Qualified Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Anchorage, Alaska

Your wisdom teeth are the last back molars to come in. They tend to arrive in a person’s late teens and early twenties. Wisdom teeth are known to create many issues with surrounding teeth and tissue, which can cause infection, the shifting of your teeth’s alignment (a bummer if you’ve had braces), and can even damage your nerves and surrounding teeth.

Having your wisdom teeth removed helps to protect your surrounding teeth and prevent long-term problems that can help keep your teeth healthy and happy.
Here at Delaney Park Dental, we offer a unique 3D imaging service that allows us to get a clear picture of your mouth and present to you what to expect before your surgery.

Skilled Dental Extraction

Why Find a Dentist Who is Proficient at Removing Wisdom Teeth

Like most dental procedures, it is imperative to have wisdom teeth removed by a dentist who is highly proficient in the removal of these type of teeth. Unlike other teeth, wisdom teeth can be detected early, before they have even emerged into the jawline, which makes them less traumatic to remove, but do require oral surgery.

A dentist who is proficient in wisdom tooth removal will understand all the risks associated both with removing wisdom teeth, but will also be able to guide you through what to expect both before, after and during surgery. They will educate you on the reasons why you should have them removed, and what the potential risks are for avoiding the surgery altogether. Your dentist should also be comfortable discussing what type of discomfort you should experience during the procedure, and be able to administer proper sedation and pain management procedures so that you can receive the treatment with minimal discomfort.

As mentioned earlier, the dentist you choose to remove your wisdom teeth should also have a structured follow-up plan that minimizes pain and allows for fast recovery.

 

Post-Surgery Recovery

What to do After a Surgery

Your post surgery care will depend on what exactly you had done. However, with any oral surgery, proper rest is always advised. Dr. Miles is your dentist and oral surgeon in Anchorage at Delaney Park Dental will advise you on pain management and get you situated with the proper prescriptions when necessary.

If anything seems unusual about your situation, you can always contact our dental office and get in touch with someone who can give you proper instructions as well as letting you know if what you are experiencing is normal.

Removal Decision Factors

How to Know If Your Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed

At Delaney Park Dental, we believe that the sooner wisdom teeth are removed, the better. The reason for that is the younger you are, the faster you heal, and quite often lesser developed wisdom teeth are easier to remove and less traumatic to do so for a patient.

We use a unique 3D modeling software that allows us to get a clear picture of your mouth and see the status of your wisdom teeth before they can cause any problems. Often wisdom teeth do not grow in the way they should, not at all, or become impacted, all of which can cause serious mouth and dental problems such as increased sinus pressure.

According to the American Dental Association, wisdom teeth removal may be necessary if you experience changes in the area of those teeth, such as:

Today was my first time visiting this dentist office in hopes of getting my wisdom tooth removed as it’s been bothering me for last two weeks. The front desk lady, the dentist helper and the dr were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a new dentist to check them out. I already have my second appointment scheduled next month to get some more dental work done. Thank you for taking care of my dental needs today!

I brought both of my kiddos to see Dr. Miles for the first time, and see my dental hygienist (brown hair pretty) I’m terrible with names but she is the best!!!! This office has been the only dental office I have stayed at since 2018. I’m so happy to get my kids in they loved it and felt like everyone was so kind and explained things so well to them about oral care. Now to get my husband in!
