Wisdom Teeth

Video Transcription

So one of the main procedures that we provide here at AArkansas Oral And Maxillofacial Surgeons is wisdom tooth removal. The best time to have your wisdom teeth removed is during your teenage years. When the teeth are not completely formed, the teeth are easier to remove. The post-operative complications are minimal and recovery is much easier. If you haven't had your wisdom teeth removed and you're wondering, do I need my wisdom teeth out? It's a lot of times you don't know there's actually a problem there when there's actually a problem existing. So a lot of the teenagers, they're afraid to come in and do their wisdom teeth and they really don't need to be afraid. The recovery is so simple. Our priority for all patients is safety and the best possible outcome. You can rest assured that your family member, your daughter, your son is going to be well taken care of. And we have the expertise and the experience required to get the best possible outcome from your wisdom tooth surgery. I came to AOMS because I was referred by my dentist to get my wisdom teeth removed. I remember coming in and I was crying and scared, of course, but they comforted me and made sure I was OK. They prepared me by taking me in a room, and they showed me what needed to be removed. And the doctor told me what was how it was going to go and what he was going to do and kind of walked me through the process of it all. And that kind of made me feel more comfortable knowing what was going on. The staff was very professional about everything that went on and they were sure to make me feel comfortable. They were there for me, even after the fact, to make sure I had a full and successful recovery. They even had instructions on their website for what to do before and after I had my wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Baldwin is very good at what he does, and I'm very, very glad that I came here to get my wisdom teeth removed.

What are wisdom teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.
