Wisdom teeth removal should be considered in the teenage years to ensure the best outcome. A professional evaluation will include x-ray and examination to determine if an individual should undergo wisdom teeth removal. Contrary to the belief of some, a problem doesn't have to exist for a recommendation to be made to have third molars removed. Extracting these teeth before there a problem can arise may prevent pain as well as expensive consequences.
The wisdom teeth are the last molars to come in and are positioned to the back of the mouth. Failure to have them removed in a timely manner may result in pain and swelling from pressure as these teeth try to grow in. Complications to teeth, bone and gum tissue may develop from teeth trapped beneath the surface. If teeth are able to surface partially or completely, the result may be pressure on adjacent teeth. Uncomfortable and unsightly crowding or shifting in alignment may occur in this situation. Because they are harder to reach in the back of the mouth, there may be a greater chance of gum disease and cavities, as well.
If wisdom teeth removal is the necessary course of action, you want the most comfortable experience possible. To provide a pain-free procedure, local anesthesia and sedation may be combined and used as needed during the surgical procedure. Dr. Hatcher and Dr. Isharani concentrate on the needs of each patient and seek to put them at ease with an emphasis on friendly dentistry.
