Wisdom Tooth Extractions Near You
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of molars to develop and come in. Most people don’t have enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in completely. This is when they cause most problems! You may not be able to clean them well, they may get infected, or become painful, and in some cases, they can form a cyst. Majority of people will notice symptoms in their late teens or early twenties. Some wisdom teeth stay pain-free for years only to become bothersome in most inconvenient times. Addressing wisdom teeth early is great preventative care.
If you’ve waited to have your wisdom teeth removed, you may start to have problems later in life. It’s never too late! We are glad you are taking your oral health seriously. Call for a consultation to discuss your options about keeping or removing your wisdom teeth. In our Gibsonton office we have the best 3D technology to evaluate the anatomy of your wisdom teeth and propose a treatment plan best suited for you or your loved one.
Why are Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Our dentist will recommend removing your wisdom teeth if:
- Pain: it’s no mystery that wisdom teeth can hurt. Whether it’s a cavity, an infection, or just plain growing pains.
- Orthodontics: sometimes wisdom teeth just aren’t a part of the plan! Most people don’t have quite enough room for their wisdom teeth and they can really throw a wrench into your orthodontic plan.
- Misalignment: because most people don’t have enough room, wisdom teeth can come in at funny angles. This can cause pain and pressure to your gums, cheeks, and other teeth.
- Bad taste/odor: wisdom teeth that have come in to the mouth at an angle or wisdom teeth that are partially covered by gum tissue can trap food and bacteria that is impossible for you to clean. This may lead to bad breath and a bad taste in your mouth.
Some patients can experience pain and discomfort from impacted or angled wisdom teeth. If you’re looking to receive wisdom tooth extractions near you, please contact our office to schedule a consultation. Our dentist will take X-rays and examine your mouth to determine if you need to remove them.
We like to meet our patients before performing surgery so we can gather your medical and dental information, having a chance to answer all your questions ahead of time. We will also make sure you know what it will cost, so there are no surprises on the day of surgery. We will also discuss your expected recovery and provide you with pre-operative and post-operative instructions
Most patients choose to go to sleep (IV sedation/general anesthesia) in order to have their wisdom teeth removed. In the majority of cases, Dr. Doroshenko will remove all four wisdom teeth at the same time, so you only have to have the procedure and anesthesia once. You may have some stitches that are completely dissolvable and will come out on their own. You can come in for a follow up or call us if you have any questions or concerns after the procedure, whichever is more convenient for you.
