WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTIONS
At Smith Dental Care we are happy to take advantage of the special expertise that Dr. Smith brings with wisdom tooth extractions. Wisdom teeth are the third and final molars. They generally appear between the ages of 17-25. Located, in each of the four back quadrants of your mouth, these teeth may be removed for a variety of reasons. The primary cause for removal comes when the teeth are impacted, meaning, they have no room to grow. Impacted teeth can cause problems such as, pain, infection, and problems with an adjacent tooth. Other concerns include cyst growth and complications to orthodontic care.
The second reason is preventative. Lots of our patients have elected to have their wisdom teeth removed, even if there are no existing problems. Although some wisdom teeth come in without problems, there is a large population of dentists who have encouraged wisdom tooth removal to avoid future problems. If you have questions about your individual case, do not hesitate to ask Dr. Smith. He would be happy to help you weigh the pros and cons, when you are determining removing your wisdom teeth.
