Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth Removal Services

Over the past several thousand years, the human jaw has considerably decreased in size, while the teeth have remained roughly the same. Due to this little glitch, a great number of people have no room in their mouths for the very last molar that erupts in puberty, called the ‘wisdom tooth.’

Most people will have their first wisdom teeth erupt when they reach ages 16 to 24. If there is inadequate room for a wisdom tooth to grow properly into the mouth, one of several things could happen. The wisdom tooth may remain impacted, meaning it resides dormant in the bone, where it could remain without causing trouble, or it may develop into a cyst or infection. If it erupts, it may push on the molar in front of it as it erupts, causing root resorption and the loss of the molar it grows into. It can decay adjacent teeth, cause rotations and tipping of adjacent teeth, and erupt in an uncomfortable position affecting biting. It may also only be able to “peek out” of the gum, because there is no further room for it, which means it becomes both impossible to keep clean, since a toothbrush can’t reach under the gum, and impossible to keep sterile, as it is already exposed to oral bacteria. In this case, an infection is very likely.

In some patients, wisdom teeth are missing entirely, and those lucky people never have to worry about them! For the rest, Smiles on Queen Dentistry has experienced dentists in wisdom teeth removal. We offer a safe, comfortable and smooth tooth extraction procedure. We know that many may fear to have their wisdom teeth removed, and we do our very best to allay your fears and keep you comfortable.

What to expect during wisdom tooth removal

First, our dentist will perform an initial consultation where he/she sits down with the patient to better understand their condition and concerns. In this case, an initial evaluation will be done to determine the reasons for removing the wisdom tooth before taking the right course of action. The patient will then be prepared for the extraction procedure.

During the extraction, an anesthesia is applied on the area to make the procedure pain free and comfortable. Once the area is completely numb, the tooth is removed, and resorbable sutures may be placed at the site of the extraction.

After the procedure, it is common for mild bleeding and swelling to occur. The dentist will apply gauze on the empty socket and you can use ice on the outside area to reduce swelling. You will also be advised to avoid eating hard foods and engaging in heavy physical activity, so plan accordingly! A diet that is comprised of soft foods and cold liquids is often recommended.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
