The removal of wisdom teeth is commonly considered a rite of passage for many individuals between the ages of 16 and 25. As these third molars erupt (or remain impacted), they take up space inside the mouth and often cause discomfort and problems for your healthy teeth. At Costello & DeHart Dental Excellence, we want to eliminate any pain and keep smiles damage-free, and we can do this with wisdom tooth extractions in Arlington Heights. Call our office if you or your teen might benefit from this form of treatment.

The Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process

There are two ways a wisdom tooth can be removed. If it has partially erupted and is visible above the gumline, we can use specially designed instruments to gently move the tooth back and forth until it detaches from the ligaments holding it in place. If the tooth is impacted, meaning it exists beneath the gumline, we will need to create an opening in the gums and extract the tooth in sections to prevent further damage to the underlying bone.

Both options – simple and surgical – will be completed with the help of local anesthesia, which will be administered before the start of the procedure.
