Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are up to four new teeth that erupt in the rear of your mouth when you reach adulthood. Their arrival often causes major complications with the health and beauty of your smile, creating long-term issues. At your helpful neighborhood dental clinic in Dallas, TX, our team can offer tooth extraction to protect you from the dangers of wisdom teeth!
The Dangers of Your Third Molars
At one time, these additional molars served a purpose, but now there is simply no room for them and their arrival often means serious trouble for your smile. These are molars that sit at the very back of your mouth and tend to erupt in our late teens or early 20s. When they do arrive, this could crowd your teeth to create misalignment, damage surrounding structures, and increase the risk of infection. This could upset your bite’s balance and lead to issues like TMJ disorder or bruxism down the road. Our team can remove them before they erupt or after, so you can preserve the appearance and function of your smile. Don’t let these third molars lead to serious issues for your oral health!
How We Plan Your Treatment
First, we will conduct an examination with digital x-rays so we can identify the position of these teeth and decide whether they pose a risk to your smile. If so, we may remove some or all of them from your mouth. Our team will take time to ensure the process is a comfortable one too. We will not only administer a local anesthetic to your smile, but we will use sedation to help you enter a calm and comfortable state, even if you have special needs or dental anxiety. We want to ensure everyone can enjoy good oral health and a comfortable wisdom tooth extraction procedure.
Removing Your Wisdom Teeth
Once you’re properly sedated, we will open the gums above the teeth so we can access and remove them. Once we do, we will suture the area closed. A friend or family member can take you home, and we will provide detailed aftercare instructions as you rest for 24 hours. In a follow-up visit, we will remove the sutures from your smile. If you have any questions about how we plan and remove wisdom teeth with a safe and gentle approach, or if you or a member of your family need an extraction, then reach out to our team today to learn more.
