If your wisdom teeth are causing dental issues, extraction may be the recommended course of action. Dr. Amin Samadian utilizes advanced techniques to gently and comfortably perform wisdom teeth extractions at his San Francisco office.

Prevent Painful Dental Complications

The third molars in the back of your mouth (normally appearing between the ages of 17 and 20) are known as your wisdom teeth. For most patients, these teeth need to be removed in a timely manner. Failing to do so can cause problems like discomfort, gum disease, and bone loss, along with cavities in the neighboring teeth, infection, and other dental complications.

Dr. Amin Samadian and his expert team can perform wisdom teeth removal for patients in the San Francisco and East Bay areas, helping you prevent oral health issues and other potential concerns that can arise when the issue isn’t addressed.

When To Consider Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Dr. Samadian will likely suggest that your wisdom teeth be removed if your wisdom teeth are misaligned, or if your mouth is too small to keep them in a proper bite formation while maintaining optimal hygiene.

Most people will need their wisdom teeth removed at some point. If yours have grown in sideways, are starting to emerge from your gums, or are stuck beneath the gum and the bone, this extraction can become especially crucial, preventing painful and expensive problems before they appear.

The placement of your wisdom teeth and the difficulty of the extraction process will determine the type of anesthesia Dr. Samadian and his team will use. First, a 3D cone beam CT scan will be performed, to reveal the alignment of your wisdom teeth, via a 3D image.

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Samadian will make a small cut into your gum tissue to expose the problematic tooth and underlying bone. Next, he will remove any bone that’s covering the tooth, separating the connective tissue in the process. Finally, Dr. Samadian will extract the tooth using an ultrasonic device, in the most minimally invasive manner possible. The operation will end when Dr. Samadian cleans the debris from the treatment area, using stitches to close everything up. Gauze bandages will help stop any bleeding and ensure the formation of blood clots to begin your healing process. Laser technology will help to sanitize the space and minimize the risk of any complications that can arise with wisdom teeth extraction.

Is Wisdom Tooth Extraction Painful?

While you won’t feel any pain during the extraction procedure, the recovery period may be uncomfortable. You can expect some aching, swelling, and bleeding, but Dr. Samadian will give you detailed instructions on managing your discomfort. You can expect to feel back to normal within a few days.


After wisdom tooth removal, your wisdom teeth will no longer be in your mouth so you shouldn’t have to worry about them causing any future pain or oral health concerns. You’ll be able to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with full dental well-being. To learn more, reach out and set up your consultation today!
