This is by far one of the best and most professional dentists office I've ever been to. I had 3 wisdom teeth that needed to be pulled. I walked into the office for my appointment and was greeted by the 2 lovely front desk staff members who immediately made me feel welcome. After my x-rays were taken, Dr. Yamen reviewed them with me in Layman's terms and set the extraction appointment on the following Monday (consultation was Friday). The procedure was quick, easy, and painless. I was in and out of the office in about 1 hour for 3 wisdom teeth extractions. Great service, exceptional staff, I definitely recommend this office.

More About Wisdom Teeth

When Do They Erupt?

Wisdom teeth are the very last set of molars to erupt. Typically, they grow in during the late teenage years or the early 20s. While many individuals have impacted wisdom teeth, some develop them normally with no issues, while others do not develop them at all.

Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Patients with impacted third molars may experience pain, tenderness, or swelling in the gums near the back of the jaw. Some may notice trapped food or even pus at the gum line. However, some individuals are asymptomatic. That is why routine dental visits are so important.

Sedation Options for Comfortable Treatment

Our Orland Park, IL, dentists offer sedation options during wisdom teeth removal for optimal comfort. Patients can choose from nitrous oxide, oral sedatives, or IV sedation. We also work alongside a board-certified anesthesiologist when necessary. Dental visits do not have to be stressful. Ask your doctor which option is right for you.

Wisdom Tooth Removal Procedure

Day of Procedure

X-rays

Scans and x-rays are taken to determine the exact location of the problematic teeth. These also help your dentist identify sinus and nerve placement.

Anesthesia

To begin, local anesthesia is administered to numb the affected areas. Any sedative medications are delivered at this point as well.

Access

If the teeth are impacted, your dentist creates a small incision in the gums to carefully access the areas.

Tooth Removal

Using specialized dental instruments, your dentist loosens the tooth and lifts it from the socket. If necessary, the tooth may be divided into sections for easier extraction.

Cleaning the Socket

Once the tooth has been removed, the socket is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This ensures that all residual infection is eliminated.

Closing the Incisions

Finally, the gum tissue is repositioned and the incisions are closed with surgical sutures. A gauze pack is placed over the site to control bleeding and help clot formation.
