When Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Usually Happen?
The following signs will occur, and you will know it is time for your teen to have their wisdom teeth removed so they do not cause serious problems. The wisdom teeth may have partially erupted, which means they have partially surfaced, meaning they do not have enough room in the mouth. However, everyone experiences different symptoms at different times, which is why wisdom teeth removal happens at different ages. Some signs that it is time to remove wisdom teeth are:
- Infection in the mouth
- Facial swelling
- Swelling of the gumline in the back of the mouth
Wholly impacted teeth may not have come through the gum and may never erupt into the mouth properly. If your wisdom teeth are not causing problems, we will not move forward with removal until it is necessary. However, if the teeth are causing problems, or we notice the leading up to a problem, we recommend removing them as soon as possible to avoid any future pain.
Some Problems Associated With Molars

How It Works
Wisdom teeth removal usually starts with an incision through the gum tissue that presides over the tooth, gently detaching the tissue between the tooth and the bone. Then remove the tooth and sew the opening gum.
Most wisdom teeth removals can be done in the office with general sedation methods. Before starting your wisdom teeth removal, we will talk to you about the procedure to ensure you of any questions you may have and how everything works. Teens and parents should know the step-by-step process and what to do once their wisdom teeth are removed.
