Erbsville Dental Can Help with Wisdom Teeth

They are called Wisdom teeth because of a person’s average age when they arrive. Usually, they pop through sometime between your late teens and your early twenties. There are exceptions, at times they come earlier, during your teens, or much later, even in a person’s early thirties. One constant is that your wisdom teeth are the 3rd and final set of permanent adult teeth to come in. They appear at the very back of the mouth on the top and bottom behind your second set of molars. One more thing you can count on, Erbsville Dental will provide help with your wisdom teeth!

When to Remove?

Sometimes wisdom teeth erupt without any immediate issues but many times the argument for removing them outweighs the benefits of there existence. So, what are some situations that require their removal?

  • When they come in crooked or are stuck against an adjacent tooth.
  • When there is not enough room causing crowding 
  • When they are in a bad position making cleaning and flossing an impossible challenge.
  • When they are impacted, and future infection is likely.
  • Although pain maybe a good indicator for removal wisdom teeth, often erupting may occur without pain but cause damage to adjacent teeth

Inhouse Oral Surgeon

Typically, wisdom teeth are extracted by an oral surgeon who specializes in dental surgery. Upon examination, if extraction of your wisdom teeth is recommended then normally a referral would be made.  At Erbsville dental you will be able to have your extractions done at our clinic with full sedation options.

Usually, during an extraction surgery, you will have all four wisdom teeth removed. Although each person heals differently, detailed post op instructions are given, which if followed allows for a smooth recovery.

In any case, a xray of your jaw will be taken prior to the removal. Your dentist will want to have a very clear picture of how your wisdom teeth are coming in and just as important, what their root structure looks like. Neither you nor your dentist will like surprises midway through the procedure.
