The wisdom teeth are the third set of molars at the back of the mouth. Their removal has become a rite of passage for many young adults. Indeed, is it often necessary in order to prevent long-term oral health problems because for most people, their mouths are too small to accommodate the wisdom teeth. Here at All Dental, we extract these teeth as gently and precisely as possible. This page explains more about what is involved in wisdom tooth extractions at our Westborough, MA dental office.
After we make sure that you are comfortable (with the help of anesthesia and possibly sedation), we will access the wisdom teeth. Doing may require us to make an incision in the gums. Then, we remove the teeth as gently as possible and close the incision. We will give you detailed postoperative instructions in order to minimize your risk of complications. Most people are able to resume their normal routine within a week of their surgery.
