Wisdom Teeth

Dentist extracting patients wisdom tooth.

Wisdom teeth extractions are one of the most common oral surgeries we provide here at Pima Dental.  Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.  If wisdom teeth have insufficient room to fully erupt, pain, infection and other dental problems can commonly occur. Removing wisdom teeth can alleviate discomfort and pain as well as preventing damage to other teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

At Pima Dental your comfort and safety are our top priority.  As most everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth extracted, our doctors make this process as comfortable as possible.  We employ several pain-reducing techniques:
  1. Local Anesthesia: this refers to the numbing injection performed after the gums are numbed by a numbing gel as a way to eliminate pain from the surgical site. All surgical procedures use local anesthetic, but only after the patient is asleep if sedation is being utilized.
  2. Nitrous Oxide Sedations:  This is classically known as “Laughing Gas”. Not all procedures are eligible for this type of sedation but in some circumstances where it is, it can reduce pain and anxiety for patients who decide to stay awake for their surgery.
  3. IV Sedation: The most popular choice for wisdom teeth extraction, IV Sedation allows the patient to stay asleep throughout the entire procedure for a painless wisdom tooth extraction experience. When IV sedation is used, the patient is safely breathing on their own, however they will not have much if any memory of their surgery.
