WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL
As many people have come to find, we usually don’t have enough space in our mouth for our wisdom teeth to come in properly. When this happens, the wisdom teeth can cause problems with the teeth in front of them, cause gum issues, or even lead to infection. The dental community generally agrees that taking a preventative and proactive approach to wisdom tooth removal is the easiest and most predictable for the patient, often addressing the teeth before they become an issue.
Determining the best time to have your wisdom teeth removed depends on a number of factors including your age, gender, an examination conducted by your doctor, and dental imaging to determine the tooth development and location.
Unfortunately, there are instances when a tooth cannot be saved and must be removed. Teeth requiring removal may cause negative impacts on your oral as well as general health. If left untreated for long enough, these teeth can cause damage to neighboring teeth, pain, or infection.
We know that having a tooth removed is never easy, but we strive to make this process as smooth and comfortable as possible.
