Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Norton, MA

Safely Removing Unnecessary Teeth

The wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to emerge in the back corners of the mouth. By the time they erupt (usually in early adulthood), they cause problems for most people, such as crowding, unbalanced bites, pain, and an increased infection risk. If you or someone you love is experiencing wisdom tooth pain, please call our team at Norton Family Dentistry. We offer safe, comfortable wisdom tooth extractions to give you a pain-free and healthy smile.

When Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?

Some people never experience issues with their wisdom teeth, but more often than not, the mouth isn’t large enough to accommodate these extra molars. As a result, the wisdom teeth might push against the other teeth, causing pain and misalignment. They may also become stuck, or impacted, under the gumline, where they could harbor bacteria. For these reasons, we typically recommend extracting the wisdom teeth before they cause serious complications.

 

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Aftercare

Recovering from wisdom tooth extractions should take three to seven days in most cases, but the exact timeframe depends on the patient. Following your procedure, we’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions that may include:

 

  • Take any medication you’ve been prescribed, such as pain relievers and antibiotics, as directed.
  • Eat only soft foods for at least three days.
  • Avoid smoking, drinking through a straw, or blowing your nose.
  • Get plenty of rest and stay hydrated with water.
