For most people, wisdom teeth grow in, if at all, during the late teens to early 20s. The majority of the time, they erupt only partially, or come in crooked, or become impacted. That’s why you need our Midtown extractions here at the office of Elliott Ostro DMD.
Timely action is essential. Problem wisdom teeth may damage your jaw bone, nerves, or surrounding teeth. Furthermore, you simply do not want to suffer with pain any longer than is absolutely necessary. Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure that the experience is comfortable, so you need not worry. You will not have any pain. You will only sense the pressure being exerted as part of the removal of the teeth. Our oral surgeon makes use of only the most advanced techniques and equipment as part of the procedure. It is not uncommon for wisdom teeth to be taken out in pieces. This is for the sake of efficiency, and you should not expect there to be any negative effect on you as a result. When the teeth have been removed, stitches will be placed and you will be given gauze to stem any residual bleeding, which is perfectly natural. Hold an ice pack on the outside of your mouth to manage any swelling, and take over-the-counter pain relief medication for discomfort that might arise after the anesthesia wears off. It is recommended that you maintain a soft diet for at least the first 24 hours after our Midtown extractions. Options like pudding, gelatin, and broth are ideal. Full healing could take up to a few days.
Don’t wait to schedule our Midtown extractions. As soon as you notice any signs of your wisdom teeth growing in, contact us right away, even if there is no pain involved yet. It’s better to be proactive.

Oral surgeon Manhattan
Wisdom teeth are the molars in the very back of the mouth and are the last teeth to erupt. Most wisdom teeth erupt in people between age 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth often need to be removed due to the problems they can create in the mouth with crowding or from the teeth becoming impacted. An impacted wisdom tooth can be very painful and need extraction by our oral surgeon Manhattan in order to avoid infection.
If the wisdom tooth becomes impacted and infected, it can be really painful and lead to crowding and damage of teeth close to it. Gums may swell, facial swelling may be an issue and extreme pain. If the wisdom tooth erupts too close to the existing tooth it can also be a problem. At the offices of Elliott Ostro, DMD, our oral surgeon Manhattan removes wisdom teeth as early as possible in order to save the need for future dental bills and issues with teeth. If there is not enough space in the dental arch, the tooth can become impacted. If the tooth is impacted a cyst can grow and permanently damage teeth around it as well as the bone and nerves.
If a wisdom tooth grows out and is not impacted, problems can still happen. The root of a wisdom tooth is extremely long and can make it harder to remove, making future complications a real concern. The best time to have our oral surgeon Manhattan remove wisdom teeth is when the patient is younger, because the root is not completely formed and thus is not as long, making it easier to get the tooth out. Also, the bone surrounding the tooth is softer. After surgery, slight pain may be experienced along with swelling and mild discomfort but the patient should not have any problems other than the normal.

In other cases, impacted teeth need to be removed for the begin to affect the other teeth in your mouth. This often happens with wisdom teeth. For the most part, humans no longer really need to use wisdom teeth which were once used to grind certain types of food. As the human brain grew slowly over time, the human jaw became smaller in order to accommodate for the growing size of the brain. As a result, there became a much smaller amount of space available for certain teeth, namely wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are known by this name because they generally developed during the ages between 18 and 21, if not later on in life. Wisdom teeth can often come in impacted or crooked because of this change in the size of the average human jaw. As impacted teeth grow and develop, they can severely affect the teeth that you already have, causing severe dental crowding and intensive oral pain. In this case, you will need to have your teeth removed, so if you need any Manhattan teeth extractions, then our dentist Elliott Ostro DMD can help. The procedure used to remove wisdom teeth will differ depending on the stage of development that your teeth are currently in. Some wisdom teeth may be removed before they even erupt from the gums, which is preferable when it comes to impacted wisdom teeth, but even individuals whose wisdom teeth are not crooked might need to have them removed in order to prevent the likelihood of developing tooth decay or gum disease.
