Tooth Extraction - Wisdom Tooth Removal in Hagerstown

Do I Need My Tooth Extracted?

The wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that erupt. Some people have them, but they don't erupt completely or at all. Wisdom teeth are usually removed due to discomfort or the health of neighboring teeth.

Wisdom teeth often cause problems in adjacent teeth because of a lack of space. To prevent wisdom tooth problems, our dentist in Hagerstown may recommend removing them before issues arise. Doing so helps prevent infections like gum disease, decay, or crowded teeth.

Sedation Available During Wisdom Tooth Removal

Dr. Storch is a licensed sedation dentist with over 20 years of experience. As such, we offer in-house oral sedation to ensure a comfortable experience for our wisdom tooth removal patients. 

When Wisdom Teeth Should Be Removed

Most dentists recommend that wisdom teeth be removed before they cause unwelcome side effects. This is usually high school or before college, but some people wait until they are adults before having their wisdom teeth out.

Wisdom teeth continue developing well into your 20s and are usually fully grown by age 30, so it is best to have them removed as soon as symptoms develop.

Dr. Claudia Storch will routinely assess your wisdom teeth during checkups to ensure we get ahead of any issues before pain or infections develop.

Should You Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth removal reduces the chance of painful flare-ups throughout the year, which is especially important for high school and college students. With ample planning, the surgery can be performed at a time that’s most convenient for your family, which is essential if you’re an adult or have small children that you’re caring for.

Our cosmetic dentist in Hagerstown will examine your wisdom tooth development at regular intervals. We may recommend wisdom tooth extraction if there are any concerns or complications starting to develop. Thanks to digital X-rays, we can thoroughly evaluate the positioning and stage of wisdom tooth development as early as possible.
