Wisdom Teeth RemovalThe truth is, there is no perfect or ideal age at which our doctors recommend you have your wisdom teeth removed. This is largely based on the sheer fact that everyone is different, everyone develops differently, and everyone’s mouths are built differently. However, the younger you are when you have your wisdom teeth removed, the better. When you’re young, your jawbone is softer; therefore, the removal of your wisdom teeth is easier, and the healing process goes much quicker.
Sedation Makes Patients Comfortable During the Wisdom Tooth Removal ProcessNo matter how old you are when you have your wisdom teeth removed, rest assured our doctors will provide excellent care and a comfortable experience by using sedation dentistry for all wisdom teeth removal procedures. Most patients receive sedation dentistry in the form of local anesthesia, laughing gas, or general anesthesia. By providing their patients with these sedation dentistry options, our doctors are able to ensure your safety and comfort during your entire procedure. Your overall health and wellbeing are of the utmost importance to our doctors, so when you visit our office for your consultation, be sure to fully detail your entire medical history with your doctor. This information is key in providing the correct form of sedation dentistry for your particular needs.
