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.
Wisdom Teeth Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of wisdom teeth, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to wisdom teeth are discussed.
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.

Patient Review By Doranna C
Thank you for being so prompt. I have never had a doctor who did his own IV's nor escorted me to my car after the procedure. Very personal attention. It was nice to not have to be in the waiting room for extended periods of time.

Dr. Ismaili and his staff are exceptional. All three of my sons have gotten their wisdom teeth extracted at the Park Forest clinic. Each time we were treated with professionalism and compassion.

Dr. Ismaili and his staff got me in so quickly! They were able to schedule my appointment, then my surgery within a few days of me calling. I was nervous but the lovely staff helped me calm my nerves before going under. They check in after to make sure you’re doing okay. They were even kind enough to schedule me in sooner after for a check up since I had to go back to Vegas. Definitely a great experience! Thank you!

Dr. Ismaili is very pleasant, professional and kind. He made me feel at ease about the wisdom teeth removal and everything was much easier than I even expected. He called me the following morning to check in, which I appreciated. The office staff and assistants are very good - friendly, professional and caring. All in all, there were no negatives at all in my experience. I highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Dr. Ismaili and his staff were great during my daughters wisdom teeth procedure. They called to check up on her & even when I had to call Dr. Ismaili after hours right after Thanksgiving, with a concern I had, he got right with me and answered my questions and put me at ease. Thank you so much Park Forest Oral Surgery!

Patient Review By Caroline S
Dr. Ismail is amazing!! My mom brought me here for wisdom teeth removal. The entire process was a breeze from beginning to end! His staff are professional, considerate and genuinely care about their patients. My mom brought my brother here several years ago, and nothing has changed! Again, he is an amazing and considerate doctor. You cannot put a price on excellent skills and care!! I would recommend him hands down over choosing anyone!!!

Patient Review By Katherine W
Everyone from the start to finish were some of the friendliest staff I've met anywhere ever. I felt at ease the whole time and that I was in capable, caring hands. Everything went well with my procedure as well and I received a personal phone call from Dr. Ismaili to see how I was doing afterwards. Probably the best experience I've ever had with any medical/dental procedure.
