Wisdom Teeth Extractions In Dunwoody

What is Wisdom Teeth Removal?

At Peach Dental, every wisdom tooth extraction begins with a thorough oral examination. Dr. Reznik utilizes advanced x-ray technology to accurately assess the position of the wisdom teeth, determining if there are current or potential future complications. Early evaluation, as recommended by studies, leads to superior outcomes for our patients. Typically, wisdom teeth assessments are first advised during the mid-teenage years by dentists or orthodontists.

Customized Anesthesia for Maximum Comfort

We understand that the idea of surgery can be daunting. Therefore, all outpatient surgeries, including wisdom tooth extractions, are performed under appropriate anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. Dr. Reznik, backed by extensive training and licensing, excels in administering various types of anesthesia, including nitrous oxide and IV sedation. Our aim is to make the experience as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

Why Should You Consider Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Impacted wisdom teeth, which occur when there isn't enough room in the mouth for the teeth to emerge properly, can lead to several issues if not addressed:

  • Infections and Pericoronitis: The most common problem associated with wisdom teeth is pericoronitis, a painful gum infection that occurs when a wisdom tooth partially erupts and leaves the gum tissue vulnerable.
  • Cyst and Tumor Formation: Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to the development of cysts or, in rare cases, tumors within the jaw, which can cause extensive damage to the jawbone and adjacent teeth if not treated early.
  • Damage to Adjacent Teeth: If a wisdom tooth does not fully emerge, it can be difficult to clean around it, increasing the risk of decay and gum disease in adjacent teeth.
  • Crowding of Teeth: Particularly noted in patients who have undergone orthodontic treatments, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to visible crowding, primarily affecting the lower front teeth.

Procedure and Recovery

The wisdom tooth extraction process at Peach Dental is efficient and focuses on patient safety and rapid recovery. The procedure typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the complexity, under the safest conditions with state-of-the-art sterilization and infection control practices.

Following the surgery, Dr. Reznik and our team ensure you are equipped with detailed post-operative care instructions and pain management solutions, allowing for a smooth and comfortable healing period. We also advise patients to have a responsible adult accompany them on the day of the procedure for added support.

Insurance and Costs

During your initial consultation, Dr. Reznik will review your x-rays and discuss the best options for anesthesia and surgery. Our administrative staff at Peach Dental is adept at navigating insurance policies and will assist you in obtaining the maximum insurance coverage for your procedure.
