What are wisdom teeth? Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molar teeth. People experience the growth of wisdom teeth around their late teens or early 20s. If they grow out to be perfectly aligned, some experience no issues with their wisdom teeth. However, sometimes they don't align with the adjacent teeth, which can cause many problems like infection, pain, bad breath, food impaction and damage to the neighbouring teeth.
At our different locations, we offer services to help keep your wisdom teeth in check. We can provide a thorough diagnosis with the help of an X-ray and/or CT scan to find out if you require surgery for removal. Our next step is to discuss sedation and local anaesthetic options to keep our patients at ease and ensure a comfortable appointment. After the procedure, specific instructions are given to minimize the risk of infection and boost your gums' recovery. For more information, contact us at any of our three business locations: Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental.
Impacted and outgrowing wisdom teeth can cause you significant pain. We suggest you get a problematic tooth extracted to reduce any possible side effects in the future. If left untreated, it may cause infection or cysts that may involve a more complicated surgical extraction.
