Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. Dentists recommend
patients have their wisdom teeth removed when they begin to compromise your oral health.
Wisdom teeth may partially emerge, grow at various angles and even be completely hidden
beneath the gum and bone. Poorly positioned or impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and
discomfort, teeth crowding, damage the jaw bone, and make you vulnerable to gum disease-
causing bacteria. In most cases, wisdom teeth extraction solves these issues. Your dentist may
recommend early removal to avoid such problems.
Typically, wisdom teeth removal is performed under general anesthesia. We will discuss
surgical risks will with you before the extraction takes place. You will recover from the
anesthesia under our supervision in the office until you are ready to be taken home. Upon
discharge, your post-operative kit will include postop instructions and a follow-up appointment
in one week. You will also receive any required prescriptions.

I just knew [Dr. Bailey] was the right guy for the job. I got in, I got out, pain-free. It was just the type of atmosphere that I liked, and at the same time, he did just a great job.”
