Wisdom Tooth Extraction- BLACKWELL, OK

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Keeping Your Smile Healthy

Wisdom teeth. You’ve probably heard of them, but do you know anything about them? Well, if they aren’t evaluated at the right time, they could cause problems for your oral health. Luckily, at Blackwell Dentistry, we have the technology and the expertise to let you know whether your wisdom teeth are okay or need to be removed. That way, you can continue to enjoy your healthy smile.


What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are the final permanent teeth to erupt or grow in sometime between the ages of 16 and 22. Although it’s certainly possible for them to come in normally, many do not, which can present problems for your oral health.


Why Are Third Molars Removed?

Ideally, wisdom teeth would grow into position with plenty of room and perfectly aligned. That’s doesn’t always happen. Your mouth may not have the space to accommodate wisdom teeth, potentially causing impaction, which is when the tooth is positioned at a sharp angle against the second molar. Although impaction may not present immediate symptoms, over time it can lead to pain, damage to other teeth, infection, and more susceptibility to tooth decay and gum disease. If your wisdom teeth do not erupt normally, it will likely be better for your long-term oral health to have them extracted.


How Are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

During regular checkups, we often take digital X-rays to review your oral health underneath the surface. It is while reviewing these X-rays that one of our dentists identify your wisdom teeth and determine whether they will grow in properly. If we find that they need to be removed, we will schedule your procedure when it is convenient for you.

At Blackwell Dentistry, we are dedicated to ensuring the comfort of our patients. That’s why we offer several kinds of sedation, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation, and can cater to your needs. Depending on your case, extracting your wisdom teeth could be as simple as pulling the tooth from its socket to a more complex surgical procedure. For surgery, we do our best to work efficiently and finish within one appointment, but there are cases when a second may be necessary.


What Happens After Wisdom Teeth Removal?

With any oral surgical procedure, it is important that you follow the specific instructions that we give you. However, here are some general guidelines for caring for the site after extraction:

Have someone, like a family member or friend, monitor your recovery.

Keep gauze over the sockets for the first two days after the procedure.

To help with swelling and inflammation in the cheeks and jaw line, use ice packs at 20-minute intervals for the first two days.

Get plenty of sleep and avoid rigorous activities for at least a few days.

Our team at Blackwell Dentistry is committed to helping your smile stay happy and healthy in the long term. If wisdom teeth extraction is necessary, we will do everything possible to make the process smooth, painless, and efficient. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Called at 9am to make an appointment because one of my wisdom teeth broke they got me in at 10am. Asked me if I wanted to go ahead and have all 4 wisdom teeth removed, as well as several fillings & a cleaning. So I did & I was VERY pleased with how well it went. All the girls were so friendly! Dr. Neale was so amazing & they made sure I was comfortable for the entire thing.

Dr Aaron Neale and his staff are wonderful! They are so kind and compassionate, they make you feel comfortable, and listen to their patients. I had avoided going to the dentist for so long prior because my experience at other dentist just wasn’t good. Dr Neale and his staff are so good, I didn’t feel anything with my extraction or my root canal, not even the shots to numb the area! I won’t go anywhere else!

This is the ONLY dentist I will ever take my daughters to. The entire staff has made dental visits no longer traumatized for my girls. Dr. Neale, himself has stopped working on other clients and made sure that when my girls were on the verge of having a meltdown, that they were able to get back down to their normal breathing and sweet hearted natures. Everyone in his office and on his staff, from the moment you Walk into the office, take their own time and special approach all to assure you of the best, care possible, without the fear, trauma, and brutal methods alot of other dentist s use to " manage" small children. The members of Blackwell dentistry actually do care about each and every patient they see, and I am grateful my girls are no longer fearful or having panic attacks when I inform them that their visit is due. Thank you guys so much for the time, patience, and care you give us each and every visit!!
