Maintain your oral health and dental alignment with wisdom tooth extraction.
At Dominion Ridge Dentistry, we care about the health and longevity of your natural teeth. We only suggest tooth extraction if it is the best option for your dental health.
One of the most common types of tooth extraction is wisdom tooth removal. Wisdom teeth typically appear in your late teens or early adulthood.
While not all patients need their wisdom teeth removed, it is often recommended for oral health reasons. Removing wisdom teeth can prevent tooth crowding and other dental issues, especially if they are taken out before they fully emerge.
Our experienced team at Dominion Ridge Dentistry will assess your smile and help you decide if wisdom tooth removal is necessary. Schedule a consultation with us to learn more.
Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?
If you’re considering wisdom tooth extraction in San Antonio, here are some reasons why we often recommend removing them:
Severe pain in the back of your mouth
Irritated or inflamed gums
Cysts or lesions caused by erupting wisdom teeth
Crowding of neighboring teeth
Cavities or decay in the back molars
Once your wisdom teeth come in, they can disrupt the alignment of your other teeth and make cleaning more difficult. However, our wisdom tooth dentist will evaluate the position of your teeth with X-rays and determine if removal is best for you. If so, we remove them before they cause any problems.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction Aftercare
After wisdom teeth removal, you may experience some swelling, pain, and discomfort. However, taking good care of your teeth is crucial for the healing process. Poor dental hygiene increases your risk of complications, including dry sockets or infections.
Our dental team provides detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth after the procedure. Before your appointment, we’ll go over the important steps you need to take. For instance, you should refrain from using a straw for at least 24 hours after the extraction. Using a straw increases the likelihood of developing dry sockets.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Clean offices. I really enjoyed the massaging dental chairs.
One other important note, I have anxiety when it comes to dental work. My dentist at Dominion Ridge said he would do everything he could to make my experience a good one. I believe him because who enjoys going to the dentist to get work done? They were wonderful.

I had a really great first visit. The waiting area was very nice and spacious. The complimentary water and coffee is always a good touch, but who has chocolate chip cookies in a dentist office? Dr. Garcia does. :) The hygienist, Violet, was very gentle and thorough. I left with a smile brighter then when I walked in. See you in six months Dr. Garcia!
