Some of us are fortunate enough to be born without wisdom teeth, or to have them grow in perfectly straight. However, most people are not so lucky. Wisdom teeth can become impacted, or cause crowding and smile gaps. This is why we offer precise, comfortable wisdom tooth extractions at our practice.
Wisdom teeth can cause a number of dental problems if they are not addressed and removed, if necessary. Impacted teeth can affect the gum, jaw bone and surrounding teeth. Patients may experience pain, tooth sensitivity and even develop cysts.
We encourage patients to visit our practice for x-rays, even if you aren’t experiencing any dental pain. With a careful record of your wisdom tooth growth, we can determine if an extraction will be necessary. Wisdom tooth extraction is precise thanks to the advanced dental tools and technologies used at our practice. Any post-op discomfort is manageable with over-the-counter medications. We invite you to visit us at Garrison Family Dentistry to learn more about wisdom tooth extractions.
