Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom tooth extraction may be the best course of action in dental cases where infection, inflammation, pain or crowding is present.

Why Do I Need Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Wisdom teeth are the upper and lower third molars at the back of your mouth. Some people can live with these teeth in their mouths without any issues and will maintain positive oral health. Unfortunately, others may experience a variety of issues when their wisdom teeth come in, resulting in the need for removal.

Often, wisdom teeth that erupt can grow in at various angles, sometimes horizontally and lead to a myriad of more serious dental problems.

It is usually recommended that a dentist look at your wisdom teeth when you are between ages 16 and 19 because that is when the teeth begin to grow. Even if there is no pain when these teeth appear, there are other issues they can create in the mouth.

Wisdom teeth can cause damage to other teeth as they grow, cause gums to become inflamed or infected, and will damage your jaw if they develop cysts or tumors. For those who have existing dental issues or crowns placed in the mouth, the growth of wisdom teeth can worsen a condition and ruin orthodontic treatment.

The team of dentists at Smilovits DDS understand that removing wisdom teeth in a timely manner is crucial to maintaining oral health. While patients can have these teeth removed at any time, the younger the patient, the easier the surgery. We are available to meet with all ages of patients on a one-to-one basis to give you our full attention. We will ensure you understand the growth of your teeth and determine if removal is the best option for you.

How to Find a Great Dentist for Tooth Removal

A dentist should outline the dental procedure before it takes place and have a proper post-surgery treatment plan prepared for every patient.

A tooth extraction is a serious procedure and you will want a certified and experienced dentist performing your wisdom tooth removal. Research your dentist before choosing a practice and ask any questions you may have about the procedure beforehand.

Smilovits DDS is always ready to discuss a procedure with you and will not begin treatment until every patient sees a written and mutually agreed-upon treatment plan. Your dentist should be able to outline the exact problem you are facing and why your wisdom teeth need to be removed. Every case is different and not all of your wisdom teeth may have to come out.

Our trained dentists will give you a second opinion if you have been told that all your teeth must be pulled out. We will not complete an oral surgery unless we decide that it is the best possible option. Another factor to consider when choosing a dentist for wisdom tooth removal is the cost.

In many cases insurance can help cover much of the cost. Call Smilovits DDS to see what insurance providers we regularly work with. After any type of tooth removal, it is important to rest and follow the orders from your dentist as far as cleaning and oral care. Your dentist should have a care plan for you after removing your teeth and be available if anything should happen post-surgery.

I've had nothing but positive experiences at Dr. Smilovits' office. The business hours are convenient and appointments flexible. And the procedures are prompt and pain-free.

- Steve Beakes

Just went to Peter Smilovits' office and I had the best experience!! Like most people, I hate going to the dentist and have terrible anxiety when it comes to getting work done. I told the hygienist, Danny, how nervous I was and he was amazing with my cleaning! He explained everything during the process and was just so sweet and the Dr. also came in just to check on me and make sure I was doing okay.

This was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist! I fully trust these people with my teeth and can’t wait to go back. 10/10 would recommend!!

Dr. Smilovits and his staff offer excellent service at a very fair price. I have never needed the rescue squad after I got my bill. His years of experience are evident as soon as you see how thorough and painless his service is.

His staff is very efficient as well and everyone is very nice and makes you feel welcome and appreciated. Thanks to all for a great experience.

Going to the Dentist always makes me nervous.  Today I went to Dr. Smilovits; he talked with me about options for my teeth while making me feel comfortable.  He even told jokes to lighten the mood.  

Anna did an amazing job on my teeth and now I simply cannot stop smiling! I am 100% satisfied with the entire experience and had multiple people already asking who I went to after seeing my results

Dr. Smilovits and his entire staff were very kind and accommodating.  He did an excellent job of explaining and fixing the problem I was having and at a great price.
