Dental Checkups And Your Wisdom Teeth

You receive important feedback whenever you see your dentist for preventive care. If you have not yet had your wisdom teeth removed, a benefit to your routine visits is that you can learn when their extraction needs to take place before they cause unpleasant complications. Patients at Sunny Smiles can both receive helpful warnings about the movement of these third molars and arrange their careful removal. Letting this problem go unaddressed can have more consequences than you anticipate. They can cause your teeth to crowd, they can damage their neighbors, and they can cause complications by becoming impacted and only partially erupting.

Timely Wisdom Teeth Removals Prevent Oral Health Complications

It is often necessary to remove wisdom teeth, as people often have too little space in their mouths to accommodate them. Through their removal, we can stop them from creating issues for your neighboring teeth, and we can prevent the complications that will arise if they become impacted, meaning they move into place at the wrong angle or only partially erupt.

What To Expect When Your Wisdom Teeth Are Extracted

We will perform the necessary work to safely extract wisdom teeth before they have fully erupted. If they only partially arrive or shift, we can provide careful treatment to extract them without negatively affecting your neighboring teeth. After your work is complete, we will provide helpful guidance on caring for the affected areas to prevent complications. If it is too late to prevent problems with neighboring teeth caused by the arrival of third molars, we can work on fitting plans to treat them, too, and fully restore your oral health.

Other Benefits To Preventive Dentistry

Early warnings about the eruption of wisdom teeth are important. With that said, this is just one of the many benefits that come from regular dental appointments. We also provide updates about both cavities and gum disease, two common threats that can significantly impact your smile and health if they are not managed appropriately. We can also work with you to address issues like TMJ disorder linked to poor bite movement. We should note that in addition to enjoying thorough reviews, patients who come to us for preventive care also receive cleanings that fight tartar and plaque buildup and lower their risks for future health troubles.
