Did you know that an estimated 5 million Americans per year undergo wisdom teeth removal? Not all patients need it, but for many, this common procedure can play an important role in preventing crowding, decay, and even infection.
The skilled oral surgeons at Fitz Dental offer the very best wisdom tooth removal services in Dallas, TX. For us, your comfort is our priority!
Do Your Wisdom Teeth Need To Be Pulled Out?
Most patients have their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s, which is when wisdom teeth are typically ready to erupt. During this time, it's normal for teens and young adults to feel soreness in the back of the mouth.
If the wisdom teeth erupt at an angle, there can be a much higher risk of problems developing in the future. Third molars can affect the bite or can create an area where food particles get caught and cause decay or even an infection. Wisdom tooth removal is one of the best things you can do to eliminate these potential issues.
If you or your child is experiencing pain, call us immediately to schedule a wisdom teeth consultation. During this appointment, our dentists will take a series of digital x-rays and examine the teeth and mouth for signs of overcrowding. It is then that they will determine the best plan for treatment.
What Can I Expect From Wisdom Teeth Surgery?
Since most patients require a heavy sedative during this procedure, we ask that someone drives you to and from your appointment. The average extraction typically takes less than an hour to complete.
Prior to the wisdom tooth extraction procedure, we will offer IV sedation to keep you calm, comfortable, and pain-free for the duration of the procedure. You should expect slight discomfort in the days that follow, but we will provide you with all the tools to make your recovery a quick one!
How Much Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost?
Your wisdom teeth removal cost may vary depending on the number of teeth you need extracted and the specifics of your specific case.
At Fitz Dental, we accept most PPO insurance plans, as well as Medicaid. We also provide discounts on cash payments and accept no-interest financing plans through CareCredit®.
