Wisdom Teeth Removal in a Relaxed Setting
Between the ages of 16 and 20, many people begin to grow their “third molars,” or wisdom teeth, at the corners of their mouths. In many instances, our jaws are too small to accommodate these extra teeth, which can lead to various issues. That’s why many patients need to have their wisdom teeth taken out.
Wisdom teeth removal is a routine procedure. For pain management, you have a choice of a few sedation options.
Do I Have to Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Your dentist will be able to assess whether or not taking out your wisdom teeth is necessary. If your teeth don’t fit properly in your mouth, this can lead to severe problems like swelling, pain, illness, and stiffness. Often, wisdom teeth grow sideways, get trapped beneath the gum and bone, or only partially emerge.
At Woodland Park Dental Group, we make it a point to give our patients as much warning as possible if we see signs of problematic wisdom teeth. Often, the sooner they are removed, the less overall risk.
