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.

I was nervous to see a new doctor especially since I didn’t have the best experience at my last place but was surprised Everyone was very friendly and efficient. I felt comfortable and well taken care of. They took the time to explain what they were going to do and not get you in and rush you out. Very nice.
