The vast majority of tooth extractions can be painlessly
using local anesthesia, at our dental clinic.

What are wisdom teeth?

This is another name for your third molars. These are the last teeth to appear and occupy their position in your mouth. There are four wisdom teeth: two on the upper jaw—one on the right and the other on the left side of the mouth—and two on the lower jaw—again, one on the right and one on the left. Wisdom teeth typically start to appear at approximately 18 years of age.  

Can a badly positioned wisdom tooth
move my other teeth?

Since the effects of the eruption process of a tooth lasts until the roots are completely formed, these molars can push and misalign existing teeth, even in patients that have undergone previous orthodontic treatment

Oral surgery is the oldest specialty within odontology and consists of the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, anomalies and lesions in the mouth, jaw, teeth, and adjoining tissues.

There are three possibilities:

✔︎ First, wisdom teeth may erupt naturally and support normal and adequate chewing

✔︎ Second, widsom teeth may become totally or partially trapped in the upper or lower jaw, provoking a series of problems that require professional attention.

✔︎ The third, and least likely, occurrence is that due to genetic factors, the third molar does not form and consequently does not erupt.

✔︎ Mechanical problems: 

The teeth push and misalign existing teeth

✔︎ Infectious Problems: 

Inflammation extends to the cheeks and lymph nodes, resulting in problems opening the mouth as well as difficulties and pain when swallowing

✔︎ Problems with adjoining teeth: 

Cavities, demineralization and erosion or wear in the neck of the tooth.

✔︎ Cysts an tumors: 

Formation of very aggressive cysts and tumors that can become considerably large.

Do my wisdom teeth have to be taken out at a hospital?

The vast majority of extractions can be performed at our clinic, painlessly with local anesthesia. A general anesthetic is administered only in extremely complicated cases, and where there is an associated problem. Due to safety reasons, this procedure must be carried out in a hospital and with an anesthesiologist.  

How can I treat these problems?

The best way to treat problems caused by the eruption of wisdom teeth—or, in due case, by their eruption being interrupted by being trapped in the upper or lower jaw— is through various preventive strategies. The main option is always to try and ensure that the wisdom teeth erupt correctly, aligned with the bone and adjacent teeth. If this is not possible, the wisdom teeth should be removed. .    


50% of a treatment´s success is due to the recovery. 

Selecting a destination with a climate favorable to healing and recovery processes during dental treatments is key to a successful result. As you can imagine, climates that are too hot for example the beach are unfavorable to healing as they provoke more and longer-lasting swelling, and they oblige the the patients to stay in their rooms, it is not recommended to go out in order to avoid being exposed to the sun and  high temperatures. 

Our clinic is located in a valley surrounded by mountains and evergreen forests, which allows us to enjoy an average temperature of 59 Fahrenheit degrees, ideal for good healing processes. Being the most attractive colonial city in Mexico, full of pedestrian zones, magical hidden corners and cobbled streets, San Cristóbal de las Casas invites you to go on tours and walks not only in the city but also in the surroundings during the days of your dental treatment.  The food on offer is varied and delicious, and the concentration of cafes, design stores and proposals that mix modern and traditional will complete your journey and experience.

Benefits of Temperate climate

Placing a dental implant is a procedure that is easier in a cool climate than in a warm one.

Heat can produce inflammation, which slows healing, and can make you, feel less comfortable in a warmer climate than you would be in a colder one.
