Dealing With Erupting Wisdom Teeth

Most of our adult teeth arrive relatively early in childhood, but our third molars—often referred to as our wisdom teeth—will take longer to erupt. When they do start to move into position, they can create potentially serious issues by damaging tooth structure, crowding teeth, and generally creating discomfort. Their arrival can be particularly disruptive if the lack of space leads to their becoming impacted, which means they do not move in evenly but at an angle; in some cases, they can only partially arrive. Sunny Smiles is prepared to help as these teeth begin to move. We can identify the need for a wisdom tooth extraction and make sure that it takes place before you have to deal with further complications!

Why The Arrival Of Your Wisdom Teeth Can Spell Trouble For Your Smile

As your wisdom teeth start to arrive, you can feel a worrying degree of discomfort. There are several reasons for this. These third molars can press against their neighbors, causing crowding and potentially doing damage to their enamel. They can also shift and move in at odd and uncomfortable angles. The sooner you can have them safely extracted, the less likely it is that you will experience the kinds of complications that lead to further difficulties.

Planning On A Safe Extraction Of Your Third Molars

By performing a safe extraction of your wisdom teeth, we can take away a potential threat to your smile and oral health. We can actually perform a review of your jaw to determine the status of these molars. When appropriate, we can arrange minor oral surgery to have them removed before their eruption can do any harm. In addition to providing this care, we can provide information and support to help you enjoy a swift and comfortable recovery!

Make Sure You Stay Informed About Different Smile Threats Through Regular Exams

Remember that your regular dental exams provide more than just updates about cavities. Problems with your wisdom teeth and other issues can become a threat to your well-being. If you are consistent with checkups and cleanings, you can ensure that any difficulties are resolved before they cause complications!
