Wisdom Teeth

The third set of molars, more commonly known as “Wisdom Teeth”, tend to come in between the ages of 17-25 years old. The removal of one or more third molars is a relatively common procedure, performed on some 5 million patients every year. After a thorough examination and diagnostic tests, such as x-rays or a CT scan, you may be told that you should have your wisdom teeth surgically removed.

Wisdom tooth removal is usually an in-office procedure done by an oral surgeon. Depending on what type of anesthesia you have had, you may need another person to drive.

Your recovery period after wisdom tooth removal typically lasts a few days. During this time it is important to rest and treat any swelling and pain as needed. Before you leave Sharma Oral Surgery after your wisdom tooth removal, we provide you with care instructions and a few goodies to help with the recovery.

Apart from wisdom tooth procedures, extracting a tooth or teeth is also a serious matter and requires detailed planning to ensure the health and viability of a patient’s dental structure for the long term. You need the combined experience of Dr. Sharma and his team if you have ever considered whether or not a tooth extraction is right for you. Here are some of the areas of expertise you can expect with our clinic.

No this isn’t about doorknobs and strings! Tooth extraction has come a long way and many of our patients (if they actually end up needing an extraction) are surprised by how easy it is. Advanced technology is now employed to maximize comfort during the procedure.

Should the decision be made to fit dentures, it is almost certain that some tooth extraction will be necessary. Careful planning is used to preserve healthy tissue to help assure long-term dental structure health.
