Trust Your Dental Team
Wisdom teeth typically emerge during your late teens to early 20s as the final set of molars. However, it is common for wisdom teeth as they grow under the gum line to grow at an angle and become impacted. Badly angled wisdom teeth can affect neighboring molars and cause damage to your jawbone. Cysts and infections can develop as a result, creating larger problems that affect surrounding tissues and severe pain. As the time for your wisdom teeth approaches, your dentist will likely monitor their progress for signs of them growing impacted. If all signs point towards impacted wisdom teeth, it will be necessary to seek an evaluation with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon like Dr. Leslee Timm for wisdom tooth extractions.
Wisdom tooth extractions range from simple to complex depending on the unique needs of each patient. It’s important to trust your surgery to an expert in wisdom tooth extractions, jaw surgery, facial reconstruction, and complex facial structure treatments. Oral surgeons have long been the go-to specialists for wisdom tooth extractions and perform them on a regular basis. If you or your teen is experiencing pain, swelling, or swollen gums around the molars, we encourage you to reserve an evaluation of your wisdom teeth in La Crosse, WI at Coulee Region Implant & Oral Surgery Center with our experienced oral surgeon.

What is the Process for Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom teeth extractions are usually the first dental surgery our patients ever receive and it can bring about stress and anxiety. We understand and do everything possible to help you feel comfortable and at ease. We offer a variety of sedation options to help make your surgery calm and minimize pain. Our sedation options include:
During your exam, Dr. Timm will evaluate the nature of your wisdom teeth extractions and capture 3D scans of your mouth for an exact determination of the location and angle of your teeth. Imaging allows Dr. Timm to plan a customized treatment and ensure your surgery is efficient and minimally invasive. The day of your surgery, your dental team will provide anesthesia services to ensure a calm, pain-free procedure. Patients head home right after surgery with post-operative instructions including recovery care and what kinds of over-the-counter medications will work best for you. Patients normally experience swelling and a small amount of pain after surgery that can last up to a few days.
