When is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?
Not every patient with wisdom teeth needs to always have them removed. In fact, we typically only suggest this procedure if there’s not enough room in the mouth for them to safely grow in, or they become impacted below the surface of the gums. These issues can result in a higher risk of cysts, cavities and gum disease caused by misalignment, and oral infections. During your consultation, Dr. Sharolli will discuss your X-rays with you and whether he suggests having them removed or not.

It’s also important to leave the dressing on the extraction site for 30 minutes to an hour after you leave the dental office to ensure that a blood clot has formed. You’ll also need to keep up with your oral hygiene after your extraction and rinse with warm saltwater two to three times a day.
