be caused by a variety of reasons.

Wisdom teeth can be fully or partially impacted, or stuck under the gum, in various ways. This causes the gum around them to get inflamed and causes bone loss of the adjacent teeth. 

When the gum is inflamed, it allows the bacteria to grow and can result in an infection. In certain situations, the wisdom teeth can also develop cysts around them which can cause destruction of the jaw bone and adjacent teeth structure.

Why Choose an Oral Surgeon Over a General Practitioner for Wisdom Teeth Removal?

After dental school, an oral surgeon has an additional four to six years in residency where they train specifically for surgery. While in residency they do hundreds of wisdom teeth removal surgeries.

A general practitioner may do one wisdom tooth extraction every couple of weeks, whereas an oral surgeon will do four to six daily. Both are qualified for wisdom tooth removal surgery but an oral surgeon has more training and experience. Our resident oral surgeon, Dr. Amogh Velangi, has completed over 10k successful cases of wisdom teeth removal, so you know you're in the best care in Scottsdale Arizona.

Dr. Velangi did my wisdom tooth surgery. My case was complicated as two of my wisdom teeth were impacted and infected. Dr Velangi did a fantastic job. I had minimal swelling and pain considering how complicated my procedure was. By the end of the week, I was able to return to work. Highly recommend Dr. Velangi for any dental surgery.

What age do wisdom teeth come in?

Wisdom teeth start developing around 11-13, 15-19 years of age. This is the ideal time for wisdom teeth removal because the bone is not as dense, there's less risk of complications, and recovery time is faster.

Is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth?

Anyone who hasn’t had their wisdom teeth removed needs to have an evaluation. Sometimes no pain doesn’t mean any problems.

Wisdom teeth have the highest chance of plaque accumulation, gum inflammation, cavity, and cyst formation. Have a dental professional evaluate them as soon as possible.

How long is wisdom teeth extraction recovery time?

If post-operation instructions are followed, most patients are over the worst phase after 3-5 days. The level of post-operation swelling varies from person to person. Placing ice on your face can limit the amount of swelling.

Light bleeding is normal for 24-48 hours after the procedure. We recommend placing a covering over your pillow to avoid getting blood on it. 

How to prevent an infection after wisdom teeth removal?

Strictly follow post-operation instructions. Get plenty of rest.

Can wisdom teeth cause ear pain?

Yes. When the tooth has difficulty erupting from the gum, it can cause swelling and inflammation in the jaw which can spread to the ear.

What is an impacted wisdom tooth?

An impacted wisdom tooth means there is no room in the jaw for teeth to come in straight which causes a buildup of pressure. The tooth may partially show through the top but the rest of the tooth can be impacting the jaw bone or neighboring teeth.
