Understanding Wisdom Teeth Removal

For New Patients

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop and emerge in your mouth, typically between the ages of 17 and 25. In many cases, these teeth can become impacted due to lack of space in the dental arch, leading to pain, infection, and other dental issues. At Dr. Curtis H. Roy & Associates, DDS, a dentist in Lafayette, LA, we specialize in the safe and effective removal of wisdom teeth to prevent and alleviate these problems.

Frequently Asked Questions About Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that typically emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood.

They often become impacted or cause crowding and other dental issues due to limited space in the mouth.

The ideal age is usually in the late teens to early twenties, as the roots are not fully developed, and recovery is generally quicker.

Most patients experience a recovery period of three to five days, with instructions provided for care and pain management.

As with any surgery, there are risks, but complications are rare, especially when performed by experienced oral surgeons.

The duration varies, but it generally takes about an hour for all four wisdom teeth.

We offer various sedation options, including general anesthesia, to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure.
