Studies have shown that wisdom teeth evaluations and extractions result in permanently healthier smiles. Patients should be first seen for their wisdom teeth in their teenage years by a dentist they can trust. Doctor Ross provides careful wisdom teeth examinations and precise treatments.
There’s no need to worry about your extraction, because wisdom tooth removal will increase your comfort and protect your future. Our dental team prioritizes your well-being throughout your procedure. Before your procedure begins, you will be provided with local anesthesia to minimize your discomfort. Sedation dentistry is also a great option that is always available.
Why Undergo Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Most people do not have enough room in their mouths for their final molars to erupt. This can result in pain and health problems, including:
Infection | The most common problem we see with wisdom teeth is a localized gum infection that causes irritation, pain, and swelling. It may become difficult to chew and swallow if the wisdom tooth becomes impacted and infected.
Crowding | One of the most important reasons to remove your wisdom teeth is to prevent crowding. If you don’t have enough room in your smile for all of your teeth, your bite will change and your smile will become crooked. There may be more places for bacteria to hide, resulting in decay and gum disease. Many patients with crowded smiles are displeased with the appearance and the health of their teeth.
Cysts | Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can develop near the area surrounding an impacted tooth. These cysts can be bothersome, uncomfortable, and difficult to remove.
You can eliminate the dangers of wisdom teeth with a simple extraction right here in our office.
