What To Know About Wisdom Teeth
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Your wisdom teeth are located in the back corners of your mouth and typically develop between the ages of 17 and 24. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the space in their mouth to accommodate these teeth. This causes pain, soreness, crowding, and other problems — especially as you age. It’s the reason over 10 million Americans have their wisdom teeth extracted every year!
Do Wisdom Teeth Always Need to Be Removed?
The best answer is, it depends. Everybody’s oral health is unique. Sometimes, taking a wait-and-see approach to wisdom tooth removal is okay. If your wisdom teeth are causing problems, then we’d recommend an extraction as soon as possible. Especially for teenagers, getting wisdom teeth extracted is a proactive way to prevent painful impaction, gum inflammation, and other issues in the future.
As you can see, there’s a lot to consider. We’ll help you make the best decision for your mouth and your health.
Does Wisdom Tooth Removal Hurt?
Dr. Martin will make sure you’re comfortable and properly numb or sedated during the procedure. After the extraction, you may experience some soreness as your mouth heals. We’ll provide at-home care instructions for minimizing discomfort. You’ll be back to normal in no time!
Hear from our patients
I recently had two teeth extracted and two fillings done in the same visit. Dr. Clint worked quickly and made sure I was pain free the entire time. He even gave me a courtesy call later on just to check and make sure I was feeling OK. I highly recommend Dr. Clint to anybody that experiences fear about going to the dentist.
