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.

I'm so grateful to have found this office. I needed extensive work done and have a fear of dental procedures. Dr. Cavola has been a god send ( sounds cheesy I know). He has been very kind and compassionate, went over my procedure with me and actually listened to my questions. Surgery went well and he even saw me today because of my irrational concerns and he didn't make me feel stupid for seeing him ( plus we were able to talk directly to HIM on the phone yesterday). And not only the the dr awesome but his office staff and nurses are great too I will be recommending him to all of my friends and family and will be seeing him for any future work that I need.

I have grown a fear of having dental work done. Thankfully i was referred to Capital Oral & Facial Surgery for 4 teeth to be pulled! They had only been crowned a few short years ago. My tmj kills me and I can't open my mouth too wide. This entire office staff assured me of no pain today and said all the right things to try to ease my anxiety which was over a 10! Thanks everyone for getting me through!!!!!!

really can't say enough good things about Dr. Ahmad and his staff at Capital Oral and Facial Surgery. If you need wisdom teeth removed this is the place to go. I had all four of mine removed by Dr. Ahmad about two weeks ago. It was a great experience I have to say. After hearing all the horror stories from family and friends it is easy to expect the worst. I'm happy to say it was a very pleasant experience. I don't remember any of the procedure. After the procedure I really did not have any pain and would have been okay with no pain medicine. I put this procedure off for years and seemed to have lucked out with Dr. Ahmad. Really cool guy. He even called me to check on me later the day of the surgery. I certainly plan on returning to Capital Oral and Facial in the future, should the need arise. On another note...the anesthesia is the best sleep you'll ever have. -Antwan
