Wisdom Teeth Removal

The wisdom teeth are often problematic molars that need to be removed when they appear in the late teens or early twenties. At Westinghouse Dental, we offer gentle wisdom teeth removal for our patients that have issues with these final molars. We offer sedation options to make this procedure as comfortable as possible, including IV sedation. Wisdom teeth are the four rear molars that come in at the end of your oral growth cycle. The problem with these molars is there is often not enough room for them in the mouth to fit comfortably. Due to this issue, the wisdom teeth may grow in crooked; some teeth point toward the front of the gum or toward other teeth instead of emerging through the top of the gum. This is referred to as an impacted wisdom tooth and removal is usually the best restorative dentistry option. If a wisdom tooth becomes impacted or grows incorrectly, it can cause many oral health issues. It can cause misalignment of the existing teeth or bite, requiring orthodontic care to fix. They can also become infected or put pressure on the sinuses. Due to these complications, if there are any signs your wisdom teeth may cause problems, we will suggest removal.

Gentle Wisdom Tooth Extraction

          While no one looks forward to having a tooth removed for any reason, our team at Westinghouse Dental can make your wisdom teeth removal procedure as stress free as possible. In most cases, all four wisdom teeth are removed at one time. Due to the invasive nature of this procedure, we offer IV sedation which can put you into a deeply relaxed state while we perform the extractions. You will be conscious, but most people do not remember the procedure after they come out of sedation. Our doctors are experienced in oral Surgery procedures and provide excellent restorative dental services in Georgetown, TX.

 

Cost of this procedure:

Cost of wisdom teeth extractions can range from $295-$450/tooth depending on how far it is inside a jaw bone (more it is covered by bone, more it costs). Most people decide to remove all four wisdom teeth along with IV sedation in that way they have no memory of surgical procedure. IV sedation does cost extra. Your PPO insurance usually pays portion of this and you are responsible for your copay. 

If you or your child is facing wisdom teeth removal, contact us today for an appointment and come see us at Westinghouse Dental. We offer gentle wisdom teeth removal with sedation in a comfortable, caring atmosphere.

  • This was my first time and I had an awesome experience. Customer service was great! The receptionist was very helpful and explained everything thoroughly. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for dental care. The Dentist and the tech were also very gentle, helpful, and they care about their patients.

  • It’s rare to receive a thorough and sincere visit to medical professionals, but I have found the anomaly with this office. The office was pristine and clean. The technology they used did not feel like your average dentist office. Quick appointment response time for confirmation and multiple ways to remind a busy person. I was greeted warmly when I entered the office. My “assistant” was/is phenomenal. The dentist was emotionally intelligent and did not go further than what I was comfortable with. A pleasant experience is almost too simple of a phrase to describe what my experience was. It is couture to patients who don’t feel pushed to do everything all at once, happy employees which means they also feel valued, and their patience are what makes them unique. Finally thank you Starla for the smiles and laughs, Dr. Wichita for your gentleness, the assistant who provided technical assistance, and to my ROCKSTAR dental assistant, she was a peaceful advocate for feeling comfort and providing a beautiful experience from the time I was called back for my exam until my final departure. Then she double downed and did a follow up call the following day. I found a gem and I am here to stay!

  • This place is amazing!!! I have always had a lot of anxiety going to the dentist due to past experiences, but after going here I can say my anxiety has lessened! Courtney was so gentle and caring while cleaning my teeth! I barely felt it and had no discomfort after! I will definitely be seeing her again in 6 months! Dr Wicheta explained everything step by step that I needed to take care of and put my fears at ease! I would give them more than 5 stars if I could!!!

  • We were visiting from out of town and my son had a dental emergency. Dr. Wicheta and his staff were kind enough to see us that afternoon. Everyone was extremely comforting and helped calm the situation. My son received excellent medical care and I am very grateful for this Doctor and his team. I recommend Westinghouse Dental because they care about their patients and provide high quality service.
