Wisdom Teeth Removal in Escondido

Expert care for teenagers and adults

Over 20% of adults still have one or more wisdom teeth. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth are notorious for causing pain, soreness, crowding, and other problems — especially as you get older. It’s the reason so many people opt to get their wisdom teeth removed as teenagers!

No matter your age, if you have questions about your wisdom teeth or are ready to have them removed, our expert team is here to help. We rely on high-tech digital x-rays and years of experience to evaluate your risk of wisdom tooth complications and make the best recommendation for your health.

Do wisdom teeth always need to be removed?

It depends on your unique situation. Wisdom tooth extractions are common, but they’re still a form of surgery and do require some recovery time. In general, we recommend extracting wisdom teeth if they’re:

  • Causing significant pain or discomfort
  • Making it hard to brush or floss and keep your teeth clean
  • Crowding other teeth and causing a misaligned bite

If your wisdom teeth aren’t causing problems, a wait-and-see approach might be right for you. Conversely, if you’re facing a complex situation — such as severely impacted wisdom teeth — we may refer you to an oral surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome.

Remember: we take an individualized approach. We aim to understand your needs and help you make the best possible choice for your health and wellness.

Karin R.

My husband Gary recently had a new crown made at TLC Dental using a state of the art machine called Cerec. The entire procedure was completed in just a few hours start to finish and the crown is absolutely beautiful! One visit that was it! I can’t tell you how grateful he was to miss only a few hours of work to have this procedure done in 1 visit!  As my husband always tells me they are the best dentist we have ever had. So lucky to call them ours! Thank you TLC!

Reyes and his assistant. He was very knowledgeable and provided excellent service. Dr. Reyes and his staff made me feel comfortable. They were thorough about the whole procedure and provided great details about the extractions, insurance coverage, and recovery time. Overall, I’m happy I decided to get my wisdom teeth taken out with Dr. Reyes. I highly recommend TLC!

Frequently asked questions

Are you asleep during wisdom teeth removal?

Many people don’t need or want to be fully sedated — especially for a simple wisdom teeth extraction. If you have impacted wisdom teeth or another complex situation, deeper sedation — like general anesthesia — may be recommended by your oral surgeon.

Is wisdom tooth removal painful?

Your comfort is always our top priority. We ensure you’re properly numb before we begin your extraction and work quickly and gently. After the procedure, you may experience some soreness as your mouth heals. We’ll provide you with tips for minimizing discomfort.

How many days off do you need for wisdom teeth removal?

We typically recommend reserving three days for wisdom teeth recovery. You may not need that many, or you might want more. Additionally, we’ll ask you to avoid spitting and using straws for at least 10 days after your procedure.
