Wisdom Tooth Removal

Impacted wisdom teeth can also cause health problems if left untreated.  An opening can form around the tooth where bacteria can grow, leading to infection, swelling, and pain. In very severe cases, infection or cysts can develop around the impacted wisdom tooth and can cause the deterioration of the jawbone and can damage other healthy teeth. To prevent such problems from occurring, early wisdom tooth removal is often recommended.  

Dr. Tahir offers safe and effective wisdom teeth removal as a part of your orthodontic treatment plan.  Wisdom teeth removal is performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation or general anesthesia and can often be done in-office.  After a thorough examination of your teeth, Dr. Tahir will determine which method is suitable for you.  Patients can expect a recovery period of a few days and Dr. Tahir will prescribe pain medication to help make you feel as comfortable as possible.
