Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that erupt towards the back of your jaw. Sometimes, due to lack of space, the teeth at the back get stuck inside the bone, either completely or partially, and struggle to come out. These are also known as impacted third molars.
The third molars are more prone to bacterial growth and decay because of the complexity of the impaction. Removal of the wisdom teeth is usually required in one or more of the following situations: when there is swelling and pain in the region, if the teeth are infected, if you are having difficulty opening your mouth, if you have a recurrent ear infection, or sometimes, if you have trouble swallowing food. You may also need to remove the wisdom teeth if the impacted third molars hit the adjacent healthy second molars below the bone level and cause damage to those teeth.
Before finalizing the treatment plan, we take a digital panoramic X-ray to analyze and confirm the position and condition of the impacted teeth. We then have a highly experienced oral surgeon review these X-Rays and consult with you on diagnosis and treatment. Wisdom teeth removal is a safe surgical procedure that may take 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the difficulty level. The area will be numbed with local anesthetic well before performing the procedure. Our surgeon will make sure to treat you with the utmost comfort during the entire process. We also offer nitrous as an option if you are nervous or have dental fear. After removing the wisdom teeth, our surgeon will suture the surgical site for faster healing. You may need to come back to the office after a week for the follow-up and suture removal. You are free to ask questions at any time and we will be happy to help you.
Dr. Dobee IS AMAZING, she helped me with my deep clean and continued to follow up with me afterwards to make sure I was experiencing minimal pain throughout the recovery process. She really cares about her patients and I HIGHLY recommend her!
Wow Dr. Dobee is by far the best dentist I've ever been to. She's not only really intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing but she's also very funny and makes the whole experience of going to a dentist a really great one.
I couldn't be happier with my care at Dr Dobee's office! Everyone there is amazing and thanks to Dr Dobee I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Especially thanks to Des at the front desk for making all my visits seamless. Love you guys!
Best dentist I've had and so glad I found her…outstanding in her field but also great interpersonal skills and sensitive to her patients needs. Staff Joanna and Des are professional and make patient feel comfortable and welcomed. I enjoy my visits and it is because the staff and Dentists are ON IT!
I had some problems with my insurance which the front desk took care of and they were super friendly while waiting for responds regarding my insurance. My visit was very informative also the treatment plans weren't pushed and forced like other dentists do. So they're going to be my place for dental treatments from now on!
I'm so fortunate to have found dr Dobee !
She's a beautiful soul! Very caring & professional !
Very trusting ! I have had the bad luck to get bad dentistry practiced upon my teeth , Dobee has been do everything she can to help me out with the budget I have . Her work is worth every penny !
Dr. Dobee has a heart of gold and the skills of an amazing dentist. I had the pleasure of having her take care of my teeth and make solid recommendations on what I need for future work. I walked out with super clean teeth and a well taken care of smile.
I came here because of the yelp reviews and they didn't disappoint. Great availability and friendly staff.
A trip to the dentist you will actually enjoy! It's the first time I've ever looked forward to my next dental appointment. I mean what dentist do you know that's had a private dinner with Obama??
