Wisdom Teeth Extractions

At Radiant Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Pineville, we strive to protect your oral health. While the goal is always to save your natural teeth, there are times when that is not possible. If necessary to maintain your oral and overall health, teeth extractions may be recommended. For example, if a tooth is severely damaged, decayed, or infected, it may be necessary to remove the tooth.

Our team performs many extractions in our Pineville office saving patients the need for specialist care. This includes wisdom teeth extractions. Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of teeth that we get. Some people never get them. Some get two wisdom teeth; others get all four teeth. In rare cases, the teeth erupt without problems. Unfortunately, most often there is not enough space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to come in which creates problems such as crowding or impacted wisdom teeth.

Reasons for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Choosing wisdom tooth removal services is not a spur of the moment decision. It requires careful thought and consideration. For teenagers or young adults, extractions may be done preventatively. By removing the teeth early, problems such as pain, cyst formation, or impacted teeth never have a chance to start. X-rays help monitor wisdom teeth development. 

The most common reasons for wisdom teeth extractions include:

  • Small face or jaw size
  • The teeth are impacted or may become impacted
  • Damage to the adjacent teeth
  • Potential for future dental problems

Signs of a Problem

If the wisdom teeth begin to erupt, the most common sign of a problem is pain. A tooth that does not have the space to come in correctly is considered impacted. Without enough room, the adjacent teeth may become tilted, twisted, or displaced. This can also lead to tooth infections, swelling, and pain. Additional symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include:

  • Bleeding and/or swollen gums
  • Pain
  • Swollen jaw
  • Bad breath
  • Headache
  • Jaw pain
  • Swollen lymph nodes

Impacted wisdom teeth should not be taken lightly. The teeth need to be extracted to prevent further damage to your oral health.

Went in yesterday for a cleaning and examination. As always it was a easy, wonderful experience. Denise at the front desk is so welcoming and helpful. Veary is the best dental hygienist ever. She remembers specifics about my teeth and gives me helpful advice about my oral health. Dr. Lee comes in and reassures me that my teeth are healthy and I'm happy and healthy for another 6 months. I am proud to call Radiant Smiles my dental home.

Typically a dentist office is a dentist office . . . but Radiant Smiles is something more than that. They really care about their patients, going above and beyond to be sure that each receives the care needed and offering help with scheduling and billing questions. I'm glad I am one of their patients!

Recently took my son to Dr Lee due to an accident that chipped his two front teeth. The office quickly got him in to be seen. Recognizing the aesthetic impact of front teeth - Dr Lee did a careful and beautiful job adding a bonding agent to both teeth, matching the color and shape of the teeth. The office also worked with us on payment - as insurance did not cover this work. Thank you Radiant Smiles!

as a 10 year old I would expect seeing a dentist would be scary and uncomfortable but everyone was nice and caring I got all my teeth fixed. 🙂

Dr. Lee and his staff are the absolute best! I’ve been known to be “cavity prone” and have not have a single cavity since going to Radiant Smiles over the last four years. Also, when my crown broke, Dr. Lee did not hesitate to see me early on a Saturday morning for the emergency. They are clean, nice, and fantastic at what they do. Both me and my fiancé have been going here for 4 years.

Staff is super friendly and helpful; I did not feel obligated to do any procedures and more importantly, they gave me an exact cost for my procedures to be able to make a decision.

I felt VERY SAFE during my teeth cleaning today. It was my first visit since the COVID 19 outbreak. Denise at the front desk was so helpful and efficient. Dr. Lee and Katie were extremely competent in following the CDC guidelines during my cleaning and checkup. I highly recommend Radiant Smiles.

Love it! Never thought I would say this about dentistry 🙂 One year ago I felt extreme tooth ache and I wasn't sure where to go because my doctor has retired at the moment. I found Radiant smiles in the area and decided to go there for help. Dr Lee helped me with my issue right before my California vacation trip. I am so grateful for everyone working here. Professional team and always great experience, every single visit. I brought my husband and couple friends there. I think they are in good hands. Highly recommended!

