Wisdom Teeth Extractions Can Help Protect Your Smile
A common procedure in which third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, are removed from a patient’s mouth, wisdom teeth extraction is typically done to prevent potential problems such as overcrowding of the other teeth, damage to adjacent teeth or gum tissue, or infection due to poor oral hygiene around the wisdom teeth. At King East Dental, we provide safe, effective, and expedient removal of wisdom teeth. Call us today to book an appointment!
What are the benefits associated with having wisdom teeth removed?
In addition to helping prevent overcrowding and misalignment issues that can arise when these teeth erupt, removal also helps patients avoid damage to their adjacent teeth or gum tissues, as well as infection that can arise when difficult-to-reach wisdom teeth aren’t properly cleaned.
Who should consider getting their wisdom teeth removed?
If you're experiencing pain, tenderness, swelling, or infection in your mouth because of impacted wisdom teeth, it's important to have them examined as soon as possible.
Generally speaking, patients between the ages of 17 and 25 are advised to have their wisdom teeth removed to avoid short- and long-term problems. However, it’s important to note that not everyone will need to have these teeth removed, as some don’t cause any pain, alignment, or infection issues. It’s best to speak with us to determine whether removal is necessary for you.
