Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, which are third molars, typically begin to appear in people between the ages of 17 and 25 years old. If the jaw is big enough to accommodate these teeth, then there is usually no need to remove the wisdom teeth.

  Impacted wisdom tooth However, if the jaw is not large enough, then the wisdom teeth may not be able to break through the gum line correctly. Impacted wisdom teeth refer to molars that are completely or partially stuck below the gum line. They may crowd the other teeth, shifting them out of position. That can lead to problems with the person’s bite and the person’s ability to speak and chew.

Our Coast Dental Cascade oral surgeon in Atlanta may recommend wisdom teeth extractions for reasons including:

  • Your jaw bone is not large enough for the wisdom teeth to emerge from under the gums
  • The wisdom teeth are coming through the gums only partway or are coming in at an awkward angle, which can lead to infection
  • The impacted wisdom teeth are damaging the jaw bone or other teeth
  • The wisdom teeth are leading to sinus pain, pressure, and/or congestion

Wisdom teeth don’t always cause pain, which is why our dentist uses x-rays to monitor how the teeth are coming in. If it looks like the wisdom teeth may cause problems, then the dentist will likely recommend having the wisdom teeth removed when you’re in your late teens or early 20s. That’s because the roots of the wisdom teeth are not fully developed yet, and the bone around the teeth is less dense. Younger people also tend to heal faster than older people.

Whether you need to have your wisdom teeth removed to prevent future problems or alleviate an existing condition, our dentist will be happy to talk to you about any questions you have. Call our Coast Dental office on Cascade Road SW at (678) 891-0069 to schedule a consultation about wisdom teeth extractions.

Dr. Mark is very kind and compassionate. I was very nervous being that my teeth weren’t in the best shape. I have been working with her now for months on my treatment plan and it has been great. The front staff and dental assistants are very kind as well. This is my new dentist home

Exceptional Dental Care at Coast Dental at Cascade! I recently visited Coast Dental for a periodontal cleaning, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. From the moment I stepped into the clinic, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism by the staff. The dental hygienist at Coast Dental was exceptional. She was thorough, gentle, and took the time to explain every step of the cleaning process, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed throughout. Coast Dental's facility is modern, clean, and well-equipped, reflecting their commitment to providing top-notch dental care. The entire team displayed a high level of expertise and genuine care for their patients' oral health. After my visit, I left feeling refreshed and confident in the health of my gums and teeth. I highly recommend Coast Dental to anyone seeking outstanding dental care. Thank you, Coast Dental, for your excellent service and dedication to patient satisfaction!

My first experience wasn't so good because I was double booked and the doctors were limited....it was horrible, but I stayed to get the work done because I had taken off from work to attend my scheduled visit. My second appointment was scheduled appropriately and I was welcomed in and the service I received was great. The dentist did a great job with my deep cleaning and notified me of what was going on with my teeth. The dentist was professional and confident in her work and I felt very well taken care of. The second time around was a great experience. I would recommend this location for great dental service.
