If you have teeth that are impacted, too crowded, or too infected, an extraction may be the best solution. Wisdom teeth extractions are common because they erupt much later in life and can cause some serious problems when they do. However, any tooth may require this procedure. At Galleria Dentistry we can analyze the situation and together we can decide if this is the right option for you.
A Little Wisdom
Wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, but the experience is different for everyone. Sometimes they come in perfectly straight, but they’re just as likely to come in at a right angle. If they don’t have enough room to erupt properly, it can cause a lot of pain, shift your teeth, and even lead to infections.
However, even if your wisdom teeth seem to be coming in straight, it may still be a good idea to remove them. It’s hard to know whether or not they’ll cause complications later on in life, but we can be sure you won’t have any problems if we extract them while you’re young.
Simple and Painless
At Galleria Dentistry we have the skills, experience, and technology to perform these extractions and keep the discomfort to a minimum. A lot of people experience anxiety over this procedure, but we do everything we can to make you feel more comfortable.
