Wisdom teeth tend to erupt in the late teens or early twenties, and they are notorious for causing problems ranging from impaction to chronic cavities. We will examine your child’s mouth and take X-rays to determine if they need to have their wisdom teeth removed. That way, we can take them out before they cause any major issues. Thanks to our skilled hands and use of sedation dentistry, most patients enjoy a comfortable experience and are able to heal within a few days after wisdom tooth extractions in Aurora, IL.
Most of the time, the wisdom teeth are removed before they have fully come in, calling for a procedure known as a surgical extraction. After a patient is thoroughly numb, gum or bone tissue still encapsulating a tooth is removed first, so the tooth itself will come out rather easily. This approach helps minimize any issues caused by the wisdom teeth and can prevent many from occurring in the first place. After the procedure, in most cases, a patient should feel fully recovered in about a week.
