Wisdom Tooth Extractions – Bedford, VA

Comfortably Removing Third-Molars

Wisdom teeth (also known as third molars) are late arrivals in a person’s permanent smile, not fully erupting until they’re in their late teens or early adult years. Sadly, the lack of space left in the mouth for them means that impaction, infection, and discomfort are very real and common risks when this occurs. Our doctors want to prevent this for patients, which is why we’ll carefully monitor your smile and keep an eye on wisdom teeth during routine appointments with the help of digital X-rays. If we determine that problems are likely, we perform wisdom tooth extractions at our Bedford, VA dental office as a preventive measure that preserves overall health and overall wellbeing.

When is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?

Some people keep their wisdom teeth for their entire lives. An extraction is only necessary if your extra teeth come in in a way that causes problems. For example:

  • Your wisdom teeth may remain completely hidden beneath the gums, becoming impacted in your jaw and causing various painful symptoms.
  • Your wisdom teeth may only emerge partially through the gums, making them hard to clean properly and raising the risk of an oral infection.
  • Your wisdom teeth may crowd your other teeth, damaging them.

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation for
Wisdom Teeth

Dr. Wolf or Dr. Owen will your medical history and recommend oral conscious sedation for wisdom teeth removal. You will take one pill the night before and one pill before arriving at the dental office on the day of your treatment. You may also need additional medication depending on the type of procedures performed and the duration of the appointment. The best part is that, due to the amnesic properties of the medications, you will have little-to-no memory of your time in the dental chair by the next day.
