Wisdom Teeth Removal Is A Common Dental Procedure
Your wisdom teeth usually start to come in when you’re between the ages of 17 and 25. Sometimes they come in without much trouble, but for most people wisdom teeth removal is necessary.
Your dentist can review your situation and let you know if you’re likely to need your wisdom teeth removed. Often wisdom teeth simply don’t fit in your mouth with other teeth, or they aren’t coming in straight and aren’t going to function properly.
There are a variety of benefits to getting your wisdom teeth removed. They include:
- You have fewer orthodontic problems if your teeth aren’t crowded.
- Removing wisdom teeth can prevent damage to other teeth.
- Less pain from tooth pressure and gum sensitivity.
- Decrease the risk of gum disease.
Impacted wisdom teeth cause pain and can result in other complications. Most people need to have them removed. This process is done by a dentist or oral surgeon and takes place in their office. Before the procedure, you’ll provide the dental office information about your medical history and current medications.
After getting your wisdom teeth removed, you’ll need someone to drive you home. You’ll experience discomfort for a few days. Healing time will vary, and we’ll discuss this with you when you’re here.
There’s nothing to fear about wisdom teeth removal. Most people have to go through it, and you’ll heal quickly. Your mouth will be much healthier after the procedure, and you won’t have to worry so much about gum disease and tooth pain.
