Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure aimed at addressing issues related to the growth and positioning of the third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. At Table Mountain Dental, Dr. Craig Cardon offers expert wisdom teeth removal in Arvada, Colorado.

Understanding Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, which typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25, can often cause problems due to factors such as overcrowding, impaction or improper alignment. Some common reasons for wisdom teeth removal include:

  • Impaction: When wisdom teeth are unable to fully emerge through the gums, leading to pain, infection or damage to adjacent teeth.
  • Overcrowding: Wisdom teeth can cause crowding or shifting of other teeth, affecting bite alignment and oral health.
  • Infection: Partially erupted wisdom teeth can trap food and bacteria, leading to gum inflammation and infection.

The Procedure

  • Consultation: Our dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if wisdom teeth removal is necessary.
  • Extraction: The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The teeth are carefully removed, and sutures may be placed if needed.
  • Recovery: Following the procedure, you will receive instructions for post-operative care to promote healing and minimize discomfort.
