Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Topeka, KS

Protecting Your Mouth from Wisdom Tooth Pain

Your wisdom teeth erupt much later than your other teeth, usually around the late teens or early adulthood. Unfortunately, because there is only so much room in your mouth, wisdom teeth often aren’t able to break through the gums, and as a result they can cause a lot of pain and lead to serious damage to your other teeth. If you call our Topeka office, Dr. Fox and the rest of our team can check on your wisdom teeth to see if an extraction is needed to protect the rest of your mouth.

When Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Really Necessary?

It’s not always necessary to remove the wisdom teeth. Sometimes there’s enough room in the mouth for them to erupt properly without any complications. So how will you know when an extraction is needed? A thorough examination is the most reliable method, but some telltale symptoms include:


  • Pain in the back of your mouth or in the jaw
  • Inflamed or bleeding gums
  • Cysts where the impacted wisdom teeth are located
  • Teeth that start to become crooked or overcrowded


Wisdom Tooth Extraction Aftercare

We’ll give you aftercare instructions to help ensure that the recovery process after wisdom tooth removal is as comfortable as possible. It’s important to rest as much as you can for the first few days. You can place a cold compress or ice pack on your face to reduce any swelling. Plan to eat only soft or liquid meals at first; stay away from hard, crunchy, or spicy foods that might irritate your tissues. Take any prescribed medications as directed.
