Prevent oral health complications with a wisdom tooth extraction in Indianapolis!
At Cornerstone Family Dentistry, we prioritize protecting your natural teeth. We only recommend tooth extraction when it is genuinely necessary for your dental health.
One common type of tooth extraction is the removal of wisdom teeth. These teeth typically emerge during late adolescence or early adulthood and can disrupt oral health.
Not everyone requires wisdom tooth removal, but it’s often the best solution for oral health reasons. Extracting wisdom teeth prevents tooth crowding and other dental issues, particularly if we extract them before they fully erupt.
Our skilled team at Cornerstone Family Dentistry will evaluate your smile and help you determine if you need wisdom tooth removal. Schedule a wisdom tooth extraction consultation today!
Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?
If you’re contemplating wisdom tooth extraction in Indianapolis, here are some of the ways wisdom teeth can impact your dental health:
Severe pain in the back of your mouth
Irritated or inflamed gums
Cysts or lesions caused by erupting wisdom teeth
Crowding of adjacent teeth
Cavities or decay in the rear molars
Once wisdom teeth emerge, they disrupt the alignment of your other teeth. By crowding your mouth, they may impede proper cleaning. Our wisdom tooth dentist will assess the position of your teeth through X-rays and determine if extraction is best for you. If removal is necessary, we try to extract them before any complications arise.
Post-Wisdom Tooth Extraction Care
Following wisdom tooth removal, you may experience swelling, pain, and discomfort. However, maintaining excellent dental hygiene is vital for the healing process. Neglecting proper oral care increases the risk of complications, like dry sockets or infections.
Our dental team provides you with detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth after the procedure. Before your appointment, we guide you through everything you need to know. For example, avoid using a straw for at least 24 hours post-extraction because it increases the chances of dry sockets.

I absolutely love Dr. Sigg and his entire staff at Cornerstone. I’ve been a patient over 20 years. I left for a few years because I moved to the westside of town, but I came back because they are the best. It’s worth the drive east. I refer him to my family and friends all the time. ❤️❤️❤️
