Common questions about wisdom teeth removal


About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Studies show that wisdom teeth will cause complications over your lifetime, and although they may not be causing symptoms that you feel or are aware of, there could be issues going on under the surface that are problematic. If you’re not sure about the status of your wisdom teeth, or just want more information about wisdom teeth removal, make an appointment to see a wisdom teeth dentist and oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Wisdom teeth removal is a personal decision and your dentist will take a look at your X-rays and work with you to ensure you have a happy and healthy smile.

Wisdom teeth are often impacted, meaning that they’re not able to fully erupt through the gum line due to limited space. If you’ve had braces or Invisalign prior to your wisdom teeth coming in, not opting for wisdom teeth extraction could ruin the straight teeth you’ve worked so hard to achieve! Without removing these wisdom teeth, your bottom and top rows of teeth will be pushed forward, causing overcrowding, crooked teeth and bite problems. This will all require additional future maxillofacial surgery to re-straighten your teeth.

Overcrowding can ruin a healthy smile because teeth that are too close together can become breeding grounds for plaque and bacteria. Crooked and crowded teeth are more difficult to clean when you brush and floss your teeth. Built-up bacteria might not be removed until you have a professional cleaning. This will allow tartar to form, increasing the chances of tooth decay and gum disease. Wisdom teeth removal can help prevent such overcrowding. When your wisdom teeth are extracted, there is more space available which makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene and reduces your risk of having oral health problems. This preventive measure is important for maintaining a healthy smile and avoiding any future need for oral maxillofacial surgery.

At Spodak Dental in Delray Beach, our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon will be able to take care of any and all problematic wisdom teeth to not only keep you out of pain, but also to maintain your healthy and straight smile.

Our facility was designed with your healing in mind


noun a scientific movement linking human health and responsiveness to natural environments

Life loves life. It may seem like common sense to some, but it’s actually real science. Recent studies in biophilia have shown that people actually heal faster and perform better when surrounded by nature and natural light, which is why we designed every inch of this facility based on this principle.

Each operatory has floor-to-ceiling windows and live plants, which allow for a calming and healing environment for the patient. Doctors and team members also benefit as natural lighting lowers the occurrence of human errors.

Access to Natural Light
Absence of harmful chemicals
Clean air and filtered water
Lush healing gardens

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I absolutely need to have my wisdom teeth extracted?

No! But, it is incredibly important to make sure you visit your dental team regularly so they can assess whether or not the wisdom teeth are growing in properly or not. There are several issues that can occur from impacted wisdom teeth, like abscesses, pain, crooked teeth, etc., and your dental team wants to avoid this at all costs. Regular check-ups allow them to determine if wisdom teeth removal is necessary to prevent these complications and maintain your oral health.

How long is the recovery time?

This depends person to person. Some people feel minimal pain after wisdom teeth extraction and are able to go back to work or school in a couple of days. Other people experience more swelling after surgery and will need to relax for several days. Impacted wisdom teeth are more difficult to extract, which is another reason to see your dentist so he/she can recommend the best time to have your wisdom teeth extracted.

Will it hurt?

The great news about our office is that we specialize in oral maxillofacial surgery, including wisdom teeth removal, and have a full-time nurse on our team, as well as an anesthesiologist who can provide varying levels of pain management. If you’d like, we can put you to sleep during the wisdom tooth extraction so you don’t feel anything at all. Or, if you prefer to be awake during the tooth extraction, we can provide, for instance, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you relax. Our goal is to make your experience as pain-free and comfortable as possible during the tooth removal process.

Is this covered by my insurance?

It depends on the insurance you have, but most insurances do cover wisdom teeth removal! Our treatment coordinators and insurance specialists are skilled in handling claims for oral maxillofacial surgery, which includes wisdom teeth extractions. They will work diligently to maximize your dental insurance benefits so you can worry less about finances and more about the healthy smile you want! We’re here to assist you every step of the way, whether it’s a wisdom tooth extraction or any other oral surgery need.
