Wisdom Teeth Removal
in Richmond

The wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to erupt. Unfortunately, a large number of teens and young adults don’t have enough jaw space for these back molars to emerge correctly. Because the wisdom teeth often cause more harm than good, it is common to take a proactive approach and remove the teeth before serious complications occur.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Richmond

Through advanced digital imaging, Dr. Tse can determine if you are a candidate for wisdom teeth removal. He can tell if your wisdom teeth are coming in sideways or have the potential to erupt partially or get impacted below the gum line. Without oral surgery, these situations can produce major threats to your surrounding teeth, bone and tissues. In fact, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to the following:

  • Misalignment
  • Painful jaw cyst
  • Swelling
  • Bone loss
  • Infection

When it comes to your wisdom teeth extraction procedure, you can trust that you are in good hands at Short Pump Family Dentistry. Dr. Tse uses modern and conservative techniques to safely remove these back molars while minimizing your discomfort. Our office is equipped to offer sedation dentistry as well as other amenities to keep you relaxed. Before you leave, Dr. Tse will instruct you on how to care for your extraction sites at home. Most patients make a full recovery within a few days.
