Wisdom Teeth Removal Princeton, NJ
Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma, DDS, PhD with her staff

Wisdom teeth typically come in between the ages of 15-25. They are referred to as “wisdom” teeth because of the wise years of becoming an adult. While not everyone grows wisdom teeth, most people do. Wisdom teeth removal is the most common oral surgery, done to correct or prevent problems with these extra teeth.

The mouth is generally only able to hold 28 permanent teeth. Frequent problems with the arrival of the additional wisdom teeth include:

  • Crowding of the adjacent teeth
  • Irritated, swollen, and/or infected gums
  • Bad breath
  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw bone damage
  • Headaches

X-rays allow dentists to keep an eye on the development of the wisdom teeth. These X-rays let dentist know the position of the wisdom teeth and when they are likely to try to erupt inside the mouth. Wisdom teeth removal is best done as a preventative procedure, by addressing issues before they become significant problems. Patients also recover faster and easier if the wisdom teeth are extracted before they have time to establish deep roots within the mouth.

It is normal for people to feel anxiety, and even fear, over having any type of surgical procedure done. Wisdom teeth removal is the most well-known oral surgery, and it is done as an out-patient procedure. Proper anesthesia will keep patients relaxed and comfortable. Once the wisdom teeth have been removed, dissolvable sutures will be used to close the spaces where they teeth were extracted. Post-operative instructions are given to promote quick healing, and most patients are feeling well after a few short days.

At Prime Dental Care, we are pleased to provide exceptional and comprehensive dentistry services to all our patients. Please contact us with any of your dental concerns or to schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving you.

Ms P.

My husband has been going to Dr Ma and this practice for many years and swears by them so I thought I would try it out. Very pleasant and professional with a great location and good availability, they respond to queries in a timely way and provide reminders for appointments via text which is great since some practices appear to be in the dark ages on some of the practical stuff. Everyone seems to try to ensure you have a pleasant visit (in spite of being to the dentist!) so kudos to the whole operation. Also, a lot of care has been taken to go above and beyond the requirements of hygiene during this pandemic including state-of-the-art air filtration systems.

Jay J.

Starting from reception to the assistant to the doctors they are so amazing. I have major dental anxiety and they were above and beyond sweet and nice to me. I have come back after a root canal and I can go for a run I feel that good and comfortable with them. They rock! They are awesome- I highly recommend this place
