Why Do Wisdom Teeth Have to be Removed?

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to develop, which means their location towards the back of the mouth makes them especially hard to reach or clean. In some cases, they can become impacted within the jaw or only erupt partially, making them prone to infection.

When decay or gum disease develop, the adjacent teeth suffer as well. Wisdom teeth removal in Miami, FL may be an essential step to ensuring the best overall health for the rest of your smile.

How to Know if Your Wisdom Teeth Need to be Taken Out

During your exam, Ramon Bona, DDS will order a panoramic X-ray to evaluate the size, positioning, and development of your wisdom teeth. Some of the things we look for before suggesting wisdom teeth removal in Miami, FL include:

  • Cysts
  • Infection
  • Periodontal disease
  • Active decay
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Partial eruption
  • Pressure on adjacent teeth

After Your Surgery

Plan to stick to a soft diet for several days. Do not plan to work or drive right away, as some people need a long weekend or up to a full week or more to recover. Dr. Bana will provide you with written home care instructions so that you know what to expect leading up to and following the procedure.

Sedation During Wisdom Teeth Removal in Miami, FL

As a licensed sedation dentist, Dr. Bana provides comfortable and safe comfort options during oral surgeries such as dental extractions. Because you’ll feel drowsy for several hours, you’ll need to have a family member or friend accompany you to and from the visit.
