Are You Experiencing Tooth Pain?

Get a Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Evanston, IL

What Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to develop and emerge into the mouth. They are the furthest back in the mouth and come in behind the second molars between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to become impacted near Evanston, IL. An impacted wisdom tooth is unable to fully enter the mouth due to insufficient room on the jawline. If left in the mouth, an impacted wisdom tooth can cause unnecessary damage and may cause teeth movement. The pressure caused by the wisdom teeth can also cause more severe issues such as cavities or bone resorption in neighboring teeth. If an infected wisdom tooth is not removed, it may generate a fluid-filled cyst, destroying the jawbone and damaging the surrounding nerves and teeth.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Evanston, IL

Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

If you are experiencing pain, swelling, or severe gum sensitivity near Evanston, IL in the back of your mouth, this may be a sign that your wisdom teeth need to be removed. Although wisdom teeth can remain healthy, they may become impacted if there is not sufficient room on your jawline for them to grow. Dr. Amarante at Way Dental may recommend an extraction if your wisdom teeth have become impacted and are causing discomfort or damage to the surrounding teeth.

How Does the Procedure Work?

When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Amarante, an oral exam and x-rays in Evanston, IL will help your doctor determine whether your wisdom teeth are at risk for infection and require removal. During the procedure, the affected area will be numbed with a local anesthetic for your comfort in Evanston, IL. Depending on your situation, Dr. Amarante might consider additional nitrous oxide (laughing gas) so that you can relax without fear or discomfort. After surgery, you will need a few days of recovery and may have eating restrictions while your mouth heals. Dr. Amarante will prescribe painkillers as needed to help you heal more comfortably.

“My first visit to Way Dental was back in November. I had a wisdom tooth with the biggest cavity and it needed to come out. When you walk into the office, it smells like my house after a day of cleaning and febreeze plug-ins. The staff is also extremely nice.”

“Came in today for a wisdom tooth extraction…best place ever! I’ve been trying to get my teeth out for months and couldn’t find a place I felt comfortable and welcome and not just another patient coming in and out. Dr. Andre was fantastic and explained everything that would happen and made sure to ask if I had any questions during the whole process. ”

“I needed wisdom teeth extraction that I’ve been avoiding due to fear. I called up my regular dentist and he told me that he would recommend Dr. A %100. I got them done and Im so glad I did. The surgery went very smoothly. I had no pain just a little bit sore. The office called me up the next day to check on me and ask if I'm following their post-op and taking the necessary medications. What a great experience. Thank you Way Dental and Dr. Amarante.”
