Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth extractions are a common dental procedure. Approximately five million Americans have their wisdom teeth removed each year.

“Wisdom teeth” refer to the third molars that typically appear in the mouth when people are between the ages of 17 and 25. It’s the last set of teeth to come in.

Why Wisdom Teeth May Need to be Removed

  Impacted wisdom tooth.Your Cape Coral dentist or oral surgeon may recommend removing your wisdom teeth if your jaw is not large enough to accommodate them. If your dentist tells you that you have impacted wisdom teeth, it means the teeth are partially or completely trapped beneath the gum line. Impacted wisdom teeth can create problems with speaking, eating, and oral hygiene. The wisdom teeth may be pressing against other teeth, which can cause those teeth to shift out of alignment. They could also be damaging the jaw bone or increasing the risk for gum disease. Removing the wisdom teeth is often the best course of action.

Wisdom teeth don’t always cause pain, which is why our team 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 Cape Coral dental office today at (239) 574-2000 to schedule a consultation about wisdom teeth extractions.

Very nice and attentive staff. I needed a root canal and was able to get it done shortly after the exam and x-rays. The wait time was a little longer than expected but possibly because I was a new patient? Either way, Dr. Jordan was fantastic and explained everything that needed to be done and was gentle throughout the whole process. His assistant (Ira I believe) was amazing as well. I'll be back in a few days to get my crown put on. Thank you!!

I had 2 extractions, a root canal repair, and a crown placed. Both extractions were fast and painless, very well done, with properly injected anesthesia. The tooth that underwent a prior root canal (from a previous dental practice) was compromised and had cavity. The dentist removed the affected areas of the tooth and I was left with a small tooth "stump", which I consider to be better than nothing and I am especially happy with the cavity-free result. Lastly, the crown, the absolutely precious crown. I can't tell the difference between my crown and my actual teeth; my co-workers couldn't tell which was the crown either. The color was, in my opinion, spot on. I attached a photo so you can see for yourself (please ignore the teeth with metal filling in the back, it was from a prior orthodontic dental work and my hair towel). I am truly grateful for the great work that both the the dentist and dentist assistant performed. I was treated with respect and politeness. I had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Dr. Da Costa for anyone seeking dental work. Perfection!