My family loves this practice! We’ve experienced a number of dentists in different cities (New York, Baton Rouge, California etc) and we are always happy with the treatment we are given. I can tell Dr. Yeung and Dr. Lee are passionate about their work and they always take the time to explain every procedure to us as well as make sure we are comfortable at all times. Their work is so seamless I even fell asleep during one visit. Their educational background is very impressive and reassures us that we are in good hands.The rest of the staff is also very warm and welcoming - their receptionist, Ms. Kimball, is incredibly organized and accommodating. We would recommend this practice to anyone new to the area or anyone looking to change their dental experience for the better!

Dr. Lee is awesome as well as all the support staff especially Denise at the front desk! I’ve been in a lot lately with getting my teeth straightened and I have to say it’s been awesome. I still don’t like getting my teeth cleaned but it’s tolerable with all the creature comforts they offer here at Radiant Smiles

Radiant smiles is great! They are nice, warm and of course professional. My dad found the place and now my whole family is here. They will give helpful advice and if you do need something that is better to do in else dental office—I did a gum tissue trim, they will give you great guidance on that!

I have been seeing Dr. Lee for over 5 years. In these years, he has filled my 9 cavities in total and couple of them very deep. I never had any issue so far. I used to see him in Downtown first but now here. He is the best dentist out there. Never pushes for anything extra and give you the honest advice. When it comes to teeth, I am very sensitive and Dr. Lee does great job at answering my questions patiently. I ll highly recommend you Dr. Lee.

I've worked with Radiant Smiles over the past years (almost 10 at this time); Dr. Dan Lee has not only provided the best dental service i could hope for- but compassion throughout every step of the way. He and his entire staff worked with me to develop a treatment plan and stick to it- laboriously communicating with my private insurance companies to give me the best service possible. I am very thankful to have them at my side; it is a comforting feeling to know your well-being is cared about when dealing with a sensitive issue like dental exams/ work. I am pleased to be one of their patients. I would strongly recommend Radiant Smiles Family Dentistry in Kirkland, WA to anyone of my co-workers, friends, and family.

Staff is incredibly friendly; they remember me by name even though I only see them every 6 months. Either they all have incredible memories or they have a CRM that everyone uses 🙂 Quality is very high in cleanings, and while they provide me with information on items that would help in oral care, I never feel like it's a sales pitch.

I visited Radiant Smiles on a colleague's recommendation and have been a patient for about six years now. I am very satisfied with the entire team at Radiant Smiles. Dr Danlu Lee is a perfectionist in his dental work. Katie and Marina do a very thorough job with dental cleaning. And Denise is a very caring and welcoming Manager.

Katie is the best! Compared to any other dental hygienist or doctor cleanings I have had in my life, Katie has done best cleanings! Patient since 2015. I have nice healthy smile, brush and floss regularly, don't eat many sugars, but I am still prone to quick plague buildup. Katie is expert at her job! She is precise, very thorough, and gets the bad stuff gone, careful near gumline, and I've always left with my teeth feeling super clean and smooth again. She's pleasant in nature, reassuring, and attentive too. When it comes to a good cleaning, I can't recommend her enough!

I started out as a patient of Dr. Dan and loved the welcoming feeling of Radiant Smiles, so when it came to taking my children to the dentist it was a no brainer. The office is conveniently located off 85th in Rose Hill. When we visit the office we are always so graciously greeted by Denise, the receptionist. All the dental hygienists are welcoming and good at making my kids feel comfortable...

I have had appointments with both Dr. Lee and Dr. Yeung and have only positive things to say about their business. The manager, Denise, always brings a smile to my face. They go the extra mile to make patients feel comfortable. I have had cleanings and fillings here at Radiant Smiles and always leave feeling satisfied. I appreciate this private practice's clean and professional environment.
