Wisdom Teeth Removal Experts

Our team at Bay Oral specializes in wisdom teeth removal.

Wisdom teeth offer up many complex and unique health and performance issues.  By talking directly to an expert, we can recommend a treatment plan and timeline to give patients the optimum results.

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to develop and appear in your mouth. The average mouth is made to hold only 28 teeth. These four extra teeth are your third molars. Early, preventative removal in teenage years is recommended to eliminate possible, future complications.

When should I have my wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth surgery is necessary when these teeth do not have room to properly erupt within the mouth.  This typically occurs between the ages of 17 & 25. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and even remain impacted and trapped beneath the gum and bone. When they are partially erupted, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and eventually causes an infection. The pressure from the erupting wisdom teeth may also move other teeth and disrupt their natural alignment. The most serious problem occurs when tumors or cysts form around the impacted wisdom teeth, resulting in damage to the jawbone and healthy teeth.

With an oral examination and x-rays, Bay Oral Surgery & Implant Center can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and catch potential problems. Studies have shown that early evaluation and treatment can prevent complications and decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure.

Do I need sedation or anesthesia?

In most cases, the removal of wisdom teeth is performed under local anesthesia or deep sedation. These options, as well as the surgical risks, will be discussed with you before the procedure is performed. Once your wisdom teeth have been removed, you will rest under our supervision in the office until you are ready to be taken home. Upon discharge, additional instructions for care at home will be given. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at (920) 499-0471.

What’s the cost of wisdom tooth extraction?

Wisdom tooth extraction costs vary depending on the number of teeth and their state of eruption. Given that every case is different, it’s difficult to quote a price without consulting one of Bay Oral Surgery’s expert oral surgeons first.

How is recovery after wisdom tooth surgery?

Pain, swelling and some bleeding is normal after wisdom teeth removal. Take it easy for a couple of days, avoid brushing near the healing area and eat what is comfortable, but softer foods are typically easier for the first few days. For more information, download BOS Home Care instructions. Keep in mind we are in the clinic Monday through Friday, along with an on-call doctor after hours to answer any questions.
