Wisdom Tooth Extractions - Argyle, TX
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Surgical Expertise Matters
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that emerge, usually during your late teens to early 20s. Notorious for not erupting when and as they should, wisdom teeth frequently become impacted. Even if you can’t see your wisdom teeth through your gums, that doesn’t mean they’re not doing harm below the surface. Wisdom teeth can sometimes grow at an angle, harm neighboring molars, or cause structural damage to the jaw. This area may also develop a cyst or infection that harms your bone, gum tissue, and teeth. It’s important to watch for the signs of impacted wisdom teeth and receive an evaluation from an oral and maxillofacial surgeon if symptoms arise.
Oral surgeons are the experts in wisdom tooth removal. They are trained in surgical tooth extractions and qualified to offer complex facial trauma treatments, jaw surgery, and facial reconstructions. As a result, they are the go-to specialists for wisdom teeth extractions from the simple to the complex and frequently perform them weekly, if not daily. Suppose you or your teen is experiencing pain, swelling, or swollen gums around the molars. In that case, we encourage you to reserve an evaluation of your wisdom teeth in Argyle, TX, at Argyle Advanced Dental Care with our experienced oral surgeon.

Our Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process
We understand that wisdom teeth extractions, or 3rd molars, can be the first surgery our patients ever receive. As a result, we do everything possible to make you feel at ease, from a welcoming and friendly environment to calming anesthesia services. Before we determine if your wisdom teeth need removal, we capture precise, 3D scans of your mouth to assess the location and angle of your wisdom teeth. Using this imaging, we precisely plan your treatment to be efficient and minimally invasive on the day of surgery.
Before surgery, we’ll provide one or a combination of anesthesia services to ensure you’re relaxed and pain-free throughout your stay. You’ll be able to return home the same day and typically only need over-the-counter medication to control swelling or discomfort during your recovery. We’ll review post-operative instructions with you and encourage you to follow them closely for a shortened recovery time. If you have any questions as you heal, please contact our surgical team in Argyle, TX, for the necessary answers. With specialized surgical and medical training, oral surgeons offer worry-free and confident care for any wisdom tooth extraction. Find out if it’s time for yours.
