Professional Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal
Everyone develops wisdom teeth differently. If you’re reading this, chances are, yours have grown in at an angle that may cause health problems for you. Most people’s wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, come in during their teenage years or early twenties. Frequently, people develop four of these molars, and they can grow at different angles. Some may only produce one, two, or three, or none at all. When you have regularly-scheduled checkups at Lasting Impressions Dental Care, we keep a close eye on your third molars, letting you know if they may require extraction or not. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort associated with your wisdom teeth, schedule an appointment with us.
Why Do Wisdom Teeth Require Extractions?
Sometimes, your third molars may grow in straight, becoming another strong set of teeth for you to use. More often than not, they grow in at awkward angles, sideways, becoming impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth create a litany of problems for your teeth and overall oral health. They’re prone to gum disease, cysts, and even tumors. Additionally, because they are trying to squeeze their way into your mouth, they can push around your existing teeth and roots. We recommend wisdom teeth extraction at a younger age before the teeth fully develop and grow their roots. About 9/10 people have at least one wisdom tooth that becomes impacted.
