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.

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!

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!!!

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.

Patient Review By Stephanie H
We were accidental patients when my son broke his jaw a couple of years ago. Dr. Ismaili and his staff took care of us very quickly and got my son fixed up and on the road to recovery quickly. He healed up with no problems. When it came time to get his wisdom teeth removed, there was no question on who we wanted to take care of him. Wisdom teeth extraction went great and another quick healing.

Patient Review By Carol- Ann W
I am a military veteran and have a service connected injury. Dr. Ismaili has provided me with excellent plan of care which was above and beyond my expectations. Now, I can function with little or no pain and coping better with the disability, since the VA was unable to help me. The staff is very friendly and their customer service is exceptional. Dr. Ismaili took care of my son and he was very patient, in explaining the procedure, answering all his questions, alleviated his fears and called later that night after the procedure to see how he was doing. This is the best dental experience I ever had.
