Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Houston, TX

A patient's last two molars, which often develop during the later adolescent years, are called wisdom teeth. Located at the back of each arch, wisdom teeth, which are also known as the third molars, do not typically have enough room to comfortably emerge, are difficult to keep healthy, and may require an extraction to maintain overall oral health. Wisdom teeth can be impacted (stuck in the gum tissues or jawbone), misaligned, or unable to develop all the way, leading to many dental problems. Dr. Palmer offers wisdom teeth extractions for Houston, TX individuals to improve oral health and protect against jaw pain and decay. If you or your teen have problematic or unerupted wisdom teeth, schedule an appointment at Palmer Dental Group of Houston to learn more about your treatment options.

Palmer Dental Group of Houston performs wisdom teeth extractions while the patient is under mild anesthesia; however, this procedure may also be completed with oral-conscious or IV sedation services to increase relaxation. Most cases of wisdom teeth extractions require an excision technique, specifically if the teeth are impacted, have arched roots, or are tightly held within the jawbone tissue. After Dr. Palmer makes an incision in the gum tissues to access the impacted molar, he may split it into parts, which allows for a simpler extraction. Depending on your unique needs, each of the wisdom teeth may be taken out during a single procedure. Sutures may be used to protect the removal site and promote healing. Our team will give you aftercare guidelines to follow in the days after your procedure.

While wisdom teeth extractions may seem daunting, this dental procedure offers several benefits for your oral health. The benefits include:

  • Prevents overcrowding
  • Reduces pain and discomfort
  • Prevents infection
  • Protects against cysts and tumors
  • Improves oral hygiene

I had an exceptional experience at Dr. Palmer's dental practice. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted warmly and made to feel right at home. The office ambiance was modern and inviting, and the cleanliness was top-notch, which immediately put me at ease. Dr. Palmer and his dental hygienist, Victoria, were not only highly professional but also incredibly courteous throughout my visit. They took the time to explain each step of the process, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed at all times. What truly stood out to me was their attention to detail and their genuine care for their patients' well-being. One thoughtful touch that made my visit even more pleasant was the personalized welcome sign with my name on it—a small gesture that spoke volumes about their commitment to customer satisfaction. Additionally, being able to watch Netflix during my cleaning was a fantastic perk that helped me relax and feel more at ease. Overall, I couldn't be more satisfied with the level of service I received from Dr. Palmer and Victoria. I highly recommend this practice to anyone in search of quality dental care in a welcoming environment. Thank you, Dr. Palmer and Victoria, for your exceptional care!
