Wisdom Teeth Removal
What is Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Have you been suffering from painful, impacted, or partially erupted wisdom teeth for months? If so, we recommend contacting a dental surgeon. If you have been too afraid or worried about the cost of dental surgery, Shire Doctors and Dentists are here for a friendly conversation where we can talk about the best options available to you.
Wisdom teeth or third molars, are the four last teeth to erupt, generally coming in during the late teen years or early twenties. Because the jawbone has fully grown to its adult size during the late teen years, the jaw is often too small to accommodate the new wisdom teeth comfortably. Therefore, the development of wisdom teeth commonly causes serious pain and discomfort and can eventually lead to more serious issues that require wisdom teeth removal. Problems usually start when wisdom teeth partially come through and get stuck to the adjacent tooth due to the lack of space available. Infection and inflammation can develop in and around the tissue covering the wisdom tooth. You may even notice swollen red gums, pain, jaw stiffness, and possibly a feeling of being unwell.
Why remove your wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth can cause serious issues and severe pain if not attended to. If a problem is detected with the development of your wisdom teeth, it is recommended that you have it removed as soon as possible. Below are the most common reasons for having your wisdom teeth removed.
How Does A Wisdom Tooth Consultation Appointment Work?
Your dentist at Shire Doctors and Dentists will review your dental history, take x-rays, and assess the general health of your mouth and the condition of your wisdom teeth. If the dentist detects an issue with your wisdom teeth, surgery may be recommended to have them removed and eliminate or avoid any uncomfortable symptoms you may have. Early removal is generally the best option and most appropriate as it helps to avoid more serious issues in the future. The procedure may be performed by your dentist or you may be referred to a specialist. Your dentist will explain to you your best options and cost.
