Wisdom Teeth Removal in Nashville, TN

Wisdom teeth are the last molars set, usually between 17 and 25. They can cause several oral health issues for many patients. Our dentists can visually examine your wisdom teeth (if they have erupted) or use X-ray imaging to assess if they need removal. If removal is necessary, general anesthesia is required, especially if you need to extract more than one wisdom tooth simultaneously.

We provide professional wisdom teeth removal services at Vitality Dental in Nashville, TN. We offer various dental sedation options to ensure a pain-free procedure. If you need more information, please feel free to call our office.

  • How do I relieve wisdom tooth pain?

    As wisdom teeth emerge from the jawbone and poke through the gums, they may cause inflammation or bleeding, leading to headaches and toothache. To alleviate the pain associated with wisdom teeth, you can try the following remedies:

    • Rinse your mouth with saltwater
    • Apply peppermint essential oil or clove oil to soothe the pain
    • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as aspirin
    • Place an ice pack or heating pad on your cheeks
  • What is an impacted wisdom tooth?

    An impacted wisdom tooth is a tooth that fails to fully emerge into the mouth due to a lack of space or improper alignment. This condition can cause the tooth to remain partially or entirely trapped beneath the gum line. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to pain, swelling, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. They are often identified through dental X-rays and may require removal to prevent further complications and maintain oral health. Regular dental check-ups can help monitor the development of wisdom teeth and determine if extraction is necessary.

  • How do I know if my wisdom teeth need removed?

    You may need your wisdom teeth removed if you experience symptoms such as pain, swelling, or infection in the back of your mouth. Other signs include difficulty opening your mouth, persistent bad breath, or an unpleasant taste due to trapped food and bacteria around the wisdom teeth. Your dentist can also detect issues through X-rays and examinations, such as impacted teeth, overcrowding, or damage to adjacent teeth. Regular dental check-ups are essential for monitoring the development of your wisdom teeth and determining if removal is necessary to maintain your oral health.
