Wisdom Teeth Removal/Oral Surgery

Wisdom Teeth Removal & Oral Surgery

Proven Care from Dedicated Albuquerque Family Dentists

You probably know someone who has had at least one wisdom tooth removed. These molars (called wisdom teeth or third molars) are in the very back of our mouths and are the last adult teeth to erupt. Our mouths commonly have insufficient room for them, which means painful symptoms can develop and extraction is likely necessary.

Tooth extraction may sound scary but for our experienced Albuquerque dentists, it's a routine procedure patients can feel confident about. If you are experiencing impacted wisdom tooth symptoms – which can range from simple discomfort to decay in the adjacent tooth – Dental House is ready to hear from you. Our office is ready to assess your wisdom teeth and recommend the best course of action.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth (or third molars) are the final adult molars to erupt at the very back of our mouths, usually in our late teens to mid-twenties. Since it is common for our mouths not to have room for these teeth, they can remain impacted (embedded in our gums and/or pressing against the second molar). When this occurs, patients can start to experience symptoms.

Common impacted wisdom tooth symptoms include:

  • Pain (gums, jaw, etc.)
  • Bleeding gums
  • Swelling around the jaw
  • Headaches
  • Bad breath

    In some cases, patients may not be experiencing symptoms but can start to feel their wisdom teeth protruding from their gums at the back of their mouth. All of these are signs that it's time to have a conversation with your dentist about your wisdom teeth. Left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to gum disease, unwanted movement in your other teeth, and worsening symptoms.

    Other Oral Surgical Procedures

    Wisdom tooth removal is a common form of oral surgery and while many general dentists do not perform third molar extractions, at Dental House, we do. Our experienced dentists stay at the forefront of dental medicine and are capable of performing an array of different procedures to meet the needs of our patients. While some cases may need to be sent out to specialists, most surgical procedures are done in-house, keeping our patients in a familiar, comfortable environment.

    Dental House can also assist you with:

    • Dental implants
    • Full-mouth restorations
    • All-on-four prostheses
    • Etc.

      If you believe you require an oral surgery procedure or would like to have a second opinion on a surgical procedure that has been treatment planned for you, call us at Dental House today. We're ready to help you explore your dental health options and pursue the treatments you and your family need to enjoy lasting oral health.

      Come as Patients, Leave as Family—that's our Dental House motto. Call us today at (505) 835-2322 today to book an appointment or consultation. Saturday appointments are available.
