Impacted Wisdom Teeth in Gilbert

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.

Wisdom Teeth Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of wisdom teeth, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to wisdom teeth are discussed.

What Is An Impacted Tooth?

Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth. When inadequate space prevents the teeth from erupting they are called impacted. This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.

We will need to see you for a consultation to determine if you will benefit from wisdom tooth removal. A special x-ray of your mouth and jaws (panorex) will be taken to determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted, if there is room for them to erupt, and how difficult it will be to have them removed.

  • Soft Tissue Impaction: There is not enough room to allow the gum tissue to retract for adequate cleaning of the tooth.
  • Partial Bony Impaction: There is enough space to allow the wisdom tooth to partially erupt. However, the tooth cannot function properly in the chewing process, and creates cleaning problems, among others.
  • Complete Bony Impaction: There is NO space for the tooth to erupt. It remains embedded in the jaw bone or if even partially visible requires complex surgical techniques for removal.The impacted wisdom tooth may also be in an unusual position and difficult to remove. This situation can also arise when the shape or size of the jaw bone and other facial structures make removal of this tooth significantly more complex.

You can stop your search and book with Dr. Kelly. Behind the Scottsdale-esque trendy branding (a nice touch) is a team of professionals full of substance who will make you feel like you're about to drop $10,000 on VIP bottle service. The process moves at just the right pace, fast enough to keep your anxiety from overwhelming you but not so fast that you feel like you're in a rush to order a drink at last call. The staff - You will interact with different departments (check in, consultation, financing, etc...) At best you'll get a salt of the earth team member who will make you feel like you're part of the family. At worst, you'll still get a friendly professional who understands she works at an elite institution (even if she may not be feeling very elite that day). And yes, Dr Kelly absolutely called me after hours when my pharmacy botched an order and he offered to call in to a 24 hour pharmacy. God bless Dr. Kelly and his staff. Gone are the days of the scary dentist visit and dare I I'm looking forward to my next visit. They will take care of you like you're a A-list celebrity visiting old town, even if your only claim to fame is having a poor flossing routine.
