What can I expect from wisdom teeth extraction?
Whether you have planned molar removal or need emergency wisdom tooth removal, the team at Gomez Family Dentistry can assist. The wisdom teeth, or the third molars, are the last to develop within the smile–and often the most problematic. This is because they often become impacted, stuck beneath the gum line and into the bone of the jaw, causing pain and movement of the teeth. Our Pensacola, Florida area dentists, Drs. Gina and Christopher Gomez can provide both surgical and simple extraction of these third molars for new and current patients.
What types of removal are available?
We offer both surgical and simple removal of wisdom teeth. Simple extraction is performed when the wisdom tooth is above the gum line and accessible for removal using specialized dental extraction tools. On the other hand, surgical extraction is saved for situations where wisdom teeth have not yet erupted or have become impacted underneath the gum line. Healing and recovery following surgical wisdom tooth removal are longer than simple wisdom tooth removal. Our dentists will provide aftercare instructions to facilitate faster healing and reduce the risk of infection and other complications that can arise following molar removal.
How much does wisdom teeth removal cost?
Several factors need to be taken into consideration when quoting the cost of treatment, including:
- The type of extraction performed
- How many wisdom teeth are being removed
- The patient’s dental insurance plan and coverage
During a consultation appointment before removal, our team can give you a more accurate cost of treatment based on the above information provided at this visit.
