La Prada Family Dentistry sees patients of all ages on a regular basis. This includes those between the ages of 17 and 25, the age when wisdom teeth begin to erupt and cause problems with your smile. In some cases, the mouth can accommodate wisdom teeth; however, this is quite rare. More often, wisdom teeth can pose a threat in a number of different ways. Since protecting your oral health is our number-one priority, problematic wisdom teeth need to be removed. If you’re experiencing pain in the back of your mouth and aren’t sure why call our dental office for an evaluation!
Depending on the situation, wisdom teeth removal can be incredibly simple or moderately complex. For example, wisdom teeth that are clearly exposed are easier to extract, while teeth that have become impacted (or trapped underneath neighboring teeth or gum tissue) require an additional incision in order to access. We may also need to break the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal. Regardless, our dental office makes sure you’re feeling comfortable and informed on your treatment plan before beginning any stage of the procedure.
