Wisdom Teeth Removal
Only 2% of adults at retirement age have a healthy wisdom tooth that has not been affected by disease. In addition, waiting for pain or other issues to set in may leave you with permanent or serious dental disease.
Not everyone needs his/her wisdom teeth removed. Removal may not be recommended for patients who have adequate space in their mouth for teeth to erupt properly and allow access for cleaning. In general, surgical risks increase with age. Your oral surgeon may recommend scheduled periodic clinical and radiographic examinations if the risks of removing the wisdom teeth outweigh the risks of monitoring.
WHEN SHOULD WISDOM TEETH BE REMOVED?There is "no one answer" to the correct age of having wisdom teeth removed, as everyone's situation is different. In general, patients without symptoms should be screened by their dentist between the ages of 17 to 21 to discuss the risks of developing disease and to consider wisdom tooth removal. Studies have shown that having wisdom teeth removed prior to your mid-20's helps ensure complete healing and a smooth recovery. Anyone experiencing pain or swelling should be seen immediately for consultation. Only a consultation with your oral surgeon can determine if the timing is right for you.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY WISDOM TOOTH CONSULTATION?At Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, we specialize in the removal of wisdom teeth. We will provide you with an accurate review of your condition and an evidence-based discussion of whether wisdom teeth removal is right for you. We will determine the complexity of your case, take into account your needs, and work with you to develop an anesthesia plan to ensure your comfort. Our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons have advanced training in sedation and anesthesia. We will ensure that your experience will be comfortable and safe.
Tooth extractions are a common procedure performed in our office. Typically tooth extractions can be performed using local anesthesia. For patients who have complex cases, IV anesthesia/sedation can be used.

These changes can be detected on the lips, cheeks, palate, and gum tissue, tongue, face, and/or neck. Any signs mentioned above that are found in your mouth should be brought to the attention of your dentist or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. If appropriate, biopsy (tissue sample) may be performed to help diagnose your condition and plan any treatment you might need. This allows for early diagnosis of any concerns that are developing in your mouth. The doctors of Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants are highly experienced to evaluate and treat these lesions within your mouth and jaw.
