wisdom teeth removal in anchorage means no more pain and a great looking smile

Wisdom tooth pain is a frequent issue, often due to the teeth struggling to break through the gums. Statistics show that about 90% of people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth. Extracting these teeth can often provide relief and prevent future dental problems. Most individuals expect to need this procedure eventually, and at Mint Dental, we emphasize the necessity of these extractions.

Whether you’re enduring ongoing pain or discomfort while chewing or touching the affected area, wisdom tooth pain can be concerning and debilitating. Don’t hesitate if you’re in pain—our skilled dentists at Mint Dental in Anchorage are ready to assist with your wisdom teeth removal.


What causes wisdom tooth pain?

Many people experience pain from their wisdom teeth. While some can accommodate these new molars just fine, most people don’t have enough space, leading to impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth might not cause immediate issues for some, but for many, they bring a lot of pain and potential health risks. When wisdom teeth get impacted, they can cause inflammation, making you more prone to infections and swelling. Since these teeth are so close to your facial muscles, it often results in jaw and gum pain.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, you can visit Mint Dental to have a thorough exam to determine if your wisdom teeth are the cause. We’ll also help you develop a treatment plan to restore your oral health and ease discomfort.

Benefits of wisdom tooth removal

No more pain

If you’re suffering from wisdom tooth pain, removal will relieve the symptoms, take the pressure off your gums and surrounding teeth, and make daily activities like chewing and talking more comfortable.

Improved oral health

Because wisdom teeth are located at the very back of the mouth and rarely erupt normally, reaching them to brush and floss can be challenging. Inadequate cleaning makes the area more susceptible to plaque build-up which, in turn, can lead to gum disease and infection.

Better breath

One of the most frequent issues caused by impacted wisdom teeth is bad breath. As the gum tissue deteriorates, it becomes easier for excess bacteria to get trapped, which not only jeopardizes your health but also leads to other uncomfortable symptoms, including an unpleasant odor.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

The procedure is  performed at our office, meaning you can return home once it’s over. Just make sure to arrange to have someone drive you home as you likely won’t be able to drive safely on your own right after your procedure.

The extraction is performed by:

  • Administering anesthetic and possibly sedation, so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort
  • Removing the overlying gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth
  • Extracting the wisdom teeth
  • Stitching up the gums
  • Giving you a detailed recovery plan before you leave
