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?

    When a wisdom tooth doesn’t have enough room to come in normally, it is considered an impacted wisdom tooth. Depending on where the teeth lie within the jaw, there are several degrees of impacted wisdom teeth. These degrees include soft tissue, partially bony, and complete bony impaction.

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

    It’s important to note that every patient is unique and may have individualized needs regarding their wisdom teeth. However, some common indications suggest the need for wisdom teeth removal, such as impaction, changes in bite alignment, crowding or damage to existing teeth, and partial emergence. Experts recommend removing wisdom teeth early, before the roots and bone fully form, to ensure a faster recovery.
