Typically, when your dentist addresses an active oral health issue, a tooth extraction is something that is only recommended as a last resort. This may be the case under many circumstances, but when it comes to problems with your wisdom teeth, an extraction can be the ideal course of action. People tend to have their third molars, or wisdom teeth, removed to prevent problems that their eruption can create. Because we often lack space in our mouths for these teeth, their arrival can lead to crowding, problems with neighboring teeth, and persistent pain. You can arrange their removal at Sunny Smiles and prevent complications that can impact your well-being and appearance in unwelcome ways.
Problems Your Wisdom Teeth Can Cause
As your wisdom teeth start to erupt, a lack of free space can make trouble for them. Instead of moving upward like your other teeth, they can become impacted, which means they can move in at an angle or only partially arrive. If this happens, you can experience several issues. They may press against their neighboring molars, leading to pain or potential enamel damage. This movement can also lead to crowding as your rows of teeth are pushed in by a lack of space. Extraction can also become more difficult if teeth only partly erupt.
Scheduling Treatment To Remove Your Wisdom Teeth
Treatment to remove your wisdom teeth can lead to their safe and careful extraction. To make sure that they are removed without causing complications, we may perform minor oral surgery to remove them without interfering with their neighboring teeth. Before committing to this procedure, we can use detailed examinations of your oral structures to make sure this is necessary, and plan the procedure. Remember that early extraction prevents the onset of several issues, like physical harm to neighboring teeth and crowding that can affect your smile.
How Checkups Lead To Early Warnings About Potential Dental Problems
There are several issues you can start to experience when your wisdom teeth begin to move. The movement can cause you pain and sensitivity issues, create swelling around the area where the wisdom teeth erupt, and lead to sensitivity when you bite and chew. You should know that you can also stay informed about the movement of these teeth when you schedule regular dental exams. At these appointments, we use thorough reviews to watch out for any early signs of oral health issues that require our attention.
