Wisdom teeth removal in Northern Kentucky usually happens when a person is in their teens or early 20s, often because of discomfort or because the teeth are coming in improperly. Sometimes they are removed later in life if they make an older adult more prone to problems like decay and gum disease.
Doctor Theiss on Wisdom Teeth Removal Read Transcript
Well, if you need wisdom teeth removal, we'll check things. We'll take the right X-rays. We'll take a 3-D scan so we can see all the roots and where all the teeth are positioned. We have a special surgical suite here that we can take care of those wisdom teeth problems, if you have a problem.
No matter why you need your wisdom teeth removed, or when, we’ll make sure your extraction goes well. You’ll appreciate:
- Our experienced dentist and team
- Effective local anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain
- Comfortable, completely private operatories
- Dental sedation to soothe your nerves
- Leading-edge technology like 3D imaging for planning your procedure
While Dr. James D. Theiss can perform most wisdom teeth extractions, he may refer more complicated cases such as impacted wisdom teeth to an oral surgeon. Call 859-781-3090 if you think you may need to have your wisdom teeth removed.
Don’t Ignore Signs of Wisdom Teeth Trouble
Dr. Theiss will look for signs of problematic wisdom teeth during your dental exams. He can use high-tech tools like an intraoral camera and 3D imaging to get a better look, if needed. Don’t wait for an exam, though, if you’re experiencing any of these signs of wisdom teeth trouble:
- Chronic bad breath
- An unpleasant taste in your mouth
- Gums that are red, swollen, tender, or bleeding
Stay Relaxed During Your Wisdom Teeth Extraction With Sedation
You’ll receive local anesthesia to thoroughly numb your mouth prior to your procedure. If you’d like, you can also receive sedation to ease your anxiety and keep you relaxed. We typically recommend laughing gas, which is administered through a small mask worn over your nose.
You’ll feel its effects within minutes. We can easily adjust the amount received during the procedure if you need more or less. Unlike other kinds of sedation, it wears off so quickly you’ll feel like yourself again almost right away.
