Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal Marble Falls TX

When most people turn fifteen, their wisdom teeth began to grow in, which means it is time to get them removed. Not everyone needs their wisdom teeth taken out, but nearly ninety percent will experience complications if they aren’t removed right away. Even if you aren’t experiencing any pain, there are several reasons why your dentist may recommend an extraction. At Bright Smiles Family Dentistry, wisdom tooth extractions are a routine and simple procedure that can be done in a few hours.

How to Know if You Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

  • Pain – When wisdom teeth are coming in, it can cause a lot of pain, especially if they aren’t coming in correctly. Most people do not have mouths large enough to support a third molar, which can cause the tooth to shift and grow in against your other teeth. When this happens, the wisdom tooth can become impacted and damage the sounding teeth and gums, causing moderate to severe pain.
  • Crowding – If there isn’t enough room for four more teeth, your wisdom teeth can start to push your other teeth out of the way, causing crowding. Once straight teeth can start to twist and shift until they overlap which can cause serious problems to your dental health. Crowded teeth are hard to clean correctly, making them perfect places for bacteria growth.
  • Half grown - When wisdom teeth grow in, they may break the surface of your gum line, but don’t grow in fully. When this happens, the gum flap wont heal correctly and it can be easy for food particles and bacteria to get caught inside them. This can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and chronic bad breath, spreading to healthy teeth and bone.

See Your Dentist

It is always important to see your dentist regularly for cleanings and exams, but especially between the ages of fifteen and eighteen. When wisdom teeth aren’t removed they can cause serious problems to your oral health.
