Wisdom Teeth Removal

At Little Family Dentistry in Bayonne, New Jersey, we highly recommend wisdom teeth be removed, if possible, during the patient’s mid-to-late teens and before they erupt from the gums. Our staff’s priority is our patient’s safety and comfort during this procedure.

Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars, typically appearing between 17 and 25 years of age. There are many common problems that can necessitate their removal including not having enough room for them to grow in properly; impaction; infection or they can emerge from the gum sideways. Whatever the reason, when left untreated, they can cause complications to the surrounding teeth and overall health. The early removal of wisdom tooth will prevent problems later on.

The Procedure

At Little Family Dentistry, this surgical procedure is performed in our office on a regular basis. On your first visit, the doctor will begin by discussing the treatment and answer any questions you may have. The doctor will also discuss the anesthetic options available to you in advance of the surgery, to allowing you to choose which form of sedation you prefer. After a complete oral exam, x-rays are taken to determine the size and position of the tooth/teeth being extracted. On your second visit, the doctor will administer the anesthetic. If the teeth are partially or entirely submerged under the gums, the doctor will need to raise the gum tissue to get the tooth. In some cases, the doctor may have to break the tooth into smaller pieces for an easier removal. When the wisdom tooth is removed, the surgeon will suture the socket and keep you in the office until the anesthetic wears off. The staff will provide you with instructions on how to control the bleeding, keep your surgical site clean, prescribe pain medication, and an antibiotic if the tooth was infected.

Our skilled surgeon and highly trained office staff will answer any questions you may have regarding wisdom teeth removal. Call Little Family Dentistry for an appointment today at (201) 273-9233.

Our Happy Patients

"Highly Recommend Dr. Little - When Dr. Aurori retired, (He was my dentist since the early 90s) I figured it was time to find a dentist closer to home. I wasn't able to find a practice to trust, and I figured I would try Dr. Little. I am very happy that I did. Dr. Little and her staff have made visiting the office a warm and vibrant experience. I do not mind having to travel an hour to see her. It's well worth it. She is knowledgeable, gentle, and clearly, loves what she does. I Highly recommend her."
