Wisdom teeth are the final two teeth that commonly develop during the late teen years of a patient's life. Located in the rear corners of both arches, wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, frequently don't have enough room to grow effectively. Because of this, wisdom teeth usually require removal to ensure overall oral health. Third molars might also be impacted (trapped beneath the gum tissues or bone) or misaligned, causing several dental concerns. Dr. Cassandra Montemayor offers wisdom teeth extractions for Schertz, TX patients to enhance oral health and protect against future dental problems. If you or someone in your family have aching or impacted wisdom teeth, schedule an exam at Savannah Smiles Dental to learn about your treatment options.

Wisdom teeth extractions in Schertz, TX at Savannah Smiles Dental provide both functional and aesthetic benefits, including:

  • Relieves pain and discomfort

  • Helps avoid damage to neighboring teeth
  • Minimizes risks for jaw issues, cysts, oral disease, tumors, and more
  • Offers sedation options to make the procedure more comfortable
  • Improves oral health

Are You a Candidate?

Generally, wisdom teeth removals are recommended for people who are between the ages of 17 – 25. Not all patients' wisdom teeth will automatically need removal; however, having impacted wisdom teeth in the mouth could cause further possible dental concerns in the future. Dr. Montemayor will generally suggest wisdom teeth removal for adults and teens with:

  • Gum irritation (pericoronitis), cheek puffiness, or TMJ aches
  • Improper space for effective molar eruption
  • Totally or partially impacted third molars within the gum tissues or jaw
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Any development of a cyst in the jaw
  • Decay on the wisdom teeth or patients who have difficulty keeping the wisdom teeth plaque-free

Savannah Smiles Dental performs wisdom teeth extractions while our patients are under local anesthesia, but this procedure can also be combined with oral-conscious or IV sedation techniques to increase comfort. Most cases of wisdom teeth removal call for a surgical technique, like when the teeth are impacted, have bent roots, or are strongly situated in the jaw. When Dr. Montemayor creates an incision in the gums to get to the tooth, she may split it into a few segments, which offers a streamlined removal. Depending on your unique situation, each of the wisdom teeth may be extracted during a single session. Sutures are usually applied afterward to protect the removal sites and encourage the healing process. You will then be given post-operative tips to follow over the next few days.

Are Extractions Covered by Insurance?

Advanced treatments, such as tooth extractions, might be completely or partly covered by various medical insurance plans. Despite this, sedation dentistry techniques may not be paid for. Our office coordinator will talk about your plan and estimate any anticipated personal costs beforethe day of your procedure. Savannah Smiles Dental accepts various kinds of financing and an expansive selection of payment solutions.

What is Recovery Like Following Oral Surgery?

Those who receive more advanced types oforal or IV sedation to calm them during their session will need to bring a dependable adult to drive them home. During the first days after the procedure, it's vital to restrict spitting, sipping using a straw, choosing hot or cold foods and liquids, and to completely stop smoking and using e-cigs. These activities will generally displace the scabbing in your extraction site and lead to a condition referred to as "dry socket." It is not abnormal to have cheek puffiness and discomfort after wisdom teeth removals, which may be diminished with prescription or drugstore pain medication and cool packs held against the jaw area. We will give you tips to enable you to care for your mouth during recovery and set up a check-in appointment to assess your extraction sites while they recover.

Dr. Cassandra Montemayor is thrilled to provide wisdom teeth extractions to ensure your family's long-term oral health. This effective oral procedure is performed for individuals in Schertz, TX and might be required if the tooth cannot come in evenly or other problems are detected.
