Dream-Dentistry & Sleep Care is here to answer all of your questions about the removal of your wisdom teeth, starting with this one: Will it hurt? The answer is no.
We’ll treat you with anything from a cozy blanket to sedation dentistry to maintain your comfort. Some dentists have to send their patients out to a specialist, but Dr. Roeder and Dr. Kulp at Dream-Dentistry have all the oral surgery training and experience necessary to remove your wisdom teeth here, so you don’t have to go to a strange office you’ve never been to before. Dr. Roeder completed the Anesthesiology training program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical & Dental School while Dr. Kulp took advanced studies in oral sedation and implants.
Wisdom teeth show up late to the party. They’re your third set of molars that typically don’t come in until after you turn 17. You might not even know you need them removed until Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp mentions it at one of your biannual dental exams. But some signs can be:
Most of us will have our wisdom teeth removed at some point because they tend to come in at an angle or cause crowding. They can be blocked by your other molars, also known as impacted wisdom teeth. Call us for a comprehensive dental exam so we can tell you if yours need removal.
