Why Would I Need a Wisdom Tooth Removed?

Your Mission Hills dentist will recommend wisdom tooth removal if your wisdom teeth are causing persistent pain and discomfort due to teeth being impacted or grown in at an odd angle. Wisdom tooth removal is also recommended for teeth affected by cavities or periodontal (gum) disease.

Will Wisdom Tooth Removal Hurt?

Due to the latest advancements in modern dental technology, wisdom tooth removal pains are a thing of the past. With proper anesthesia, your Mission Hills dentist can ensure you remain comfortable during treatment. At most, you should only feel slight pressure/pushing but not pain. If you do feel any sort of “sharpness”, or even the slightest bit of pain, let your Mission Hills dentist know that you do not yet feel fully numb.

 

If you worry about the pain of receiving traditional anesthesia administered by syringe, ask your Mission Hills dentist about The Wand® Anesthesia option. This new FDA-approved method allows you less anxiety, less pain, and less face numbness post-treatment.
