Wisdom Teeth Removal for Children and Teens

Learn More About Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last to erupt, usually between ages 15 and 25. Often, there isn’t enough space for them to emerge properly, leading to potential complications such as infection, crowding, bone loss, and cysts. At Adventure Dental, we’re equipped with an on-site oral surgeon, Dr. Josh Ely, who specializes in evaluating and addressing wisdom teeth concerns. With a team that includes pediatric and orthodontic experts, we’re prepared to provide comprehensive advice on whether and when wisdom teeth removal is appropriate for your child.

Procedure and Recovery

Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine procedure, typically completed within 1 to 2 hours at our office. Depending on the case, we may use nitrous oxide and local anesthesia to ensure your child’s comfort. Recovery usually spans 2-3 days, with post-operative care involving minimal physical activity, avoiding disturbance of the extraction site, gentle oral care, applying ice, and administering recommended pain relief. We provide detailed guidance to support a smooth recovery process for your child.
