Alleviate wisdom tooth pain and protect your smile!

Wisdom tooth pain is extremely common, and it’s usually caused by some degree of impaction. In fact, it’s estimated that 90% of people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth. In many cases, wisdom tooth extraction is the best way to relieve pain and prevent further dental issues in the future.  Most people accept that wisdom teeth extraction services will happen at some point in their life and at Mint Dental Alaska, we also want our patients to know the extractions are necessary. 

Whether you’re dealing with constant pain or discomfort associated with chewing and touching the area, wisdom tooth pain can be worrying and even debilitating. If you’re experiencing pain, don’t wait! Our incredible Mint Dental Anchorage wisdom tooth removal dentists are here to help.

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 so we can determine if your wisdom teeth are the cause. We’ll also help you develop a treatment plan to restore your oral health and ease your discomfort.

Benefits of wisdom tooth removal

No more pain

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

Improved oral health

Because wisdom teeth are set so far back in the mouth and rarely erupt normally, cleaning the area adequately on a daily basis can be especially tricky. Not being able to properly clean the area leaves you at a far greater risk of developing excess plaque, which can lead to gum disease and other negative health conditions.

Better breath

Bad breath is one of the most common side effects of impacted wisdom teeth because, as the gum tissue becomes compromised, excess bacteria can easily become trapped. This not only puts your health at risk, but it also causes other unpleasant symptoms, including a foul odor.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

The procedure is usually outpatient, meaning that you should be able to go home the same day. 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 a general anesthetic so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort
  • Removing the overlying gum tissue surrounding your wisdom teeth
  • Removing your wisdom teeth
  • Stitching up your gums
  • Giving you a detailed recovery plan once you wake up
