Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Newburgh, IN

Safely and Comfortably Removing Wisdom Teeth

Around the ages of 17 to 25, the wisdom teeth attempt to erupt into the mouth. But because there usually isn’t enough space for them, there’s a very good chance that they’ll become trapped underneath the gums, causing pain and putting the other teeth at risk. At Newburgh General & Implant Dentistry, we make wisdom tooth removal as straightforward as comfortable as possible. Call us if someone in your family is around the age where they need to start thinking about their wisdom teeth.

When Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?

We only recommend having your wisdom teeth removed if they’re having a notable negative impact on your oral health. Signs that wisdom teeth may need to come out include persistent pain, repeated infection near the back of the mouth, the formation of cysts or tumors, damage to your nearby teeth, gum disease, and extensive tooth decay. Even if you’re not currently suffering from any symptoms, we may recommend taking your wisdom teeth out if it seems like they’ll cause problems.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Aftercare

We’ll give you personalized aftercare instructions after your extraction. Below are some general guidelines that most patients can expect:

  • Rest as much as possible for at least a few days and avoid strenuous exercise.
  • If there’s swelling, apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area.
  • Make sure that the surgical sites stay clean.
  • Do not swish, spit, or do anything else that might dislodge a blood clot and cause a dry socket.
  • Eat liquid foods and soft foods at first and slowly integrate other foods into your diet as you feel comfortable doing so.
