When do you need wisdom teeth removal?
The wisdom teeth are the sets of large molars that grow in the back of the mouth. There are four wisdom teeth in total, with two growing on the top of the mouth, and two on the bottom. Typically, wisdom teeth begin to rear their heads sometime between the late teen years and early adult years.
When the wisdom teeth begin to grow too closely to the other molars, it can cause pain and discomfort. By having wisdom teeth safely removed early on, many complications and further issues can be avoided, including:
- An improper bite
- Gum disease
At Centrepointe Dental, we use state-of-the-art technology to examine the mouth. With x-ray images, we can identify where potential problems may arise as a result of wisdom teeth.
If you have a large jaw, you may have no trouble with wisdom teeth, but for most of us, they can cause problems. Thanks to x-ray images, dentists can watch the progress and position of wisdom teeth growth as a teenager, and make recommendations for treatment.
Extracting wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth can grow at different angles and at different depths. The positioning of a wisdom tooth warrants different approaches when it comes to removing it. In an ongoing promise to make each visit comfortable and safe, we offer patients an anesthetic or one of our dental sedation options to help put the patient at ease.
After the procedure
Of course, because wisdom teeth removal is dental surgery, there is a healing process involved. Our team of dedicated professionals is with you every step of the way, providing insights and advice to make your healing process as comfortable as possible.
