Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Help You Avoid An Array Of Oral Complications
At Harris Legacy Dentistry in Warrenton, we’re happy to offer our valued patients wisdom teeth removal as part of our approach to comprehensive dental care.
Why do wisdom teeth often need to be removed?
Typically emerging between the ages of 17 and 25, it’s common for wisdom teeth to erupt at different angles, grow horizontally, stay hidden in the gums (which can eventually cause them to become trapped), cause crowding issues, and more. These issues can cause a host of oral health problems, including significant pain and sensitivity, jaw damage and discomfort, damage to neighboring teeth, gum inflammation issues, and even sinus problems.
Does everyone need their wisdom teeth removed?
Not necessarily, as some patients will have their wisdom teeth emerge without issue. However, patients should undergo a thorough assessment to ensure that these teeth are unlikely to cause problems in the short and long term.
How do I know if I need my wisdom teeth removed?
If you’re experiencing pain in your third molar region, have persistent headaches or earaches, are noticing discomfort or stiffness in your jaw, or have inflamed and/or bleeding gums, call us for an assessment.
