Although our adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are some situations where removal is the best treatment option. If you are experiencing any pain or issues from your wisdom teeth, All About Family Dental is pleased to offer safe, effective, and pain-free wisdom teeth removal.
Located at the very back of the mouth, wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to emerge, generally coming in between the ages of 14-30, although some people never get them at all. For many, wisdom teeth come in properly and cause no problems at all. For some however, issues arise and intervention is necessary in order to avoid future complications. If problematic wisdom teeth are left untreated, this can lead to pain, gum disease, tooth decay, and occlusion problems.
Wisdom teeth can be a source of concern for many people. Problems can arise if there is not enough room in the back of the mouth for wisdom teeth to properly erupt. For some people, wisdom teeth erupt only partially through the gums. This can result in crowding issues with the surrounding teeth, gum infections, cavities, and/or severe pain. Sometimes wisdom teeth grow in unusual directions, which can lead to complications like crowding and damage to the adjacent second molars. Impacted wisdom teeth happen when there is not adequate room for wisdom teeth to erupt in the mouth and they become stuck in the gums and unable to emerge. If wisdom teeth are impacted in the jaw, this can provide a fertile ground for bacteria to grow at the opening of the mouth, which can lead to gum infection and considerable pain, discomfort, swelling, and even illness. Your dentist can often foresee future concerns with your wisdom teeth, before you experience any problems, so may recommend removing them to avoid expensive surgical procedures later on.
It is always best to be proactive when it comes to your oral health!
