The Challenges of Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically emerge between the ages of twelve and early twenties. While they’re often seen as a rite of passage into adulthood, their growth can pose various challenges:

  • Infection
  • Cysts
  • Teeth Crowding
  • Impact on Adjacent Teeth

Given these potential issues, it’s advised to have wisdom teeth assessed between the ages of 12-15.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure

While the mere thought of extraction can be daunting, the procedure itself is straightforward. The steps involved include:

  • Evaluation: An oral examination allows us to check the position of the teeth and assess any immediate concerns.
  • Anesthesia: To ensure a pain-free experience, local anesthesia or sedation is administered. At Kane and Kerper Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Oxnard, we prioritize your comfort and safety.
  • The Procedure: Typically lasting 30 to 90 minutes, extraction is done by trained professionals using sterilized equipment.

Post-extraction, patients might experience drowsiness or sleepiness. As such, it’s crucial to have someone to drive you home.
