The Krupp Center will provide the safest, most comfortable extraction procedure possible. Even though many fear removing their wisdom teeth, at the Krupp Center, you can expect considerate, efficient dental care from our team every time.
Impacted wisdom teeth are frequently among the many conditions that require oral surgery. As a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Krupp is eminently qualified to remove your wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth, otherwise known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop. Sometimes these teeth emerge from the gum line, and the jaw is large enough to allow room for them, but this is not the case most of the time. More often, one or more of these third molars fails to emerge in proper alignment or fails to emerge fully through the gum line and becomes entrapped or "impacted" between the jawbone and the gum tissue.
Impacted wisdom teeth can result in swelling, pain, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. In addition, impacted wisdom teeth can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to cysts or tumors that can destroy jaw sections. Therefore, dentists recommend people with impacted wisdom teeth have them surgically removed.

What type of post-treatment care will I need to follow?
Post-operative care following a tooth extraction is essential for healing and preventing complications. You will be instructed to avoid certain foods and also keep the surgical site clean at all times. If you are prescribed an antibiotic, it is crucial that you complete the course of treatment to prevent infection. Finally, you may be advised to avoid smoking or drinking through a straw, as doing so may delay the healing process and cause complications.
