Having your wisdom teeth removed may sound intimidating, but if you have a compassionate and experienced dentist, it is easy and nearly pain-free! If you have impacted wisdom teeth, it is critical to have them removed as soon as possible to prevent further dental issues. Our experienced dentist offers wisdom teeth & extractions near Carson City, NV, for your dental health.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are molars in the very back of your mouth that erupt later in life, usually in your late teens and early twenties. There is a chance that they grow in normally, but many people have issues with impaction, where the teeth grow in horizontally. Impacted wisdom teeth push the other teeth forward and can cause dental problems.

How Do I Know if I Need My Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

If you have pain in the back of your mouth that you think may be caused by wisdom teeth eruption, it is crucial to make an appointment with our dentist. Dr. Atencio can take x-rays to determine if your wisdom teeth are growing in straight or if they are impacted. If they’re impacted, it’s important to get them removed as soon as possible to avoid misaligned teeth and infection.

If you have any of the following symptoms, it may be caused by your wisdom teeth:

  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw tenderness
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bad breath
  • Bad taste when biting down on food

Contact your dentist if you have any of these problems. You can have your extraction done with or without being sedated. Generally, sedation is used if your wisdom teeth are impacted but haven’t erupted yet, as this makes the procedure more painful. Our dentist will determine the best method for extraction at your initial consultation.

After Extraction

Following the extraction of your wisdom teeth, our dentist will advise you to eat soft foods and avoid using straws and smoking. You can use ibuprofen or other painkillers to reduce any pain that you experience. Your gums should be healed in about two weeks if there are no complications.

Had a recent visit to Atencio Dentistry as a new patient; staff was wonderful and accommodating to my disability needs from appointment scheduling to cleaning. My hygienist was very gentle. Dr. Atencio was present to review my dental X-rays and properly evaluated what needed to be done. Needed referral for evaluation for my jaw discomfort. Will be back to get what needs to be done and for my next cleaning.

Dr. Atencio and his staff are so friendly, kind, gentle and professional! I had a tooth pulled today, and everyone was awesome. Dr. Atencio was amazing and when he was done I was shocked that the tooth had been pulled. I highly recommend Dr. Atencio for any of your dental needs!

I like Karian, my new hygienist. She is personable, professional, knows her craft and made me feel comfortable and at ease. A very nice addition to Atencio's team. I also love the new air filtering equipment that has been added in each hygienist work station. An extra measure of precaution during this pandemic.
Nice to see a profession that is so proactive and protective during these challenging times
