Wisdom Teeth Removal
Imray and Gesek DMD, PA, where exceptional care and experience combine.
What if I don’t have my wisdom teeth removed as a teenager or young adult?
As wisdom teeth develop, the roots become longer and the jaw bone more dense. When it is necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth in your thirties, forties or beyond, the post-operative course can be prolonged and there is a higher complication rate. Treating these complications is often more difficult and less predictable than with a younger patient. Healing may be slower and the chance of infection can be increased. If your impacted wisdom teeth are not removed in your teenage years or early in your twenties and they are completely impacted in bone, it may be advisable to wait until a localized problem (such as cyst formation or localized gum disease and bone loss) develops. In general, you will heal faster, more predictably and have fewer complications if treated in your teens or early twenties.

Patient Review by Peggy W
We have come to Imray & Gesek several times over the past 5 years. First to have 6 teeth removed from my son before braces (2 were extra teeth), then later when he fractured his jaw playing soccer. My son now has now had 7 more teeth removed (six wisdom teeth & another extra tooth) by this office. They have been very courteous & helpful over the years.

Dr. Gesek was great! He displays so much confidence and professionalism mixed with genuine care and friendliness. I felt completely at ease in the teams hands. After my procedure I healed so quick and barely had any pain or swelling from my 4 extractions. I would 10/10 recommend.

The staff made me feel comfortable before the Wisdom Teeth procedure. The aftercare instructions were easy to follow and the recoup time was minimal. The follow up appointment was quick and they made sure the area was healing well.
