Wisdom Teeth Removal


Wisdom teeth, also called the third molars, develop in the back of the mouth when a person is in their late teens or early twenties. Although a small number of people ultimately keep their wisdom teeth, they are often removed due to the lack of available space within the mouth. Because wisdom teeth often grow at a severe angle, they are very likely to become impacted or crowd other teeth.

In most cases, a patient will be fully healed from a wisdom teeth extraction in about a week; however, this length of time varies from patient to patient, depending upon how severely the teeth were impacted prior to their removal. If necessary, prescription painkillers will be provided to help manage pain. Although most normal activities can be conducted during the recovery process, the patient must be very careful not to disturb the blood clot that will have formed at the extraction site.

During recovery, patients are encouraged to consume soft foods. Patients are also instructed to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid smoking, vigorous exercising and using a straw. In the event that the patient experiences further issues such as dry sockets or uncontrollable pain, they should contact our office as quickly as possible.

If you or a loved one is developing wisdom teeth and you would like to learn more about the removal process, please call us at (509) 737-1800 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Front end staff helpful in setting an appointment for me even with a few reschedules on my part. They also helped me to budget, prioritize, and make my treatment plan attainable financially. Many of my 20 yr old fillings had reached the end of their life so there is plenty of work to be done. The hygienist and Dr. Morgan both took time to explain the x-rays and treatment plan so that I understood the state of my dental health. Top notch staff and facility."

"Been going about 13 yrs. They're very empathetic to my fear of dentistry procedures, stemming from childhood. The staff, from the front desk, to dental assistants, nurses, and Dr Morgan are all a pleasure to do business with. My son, has been going there about 4 years, currently age 5, and he has never left afraid. Grandridge truly does a fabulous job making us both feel as comfortable as possible. Thank you, and well done Grandridge Dental! We love you and your staff!"
