The movement of your wisdom teeth can turn into a serious problem for your appearance and oral health. Many people lack the space to accommodate wisdom teeth—also known as third molars—and their eruption can cause problems with crowding, enamel damage, and discomfort. If the eruption is disrupted, those third molars can shift or partially erupt, creating more discomfort as well as a more complicated extraction process. Fortunately, when the problem is recognized, the right actions can occur to prevent potentially serious issues. Sunny Smiles has experience treating patients who need to have their wisdom teeth taken out. In addition to providing this service, we can provide regular reviews during dental exams in order to warn you when it should take place.
Discomfort Can Be A Warning That Your Wisdom Teeth Are Moving Into Place
When your wisdom teeth start to move into place, they can push against neighboring molars and cause discomfort. If you ignore that uncomfortable feeling, it can mean letting them continue to push. This can lead to your teeth crowding, harm to your enamel, and even a shift that affects how your third molars ultimately arrive. Acknowledging that uncomfortable feeling and having an evaluation will be important for recognizing when you might need something done to protect your smile.
Booking An Appointment To Have Wisdom Teeth Extracted
Your appointment to discuss your wisdom teeth removal will give us the opportunity to confirm that these teeth are moving and need to be addressed. Once we have determined that this is the case, we can perform the procedure to carefully extract them while minimizing any issues with neighboring teeth and soft tissues. From there, we can take care of the area where the extractions took place and make sure you have the information and support to recover properly.
Regular Dental Checkups Keep You Informed About Your Smile Care Needs
Your dental health is not something to ignore. Letting different problems go untreated can have meaningful consequences, and you can find that something that would have been relatively simple to address will require more involved work because of a delay in visits. Regular dental exams keep you informed and ensure that you have the care you require before there is a question of what to do about complications.
