To ensure your comfort, our surgeons offer a variety of anesthesia options and will walk you through each step of your care.

Our office in Newtown, PA, is less than six miles west of Yardley, PA. If you live in Yardley or anywhere in Bucks County and think it’s time to have your or your child’s wisdom teeth removed, contact Innovative Oral Surgery & Dental Implants to schedule a consultation.

Why Should I Have Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last adult teeth to come in. The second molars are responsible for chewing food and the average adult mouth does not have room for an extra set of molars, which is why dental experts recommend having wisdom teeth removed. We recommend undergoing wisdom teeth removal when these molars first develop, which is during the late teens or early twenties. However, you can have wisdom teeth taken out at any age.

If left untreated, wisdom teeth can push other teeth out of alignment, damage their roots, and cause bite problems, pain, tooth decay, and more. Some wisdom teeth are impacted—trapped beneath the gums—and must be surgically removed because they cannot erupt naturally. If you or your child have wisdom teeth, having them removed as soon as possible will prevent these issues and more from arising, contributing to better long-term oral health.

Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure

Using 3D scans, we will assess the size and location of the wisdom teeth and create a custom surgical plan to extract them. Your surgeon will help you choose the right type of anesthesia or sedation for your procedure to ensure your comfort and safety. Many patients undergo IV anesthesia for wisdom teeth removal.

During the procedure, your surgeon will extract erupted wisdom teeth using forceps, similar to a simple tooth extraction. Impacted wisdom teeth are partially or fully trapped beneath the gums. To access these molars, your surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose and remove them. Sutures are placed as necessary, and you will rest in our office until the anesthesia wears off.

Recovery After Wisdom Teeth Removal

At Innovative Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, we provide every patient with detailed care instructions to promote a speedy recovery. These instructions will outline how to manage pain and swelling, which foods to avoid, and how to maintain good oral hygiene while you heal. Here are some tips for your wisdom teeth recovery:

  • Avoid smoking, spitting, or sucking through a straw, as these actions could dislodge the blood clot and cause a painful condition known as dry socket.
  • Stick to soft foods like yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, eggs, pudding, etc.
  • Apply an ice pack to the outside of the jaw to reduce swelling.
  • Take over-the-counter pain medications as recommended by your surgeon to manage discomfort.

Contact our office if you have questions during your recovery. A member of our team will be happy to assist you.
