Wisdom Tooth Removal
Surgical Procedure to Solve Impacted Wisdom Teeth.
Wisdom teeth aren’t always painful, or disruptive to other teeth. But when they are, having them removed is the option. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that appear when a person is 17-25 years old. Not everyone gets wisdom teeth, and not everyone has to deal with impacted teeth. But if your wisdom teeth are a problem, Soundview Family Dental can help.

Is Wisdom Tooth Removal Right for You?
In some instances, we may recommend the removal of wisdom teeth, if they are affecting your other teeth. When wisdom teeth come in, they can cause damage to the surrounding teeth, or cause a shift, alignment problems, tooth decay, or even damage to surrounding teeth. For these types of situations, extractions can help prevent further issues.
Once the wisdom teeth are removed, you no longer have to worry about them causing more harm, or having more dental work done as a result.
Benefits of Extracting Wisdom Teeth
The procedure for eliminating wisdom teeth is a surgical extraction. If you have never had a removal performed before, it can sound somewhat scary. However, Soundview Family Dental makes the treatment as comfortable as possible. We will numb the area thoroughly, so there is no pain involved with removal. If at any point, a patient feels discomfort, we can adjust to using more local anesthetic. Our goal is to make the procedure pain-free.
Having wisdom teeth pulled is a surgical procedure. With all surgical procedures, there are risks, but they are minimal. The most common concern is an infection. If for any reason after surgery you notice a discharge, or more bleeding than indicated, don’t hesitate to call our office.
Are Your Wisdom Teeth Bothering You?
It may start as a slow dulling ache in the back of your mouth, but you know something isn’t right. An impacted wisdom tooth can lead to many problems, aside from the tooth itself being a painful annoyance. Delaying the removal of your wisdom teeth is not recommended as it can cause infection, gum disease, bone issues, and poor teeth alignment. Even if your wisdom teeth aren’t delivering symptoms of pain, it still may be best for them to be removed. A consultation with one of our dentists will help to determine which course of treatment is best for you and your situation.
Prevent Other Dental Issues
While wisdom teeth are designed to be a set of permanent molars, they are not necessary. Many people never develop wisdom teeth. But for those that do have a set, wisdom teeth can contribute to many more problems, which would require additional dental treatments to correct. When choosing to have your wisdom teeth extracted, you are preventing many of the complications that can occur, and for those experiencing the pain of impacted teeth, extractions can solve the issue quickly.
