At Serenity Smiles Dental Care in Murfreesboro, TN, we specialize in the safe and comfortable removal of wisdom teeth. Our experienced team understands the concerns and questions that come with the decision to have wisdom teeth extracted, and we're here to provide the care and support you need throughout the process.

Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop and emerge in the mouth. While some people never experience problems with their wisdom teeth, many others find that these teeth can lead to complications such as impaction, overcrowding, infection, and pain. Removing problematic wisdom teeth can prevent these issues and contribute to a healthier mouth and overall well-being.

Signs You May Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

You might need your wisdom teeth removed if you experience:

  • Persistent pain and swelling near the back of your mouth
  • Difficulty opening your jaw or biting comfortably
  • Gum inflammation or infection around the wisdom teeth
  • Cysts or tumors developing around impacted wisdom teeth

The Wisdom Teeth Removal Process

Our wisdom teeth removal process begins with a thorough consultation and examination, often including X-rays to assess the position and condition of your wisdom teeth. This allows us to plan the most effective and least invasive removal strategy.

Sedation Dentistry for Comfortable Extractions

We understand that the idea of tooth extraction can cause anxiety. That's why we offer sedation dentistry options to ensure a comfortable, pain-free experience. From nitrous oxide to oral sedation during your routine appointments, to general anesthesia for your extraction appointment, we tailor the sedation method to suit your needs and preferences.

What to Expect After Wisdom Teeth Removal

After your wisdom teeth are removed, you can expect a recovery period typically lasting a few days to a week. We'll provide detailed post-operative care instructions to help manage swelling, pain, and ensure a smooth healing process. Key advice includes eating soft foods, avoiding strenuous activity, and maintaining oral hygiene in a way that protects the extraction sites.
