When should wisdom teeth be removed?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are located at the back of the mouth. They typically cause a great deal of pain as they begin to come in and can disrupt daily life. When this is the case, or they are impacted and causing pain, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth, we recommend a wisdom tooth extraction. If your wisdom teeth are causing concern, our Germantown dentist can examine and monitor your wisdom teeth to determine if removal is necessary.

What is the recovery time for oral surgery?

Recovery time for oral surgery varies depending on the procedure performed. Simple procedures like tooth extraction may only require a few days for initial healing, with complete recovery in a week or two, while more complex surgeries, such as dental implant placement, may take several weeks or months. After oral surgery, our team will provide post-op instructions for you to follow for a smooth and safe recovery.

Is oral surgery covered by insurance?

Dental insurance plans can vary. Basic procedures like tooth extraction are often covered, while more complex dental surgery like dental implants may have limited coverage. If an oral surgery procedure is part of your treatment plan and you plan to pay with insurance, it’s essential to review your insurance policy details. At Riverstone Dental Center, we are insurance friendly and in-network with many insurance plans. We can help you navigate insurance or learn about our other financial options.
