Wisdom Teeth Removal in Southfield, MI

Do You Need Your Impacted Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Your wisdom teeth are known as your third set of molars — the toughest of them all and meant for chewing your food. However, some people have issues with their wisdom teeth. Our mouths don’t necessarily have enough room for these extra sets of molars, which causes them to impact our other teeth.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, damage to your other teeth, and other potential dental problems in the future. If your third molars are impacted, Dr. Darlene Daniels-Dixon will help you set up an appointment to get them removed. This procedure is quick and easy at our Southfield office and our team will help you get through every step of the way.

How We Remove Wisdom Teeth

Here at Dixon Family Dental, Dr. Darlene safely and gently removes wisdom teeth that may be impacted, so your teeth can have sufficient space in your mouth. Here’s exactly how the procedure will go:

  1. We’ll first provide you with a local anesthetic to help ease any sensation so the treatment is nearly painless. This will also keep you calm and comfortable while we extract your teeth.
  2. Once the anesthesia sets in, Dr. Darlene will gently and efficiently remove your wisdom tooth from the gum tissue.
  3. After your wisdom tooth or teeth are removed, we will carefully seal up the surgical area and you’ll begin the healing process.
