Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Park Forest Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center – Arlington TX

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

What Is An Impacted Tooth?

Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth. When inadequate space prevents the teeth from erupting they are called impacted. This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.

Types Of Impactions

We will need to see you for a consultation to determine if you will benefit from wisdom tooth removal. A special x-ray of your mouth and jaws (panorex) will be taken to determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted, if there is room for them to erupt, and how difficult it will be to have them removed.

  • Soft Tissue Impaction: There is not enough room to allow the gum tissue to retract for adequate cleaning of the tooth.
  • Partial Bony Impaction: There is enough space to allow the wisdom tooth to partially erupt. However, the tooth cannot function properly in the chewing process, and creates cleaning problems, among others.
  • Complete Bony Impaction: There is NO space for the tooth to erupt. It remains embedded in the jaw bone or if even partially visible requires complex surgical techniques for removal.The impacted wisdom tooth may also be in an unusual position and difficult to remove. This situation can also arise when the shape or size of the jaw bone and other facial structures make removal of this tooth significantly more complex.

I have no idea why people make such a big deal about getting wisdom teeth out because in this office, it's super easy, virtually painless, and a fast recovery! I guess they should have gone to Park Forest. ­čÖé

An amazing experience to have my wisdom teeth extraction go so well. Granted, everyone that would have to consider this procedure will be different and their particular situation will be varied, but I experienced NO pain...not during the procedure, not in recovery, and not even after all the anesthesia wore after I had returned home. NO PAIN!

This is the second time my family has used Dr. Ismaili for wisdom teeth extractions. He is the best! He gives a personal touch to his services. He walked me to the car and the personal phone call the night of the surgery is so nice. Thanks!

I would highly recommend Dr. Ismail to all of my friends. My sons will be making appointments to have their wisdom teeth taken out as well. The staff made me feel like I was not only a patient but part of an extended family. They even called and check on my 4 times after surgery including the day of.

I had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted and never felt any pain! This was my first ever surgery of any kind, and I was really anxious about it beforehand after hearing countless horror stories from my friends, but Dr. Ismaili and his staff were very kind, and he did an amazing job. I highly recommend him!

Is it possible to love your wisdom teeth removal experience? Park Forest Oral Surgery exceeded my expectations! I chose this place because of the positive reviews and they were not wrong. From the initial appointment, everything went smooth and everything was explained to me. I was very nervous for the surgery but was put at ease by Dr. Ismaili and his staff. He even called to check on me after surgery. I am so glad that I found this place and will be back should I ever need any other oral procedure. They made sure I was comfortable which to me was very important because I've always had a fear of anything to do with dentists ( so much I have procrastinated my wisdom teeth removal until I was 25). Wisdom teeth surgery would not seem so scary and intimidating if everyone had a team like I did. Thank you Park Forest!
