Wisdom Teeth Removal Can Help You Avoid Future Dental Issues

Other than eradicating pain, what benefits are associated with having wisdom teeth removed?
Having your wisdom teeth removed can prevent overcrowding in your mouth, which can cause misalignment of other teeth and a bad bite. It can also reduce the risk of partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth becoming infected and causing pain in the short and/or long term.
How should I care for my mouth after this procedure?
It’s important to follow our recommendations in the days and weeks that follow this procedure. This includes avoiding tough foods that could irritate the area of healing and rinsing with salt water several times a day.
Who is a good candidate for wisdom teeth removal?
Wisdom teeth removal is often recommended for people who have difficulty cleaning their wisdom teeth due to crowding or misalignment. It may also be necessary if your wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning they are growing in at a strange angle and can’t erupt as normal. Some people may even opt for wisdom tooth extraction because of orthodontic concerns if their wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth out of alignment.
If you’re considering getting your wisdom teeth removed, contact us today to get the answers you need to make an informed decision! Our team will be happy to help assess your situation and determine if a wisdom tooth extraction is the best solution for you.
