What Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Our final set of teeth, which usually emerge in the later adolescent years, are called wisdom teeth or the third molars. Positioned in the back ends of each arch, wisdom teeth often don't have adequate space to emerge efficiently, are hard to keep clean, and may require extraction to preserve general oral wellness. Board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Matthew Hlavacek and Dr. Jason Baker provide wisdom tooth extraction for Kansas City, MO patients to enhance dental health and defend against malocclusion and deterioration. If you or a member of your family have problematic or impacted wisdom teeth, call for an exam at Kansas City Surgical Arts to find out about your care solutions.

What Is the Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process?

Kansas City Surgical Arts performs third molar extractions while you are under local anesthesia; however, this surgery could also be done with oral-conscious or IV sedation services to ensure comfort. Many instances of wisdom teeth removal necessitate an excision approach, especially if the teeth are ingrown, have misshapen roots, or are firmly situated in the bone tissue. When Dr. Hlavacek and Dr. Baker make an incision in the gum tissues to get to the tooth, they will often separate it into individual pieces, enabling an easier extraction. Based on your unique situation, all four of the wisdom teeth could be removed in the same session. Sutures may be added afterward to aid in healing. You will then be given post-operative tips to follow during the next few days.

Wonderful from start to finish! Answered all of my questions clearly and kept me calm during my wisdom teeth removal. Cheaper cost than I expected as well which is a bonus. Would recommend 100%!

First time at this location. Daughter was treated with care by all staff. They were all attentive and courteous. Dr. Baker, thank you, for taking the time to explain every step and for following up on my daughter, in the evening. She did really well with her wisdom teeth extraction. She had no side effects at all. Thank you!!
