Expert Wisdom Teeth Extractions at Ballantyne Family Dental

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of teeth to emerge, often leading to complications such as impaction, infection, and discomfort. At Ballantyne Family Dental in Charlotte, NC, we specialize in wisdom teeth extractions to protect your oral health and alleviate pain associated with impacted wisdom teeth.

Understanding Wisdom Teeth Extractions

The Need for Extraction

Wisdom teeth extractions are often necessary when these third molars do not have enough space to properly emerge, becoming impacted. This impaction can lead to pain, infection, and potential damage to adjacent teeth. Removing wisdom teeth early can prevent these complications, ensuring a healthier oral environment.

Recognizing the Signs

Knowing when you might need wisdom teeth extractions involves being aware of symptoms that indicate complications:

  • Pain and soreness around the back of the mouth
  • Tenderness and swelling
  • Bad breath indicating infection
  • Visible damage to adjacent teeth
  • Headaches stemming from pressure caused by impaction

Our team at Ballantyne Family Dental will conduct a thorough examination and utilize x-rays to determine if your wisdom teeth are causing problems and if extraction is the best course of action.

The Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure

Sedation and Comfort

To ensure your comfort during the extraction, we offer sedation options that allow you to remain relaxed and pain-free. Our skilled dental team will make small incisions in the gum to remove the impacted or problematic wisdom teeth, carefully extracting each tooth to minimize discomfort and promote a swift recovery.

Aftercare and Recovery

Following the extraction, you'll receive detailed aftercare instructions to support the healing process. While soreness and inflammation are normal in the days following the procedure, these symptoms typically subside within one to two weeks. Our team is available to address any post-operative concerns or complications, ensuring a smooth and comfortable recovery.
