Do Wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Unless your wisdom teeth are healthy and fully functional, we strongly recommend removing them. Wisdom teeth can have a dramatic impact on your oral health. Infections, cavities, and damage to adjacent teeth are all consequences of leaving your wisdom teeth in place indefinitely.
Is wisdom teeth removal considered surgery?
It is, and it is affectionately called oral surgery. Wisdom teeth removal is considered a minor surgery. Fortunately, at the Wisdom Teeth Factory, we have developed minimally invasive techniques that make your recovery process a lot faster. For the majority of our patients, the recovery process is a breeze with minimal swelling and irritation after the procedure.
What can one expect after wisdom teeth removal surgery?
There are a few symptoms that can arise after wisdom teeth removal. Swelling, Bruising, Pain, Bleeding, Trismus (difficulty opening your mouth), Numbness (rare, but seen after wisdom teeth extractions) are all possible symptoms following wisdom teeth removal.

No it cannot. TMJ is a joint condition where your jaw is affected. Wisdom teeth inside of your jawbone do not have any correlation with the onset of TMJ.
Can wisdom teeth removal cause ear aches or ear problems?
This is normally not a common symptom that is seen after wisdom teeth removal. If after the procedure your ears begin to hurt, it is a good idea to see your family doctor to make sure the pain is not originating within the ear canal itself.
Can Wisdom teeth removal cause headaches?
They certainly can. After the procedure, there will be pain in the area during the healing process. This can lead to muscle tension and potentially developing headaches while the healing process is ongoing. Do not worry as these headaches will subside over time.
Can wisdom teeth removal affect the shape of your face?
Removing your wisdom teeth will no affect on the overall shape of your face. Remember, the majority of these teeth are embedded within your jawbone, so they do not affect how your face is shaped initially either. Removing them will have no impact on the shape of your face.
Can I remove my wisdom teeth under nitrous oxide (laughing gas)?
Although the majority of people remove their wisdom teeth under IV sedation, there are a good number of people who remove their teeth under laughing gas. Remember, laughing gas will not sedate you during your procedure. It will only calm you down.

Can wisdom teeth removal cause vertigo?
This is a very rare occurrence, and it is not something we at the Wisdom Teeth Factory have heard of before.
Can wisdom teeth removal lead to an infection?
Yes, but again this is very rare. There are a small handful of cases that lead to small infections. These need to be treated immediately. If you feel you are developing an infection after your procedure, or that the sites are not healing properly contact your dentist immediately, so that he or she can evaluate the area as soon as possible.
Can Wisdom Teeth Removal lead to sleep apnea?
There is no correlation between removing wisdom teeth, and developing long term sleep apnea. If you notice you are developing an abnormal breathing pattern while you are sleeping, please contact your physician right away. He or she may recommend a sleep study to diagnose any issues that you may have.
Can wisdom teeth removal cause canker sores?
Although rare, canker sores do arise a times after wisdom teeth removal. As our immune system continues to fluctuate during the healing process, canker sores may arise. Do not worry though, there are many ways to remedy this, and they will go away shortly after your procedure (within 1-2 weeks).
Can wisdom teeth removal shift your other teeth?
The removal of your wisdom teeth should have no affect of shifting of adjacent teeth, or any other teeth inside of your mouth. There have been no conclusive studies that have been performed that would lead to this conclusion.
How does wisdom teeth removal work?
This is a great question. It is best explained through the use to both a visual animation, and a step by step guide. The following guide assumes that a wisdom tooth is impacted (is embedded within the jawbone). 1) Local anesthesia will be used to numb the tooth and the surrounding tissue. 2) The gum tissue is reflected back using to gain access to the wisdom tooth, which is embedded within the jawbone. 3) A few millimeters of the jawbone is removed to gain complete access to the wisdom tooth. 4) The wisdom tooth is sectioned and removed using a drill and instruments. 5) Any infected cystic tissue is removed from the socket to assure proper healing of the area. 6) The area is copiously irrigated with normal saline to remove any debris. 7) The area is sutured together using a dis solvable stitch (these normally dissolve within 7-10 days).
How does a wisdom tooth site heal after extraction?
It normally takes 6-8 weeks for complete healing of the site after a wisdom tooth is removed. A blood clot forms in the region after your tooth is removed. This blood clot contains the cellular network to form new cells that help develop bone and soft tissue to replace the space that the tooth originally occupied.
What kind of foods can I eat after my wisdom tooth extractions?
We recommend soft foods for the first few days along with plenty of fluids. Potatoes, smoothies, Gatorade are all strongly recommended as your body is in the initial healing process. After the first week, you can resume to regular diet.
Does the Wisdom Teeth Factory offer payment plans?
We currently do have payment plan options through third party finance companies. We will do everything we can to make sure you are approved during your consultation appointment.
